Lightning Round: UPS, Mastercard, Microsoft and More

United Parcels : Cramer’s bullish on UPS, though for the longer rather than short term. Wait until the stock yields 4% before buying so you get some protection against market volatility, he said.

Enterprise Products : With a safe 9% yield, EPD is a buy, Cramer said.

Hercules Offshore : Cramer won’t get behind HERO right now, with oil he thinks dropping to $50 a barrel and Obama in the White House.

Mastercard : Cramer likes Mastercard on the strength of the company’s latest quarter.

Vodafone : Go with VOD’s wireless partner Verizon instead, Cramer said.

Microsoft :Intel , which is yielding 4%, is a “more compelling buy,” Cramer said.

Ecolab : Sell, sell, sell, Cramer said.
