Cramer's Lightning Round: Human Genome Sciences - A Blessing but No Buzzer (4/21/10)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Wednesday April 21.

Bullish Calls:

Human Genome Sciences (HGSI): "You know, look, I have to be honest… even though it is a $29 stock.. in the end, let me just get the right price, it is a $29 stock… it is too speculative… I will embrace it … but please, do not count it as your healthcare, do not count it as your drug, I want you to count it as your spec… and in that case, I bless owning the stock and not giving it the buzzer."

Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX): "Alright, now here is a classic situation… everybody hates Netflix on Wall Street… but those of us who are subscribers, we know better… we know that it is a cove of brilliance… and the way that they are streaming it is genius… so sure enough, the stock goes down before they report… and then it reverses… why? Because the quarter was great and it was the shorts leaning on it… I am a buyer… take it to 'one hundo'…"

Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC)

EMC (EMC), VMware (NYSE:VMW): "That [EMC] was a smoking good quarter… and its subsidiary VMware a good quarter… you have horse sense…"

Bearish Calls:

Quest Diagnostics (NYSE:DGX): "You know, again, it is healthcare… I saw the quarter, I liked the quarter… the stock sold off… I think that is because once again, everybody is trying to reconfigure what a company is worth when we get healthcare legislation… and we got it but it is too hard to read… I cannot make a decision on this so they stay away... Don't buy, don't buy..."

Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD): "The stock has run so much… I would like you to actually swap out of that one and I want you to get into Anadarko … because you have had such a win, I do not want you to lose that gain... you have got too much good taste."
