Investors shouldn’t sell the stocks of companies that have escaped financial dire straits, Cramer said Monday, but that seems to be exactly what they are doing.
Case in point: the insurers. Lincoln National is in the process of raising as much as $690 million through a secondary offering, and the company just sold $500 million worth of senior debt notes. But still the stock is down almost 6% just in Monday trading, as Wall Street seems to ignore the new capital.
“I think Lincoln’s actually cheap,” Cramer said during Stop Trading!, “now that they’ve raised the money.”
Cramer called LNC a buy at these levels.
In health care, Cramer likes WellPoint because of its limited exposure to the Medicare Advantage program, from which companies like Humana benefited greatly. He said that President Obama would take aim at firms that exploit government programs for profit.
