Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV program, Thursday January 22.
Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMP): "I'm no longer recommending any gas exploration stocks except for Anadarko Petroleum. I also like Kinder Morgan which is all in the distribution of gas.”
Optimer Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:OPTR): "Incredibly interesting speculation. If you were looking to speculate, that could be a big winner. "
Linn Energy (LINE): "I'm no longer recommending any gas exploration stocks except for Anadarko Petroleum. I also like Kinder Morgan.”
Con-Way (NYSE:CNW): "This is a freight-forwarding company and I'm not going to recommend that business. I hope to someday, but not today."
OM Group (NYSE:OMG): "This is an all mineral company and I cannot touch it until I see how the Chinese stimulus shakes out."
XTO Energy (XTO): "Their chairman was on the show recently. This is the second best run company behind Anadarko Petroleum, but I’m not going to endorse it here.”
Harley Davidson (NYSE:HOG): "Still has a downside. Still a discretionary purchase and they're having some inventory problems. Can't touch it."
Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S), Qwest Communications (NYSE:Q): “Both Sprint and Qwest Communications are too speculative for me. They might be a takeover target but I can't recommend it on that alone.”
