Lightning Round: Microsoft, Motorola, NYSE and More

Microsoft : Microsoft is “OK,” Cramer said, but he’s not excited about this stock.

Barrick Gold : Cramer thinks SPDR Gold Shares GLD is a better play on this precious metal.

RPM International : Cramer’s bullish on RPM, a “really well-run company” that has a 6% dividend yield.

NYSE Euronext : Cramer can’t get behind NYX right now.

First Solar : With oil as cheap as it is right now, Cramer can’t recommend an individual solar stock. Go with TAN, the Claymore/MAC Global Solar Energy ETF, instead.

Cerner : When it comes to medical records, Cramer recommends Allscripts.

Eaton : Cramer’s bullish Eaton and its high dividend yield, something the company didn’t offer before the market declined.

Motorola : Cramer said he likes Nokia more because of its dividend. But if you must own Motorola, at least wait until after the New Year because he’s expecting a lot of tax-loss selling on MOT. But either way he sees no catalyst for Motorola’s stock.

Jim’s charitable trust owns Eaton.
