Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Friday February 23. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:
Suncor Energy (NYSE:SU): 'If you want to be tar sands, oil sands, you're going to have to go with SU or ECA.'
Verizon (NYSE:VZ): ' You've got VZ selling cheap... You've got T selling cheap.'
Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ): 'I know a lot of people are saying, 'Jim, shouldn't you run tail; shouldn't you just admit that HPQ wasn't a good quarter?...' No! HPQ was a good quarter. The guidance was good. Mark Hurd has done a great job ... I am telling you to back up the truck HPQ - right here at $40. I see good quarters out for the next 8 quarters ... triple buy!'
Vasco Data (NASDAQ:VDSI): 'This is a data security company that looks so much more like every other one that has been taken over, and it has good earnings ... I would buy it, but not with reckless abandon, because it's at its 52-week high.'
Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN): ' ... if you want ... a takeover, and possibility of big numbers in the out year ... move into DVN. DVN has got that giant Gulf of Mexico find, and the stock is only up 4 points from when it was announced. Pull the trigger on DVN.'
Arch Coal (NYSE:ACI): 'How about that buyback? It's gigantic. The stock is up 10% from when I recommended it... ACI is not done going up!'
Peabody (NYSE:BTU): 'I also like BTU.'
General Maritime (GMR): 'I have been telling people that, if you have to own a tanker stock - if you just insist on owning one - own GMR. GMR had a really beautiful quarter. They've returned unbelivable amounts of money to their shareholders. That is one of the great companies. Buy, buy, buy!'
Prudential (NYSE:PRU): ' Stick with it. It goes to $100.'
Toyota (NYSE:TM): 'TM will be the largest hirer and major company in this country over the next five years. There will be no backlash. I remain a buyer of TM.'
Quest Diagnostics (NYSE:DGX): 'People think the margins are bad ... The quarter is going to be good! The margins are good! The stock is cheap! I would buy, buy, buy DGX!'
Oilsands Quest (BQI): 'No, c'mon!... If you want to be tar sands, oil sands, you're going to have to go with SU or ECA.'
Cellcom Israel (NYSE:CEL): ' Way too dicey ... Just pull the trigger to exit.'
Sprint (NYSE:S): 'Stay away from Sprint.'
Petrohawk Energy (NYSE:HK): 'It's been a punching bag, because of that natural gas exposure ... I would swap out of the HAWK, and move into DVN.'
Frontline (NYSE:FRO): 'I say ix-nay on the FRO.'
Tronox (NYSEMKT:TRX): '... I don't like TiO2. It's too commoditized.'
