Cramer's Stop Trading! Nothing at All at Microsoft (10/28/10)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on Jim Cramer's Stop Trading! TV Segment, Thursday October 28.

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Akamai (NASDAQ:AKAM), Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG), Norfolk Southern (NYSE:NSC), Peabody (BTU), Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B)

About Microsoft (MSFT), Cramer said, "I don't think there is anything there at all." The company is either not involved in the hot tech spaces or has already run enough in certain spaces; “No matter what they try to do,” Cramer said, “it doesn’t seem to move the needle.”

Critics are concerned about Akamai's (AKAM) declining gross margins, but Cramer isn't worried, because the company is spending necessary funds to guarantee growth. The company is developing faster and better technology to speed up content transfers on the web.

Celgene (CELG) is an "all systems go" stock, especially with its new CEO, Robert Hugin.

Cramer said Norfolk Southern's (NSC) bullish story about coal was "almost unbelievable" and is a good reason to buy Peabody (BTU). Cramer would also buy Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) because it owns Burlington Northern.
