Recap of Jim Cramer’s comments on Stop Trading! Friday February 9. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Micron (NASDAQ:MU), Broadcom (BRCM), Marvell (NASDAQ:MRVL): In spite of upgrades from JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank, Cramer would stay away from semiconductors and would not buy tech stocks until the second half of the year. He points to the fact that MU is down 3% and a 1.2% decline in the SOX index of chip stocks as evidence that investors should avoid the sector now. Although he might see the logic of buying Broadcom, given its fall, and Marvell, Cramer cautions that these are strictly long-term investments.

Chesapeake (NYSE:CHK), Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), Agco (NYSE:AG): Cramer says that CHK is "not my cup of tea" because management has "financed the heck out of it." He doesn't see CHK moving, but predicts that MRO is going up. Finally, on AG's rally, Cramer says that bullishness on ethanol can obscure AG's terrible fundamentals.
