Cramer's Lightning Round - Natural Gas Is Coming Out of Purgatory (11/15/10)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Monday November 15.

Bullish Calls:

El Paso (EP): "It's okay. There are so many others that are less expensive. This one is at its 52-week high. I'm not going to discourage you from it. I think the sector, natural gas, has spent its time in Purgatory and now seems to be coming out."

Citigroup (NYSE:C): "I like the credit trends. I like the fact that the government is almost done (selling its stake). I remain a buyer of Citi."

Verizon (NYSE:VZ), AT&T (NYSE:T): "That's easy for me. I've been behind that one (Verizon) for 6 points. I'm not walking away. All aboard. It's a horse race between Verizon and AT&T."

Freeport McMoRan (NYSE:FCX): "If you want to be in some regular minerals, just go own Freeport McMoRan."

Akamai (NASDAQ:AKAM): "I thought the downgrade was, buy, buy. It has not slowed down, we know that regular business has had some pricing pressure. I think Akamai is a buy."

Baldor Electric (BEZ): "I am going to go with Baldor Electric. I think it is the better value."

Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), MGM Mirage (NYSE:MGM), Las Vegas Casinos (NYSE:LVS): "Wynn Resorts is the best way to play this industry. It's Wynn Resorts, then it's Las Vegas Sands, with the greatest turnaround, and then MGM is the speculative play. All of these work for me."

Bearish Calls:

VCA Antech (NASDAQ:WOOF): "No, too hard...sell, sell, sell...No thank you."

Taseko Mines (NYSEMKT:TGB): "I don't want to touch it. Sell, sell, sell."

Power Integrations Play (NASDAQ:POWI): "No, no, no. Not for me."
