Cramer's Lightning Round - Popeyes Takes A Breather (5/20/14)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Tuesday May 20.

Bullish Calls:

  • Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen (NASDAQ:PLKI): "Has taken a breather here, but I continue to think the long-term thesis is good. I know it is down. Long-term performance is what matters, and I think the stock goes higher as it remodels stores."
  • GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH): "I like the stock for the long term. I think it is fine."
  • Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE:PXD): "PXD is flatlining right now, but this Permian play it has, the Sprayberry, is going to make it so this stock goes up over time, and I really like it."
  • Aetna (NYSE:AET): "I think Aetna is a terrific healthcare cost-containment play along with that whole group, except for United Health."
  • The Greenbrier Companies (NYSE:GBX), Trinity Industries (NYSE:TRN): "Greenbrier is good. I prefer Trinity, but Greenbriar is good. If TRN goes back to $75, it would be a buy, buy, buy."

Bearish Calls:

  • UnitedHealth (NYSE:UNH): "UNH has a few problems. It needs to be able to step up the game."
