Alcoa (NYSE:AA): Cramer predicts that Alcoa won't remain public in 2007, and although he likes the management, Cramer says they can't run the company anymore. He comments that the current share price is "pathetic" and at $27, AA should get a takeover bid of around $34 to $35 a share.

Honeywell (NYSE:HON): Cramer notes that Honeywell CEO David Cote is taking steps to improve shareholder value, that the company is well-run and should move from $45 to the mid-50s.

Altria (NYSE:MO) and UST (NYSEARCA:UST): Altria's breakup will be a "monster story," says Cramer and he also likes UST which he thinks will increase from $57.

Pfizer (NYSE:PFE): Cramer notes that the company's CEO and chairman Hank McKillan, will be departing next year with a $200 million in compensation, and he thinks McKillan should return $50 million to $100 million back to the shareholders because "that's what a really big guy would do."
