Cramer's Lightning Round - Southwest Gets No LUV (1/26/09)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV program, Monday January 26.

Bullish Calls:

Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT): “Mattel has great customer service…”
Hasbro (NASDAQ:HAS): “I happen to be a big supporter of Hasbro…I am believer in putting (the stock) away for children.”
Terra Nitrogen (NYSE:TNH): “You’re swapping out of Mosaic and we are going into Terra Nitrogen. Why is that? It has the best dividend.”

Bearish Calls:

Geron (NASDAQ:GERN): “It’s a great speculative stock and then it jumps gigantically..sell, sell, sell. Take the gain. You do not want to get caught in that speculative stock after that big run.”
Badger Meter (NYSE:BMI): “It’s a cheap stock. All these companies have been crushed…it only yields 1%.”
Petrobras Energia (NYSE:PZE): “I know it has a nice yield. I do not want to be in an oil company that is not domestic. I fear that company. I do not want to go overseas on that.”
Cedar Fair (NYSE:FUN): “They skunked us...They cut the dividend on that… I don’t get what happened.”

Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV): “It’s had its move…it went up and down. I will not recommend airlines on this show...that is just a needle in the terrible airline haystack.”
Hudson City Bancorp (NASDAQ:HCBK): “Every bank is under pressure, even the good ones. Hudson is a good one. It delivered a good quarter. We are recommending no bank stocks on that show. We’ve had it.”
Shaw Group (SGR): “That was a McCain stock…sell, sell, sell. As much as I like the company, I’m not going to recommend the stock.”
