Dear Jim: My question is on MDU Resources Group. MDU just sent out their annual report and some of the highlights are the following; earned record 431.4 million, increased earnings per share by 36%, 10% total shareholder return, five-year annual total shareholder return 22%, increased common stock dividend 17th consecutive year. Is involved in natural gas, oil, construction material, pipeline and electric. I think it is a company that has a lot to offer. --Sandy
Cramer says: “I do too. A lot of the stocks in this segment have just been killed. I say stick with it because I like the end markets. But oil and gas has gone so out of favor in the past four weeks that I think you’ll still have to experience the house of pain before you get to the house of pleasure.”
Booyah Jim!: I picked up on Sigma Designs from your show. After looking at it very carefully, I decided it was a good buy. It is now down to a third of what I paid a few months ago. I still think it has good prospects for future growth, but I fear that competition could erode this company's position further, and the shorts are into this heavily. Any thoughts? --Kevin in Seattle
Cramer says: “This thing just blew up. And I still don’t understand exactly why it blew up. It did not report a great quarter, but its future’s great.” Cramer said he wants to recommend SIGM, but he’s “gun shy” right now.
