Recap of Jim Cramer’s comments on Stop Trading! Monday April 23 Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

General Motors (GM) and Ford (F): Cramer is skeptical about GM comments that subprime problems were to blame for the company's lackluster performance when other sectors such as retail have reported great numbers; "I mean, we did go up 15 out of 16 days, despite the fact that we were torching our houses to get the money from Allstate." He added although Ford is a turnaround story, there is not yet tangible evidence.

Barclays' (BCS), Fifth Third (FITB), Comerica (CMA), SunTrust (STI), America (BAC): On Barclay's offer for ABN Amro, Cramer would buy FITB, CMA, and STI here, but comments BAC has acquisition addiciton; "There is no 12-step program for what BAC is doing... They would have to hit bottom. They have to hit banking skid row."

AstraZeneca (AZN) Medimmune (MEDI), Celgene (CELG), Cephalon (CEPH), Johnson Controls (JCI), Cummins (CMI): Cramer called AZN's acquisition of MEDI a "classic overpay" and may make CELG and CEPH seem undervalued. As time was running out, Cramer said, "I like coal! Johnson Controls ... Cummins $9!"
