Lightning Round OT: Hot Topic, NewAlliance and More

NewAlliance Bancshares : While the stock looks “dead in the water,” Cramer said, NAL is still performing better than many other banks right now. He thinks it’s “OK to buy.”

Zoll Medical : Cramer said he likes this medical-device company right now.

Hot Topic : HOTT hasn’t acted as Cramer expected even though the business seems to be strong relative to its peers. He blamed overall weakness in retail as a whole for the stock’s decline.
