Lowe's (LOW) and Home Depot (HD): Cramer wonders why Lowe's is in the "penalty box" since it is HD which has been guilty of pay excesses. However, he believes that Lowe's will benefit from a rally.
Gymboree (GYMB) and Children's Place (PLCE): GYMB and PLCE are the "best back to school plays," according to Cramer who notes GYMB's 6% rise on Thursday.
Archer Daniels (ADM) and Monsanto (MON): Cramer likes these "smart alternative energy plays" and tells investors not to listen to analysts who claim that MON is too expensive.
Six Flags (SIX): SIX brought Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck onto the floor of the NYSE on Thursday, and Cramer questions the wisdom of this move, saying that this publicity stunt does not distract him from the fact that there are "teenage gangs roaming the parks."
