Lightning Round: Microsoft, Gap, Procter & Gamble and More

Microsoft : Cramer said MSFT acts like a utility, and if investors want that, they should buy Duke Energy .

BHP Billiton: Cramer likes BHP as a China play, but Freeport-McMoRan is his favorite minerals stock.

Procter & Gamble : Don’t buy, Cramer said. PG is too expensive, and it doesn’t offer a nice dividend yield.

First Niagra Financial : Cramer is unwilling to recommend bank stocks right now.

Petroleo Brasileiro :ConocoPhillips and its 3.9% dividend yield make for a better investment, Cramer said.

Gap : Sell, sell, sell. Cramer doesn’t like most retailers right now.

Oshkosh : “I am very negative on Oshkosh,” Cramer said.

Cramer's charitable trust owns ConocoPhillips, Freeport-McMoRan and Procter & Gamble.
