Stocks discussed on Jim Cramer's Stop Trading! TV Program, Tuesday March 9.

Citigroup (NYSE:C), AIG (NYSE:AIG), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ:AKAM), MetLife (NYSE:MET), F-5 Technologies (NASDAQ:FFIV), Yum! Brands (NYSE:YUM), McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG)

Tuesday was a good day for Citigroup (C) which was expected to issue preferred shares, and AIG (AIG) which rose 12%. With CEO Vikram Pandit clearly holding the reins at CIti for awhile, Cramer thinks investors will eagerly snap up Citi's offering, and Citi will "take out" the $3.88 level and easily reach $4.

Even after its deal with a British insurance company and MetLife (MET), AIG has more assets to sell to raise capital. Cramer suggests the government take profits on some of AIG's holdings.

While cynics dismissed Cisco's (CSCO) new product as "just another router," Cramer thinks this is a "legitimate piece of news," since Cisco's router is 12 times faster than those sold by Cisco's peers. In the networking space, Cramer also likes F-5 (FFIV) and Akamai Technologies (AKAM).

McDonald's (MCD) is doing well in China, and this could mean some upside for Yum Brands (YUM) whose PIzza Hut Stores have been lagging behind. However, Cramer prefers Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG).
