Lightning Round: Yamana, Cree, Reynolds American and More

Valmont Industries : Cramer likes this conglomerate. “I see bright things happening” at VMI, he said.

Yamana : Go with Agnico-Eagle Mines or Eldorado if you want a gold miner, Cramer said. Still, he’d rather see investors buy the SPDR Gold Shares GLD instead, and only as a hedge. He’s not bullish on gold right now other than as a defensive play for any portfolio.

Cree : Sell Cree.

Marsh & McLennan : Cramer said that Aon is a “much, much better company” than MMC. Buy that stock instead.

Reynolds American : Cigarettes are getting quite expensive here in the States, and for that reason Cramer won’t endorse this stock. Sell RAI.
