Cramer's Lightning Round - Is Citigroup's Vikram Pandit on the Ropes? (2/4/10)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Thursday February 4.

Bullish Calls:

Citigroup (NYSE:C): "I have a $3 stock by the name of Citigroup, where all anyone ever does is say that Vic Pandit is on the ropes… I do not think so… Citi is back to that level where I have to buy it."

Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG)

McDonald's (NYSE:MCD): "I prefer McDonald’s to Burger King… why? Because of yield and because of international…I am thrilled that Burger King is making a turn around… but McDonald’s is the better of the two."

Windstream Corporation (NASDAQ:WIN)

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (NASDAQ:GMCR): "Alright, I'll see your Green Mountain (booyah), and I'll go to GMCR, because I like my Keurig, and the stock was down $3, booyah."

Bearish Calls

Campbell Soup (NYSE:CPB): "...look, I am not going to go wrong saying that they are fine… but I like growth, and they do not have growth… which is why I prefer Procter & Gamble."

Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO): "... this very morning we heard Cisco say good things… it is inexpensive, why should I fool around with something that is too speculative when I have got Cisco?"

Burger King (BKC)

Allied Irish Banks (AIB): "Ireland has lost all discipline… I do not need to be in that $3 stock when I have a $3 stock by the name of Citigroup."

MICRO Systems (NASDAQ:MCRS): "This thing is too niche for me."

Frontier Communications (NYSE:FTR): "I like the yield as much as anybody… this yield, Frontier, is now at 13%.. when I see 13%, what I do is throw the red flag… I would rather see you in Windstream Corporation."
