Lightning Round: Ciena, Cisco Systems, Merck and More

Johnson Controls : Cramer doesn’t like most things autos-related right now, but if forced to pick one, JCI would be it.

Commscope : Go with Ciena or Cisco Systems instead, Cramer said.

THQ : Sell THQ, Cramer said.

Merck :Bristol-Myers and its 6.3% dividend yield is a better play, Cramer said.

Exxon Mobil : XOM might be the safest of the oils, Cramer said, but he’d rather see investors in any other oil that pays out at least a 4% dividend yield.

Cramer’s charitable trust owns Bristol-Myers Squibb and Cisco Systems.
