Haliburton (HAL): In spite of a lackluster quarter, Cramer would buy HAL ahead of its $3 billion buyback, because he believes the problem is not with the company, but with North America; " This is why they're moving to Dubai." He notes that stock is down to where it was three weeks ago, is the cheapest in the group and has a lot of cash. Cramer adds he does not see a reason for HAL to stay public.
Sysco (SYY), Ceridian Corporation (CEN), Landry's (LNY): Speaking of the possibility of companies going private, Cramer thinks CEN should cease to be public, comments LNY's reminds him Dollar General which was taken private by KKR Private Equity, and thinks SYY could use "the blueprint of Aramak," a food company that went private last year, for its own potential leveraged buyout.
Motorola (MOT): Concerning MOT CEO Ed Zander's cancellation of an appearance at next week's CTIA wireless conference, Cramer says he had "better listen" to Carl Icahn, "the single best force in capitalism right now."
