Cramer's Lightning Round - AstraZeneca Is A High-Yielding Bond (2/23/12)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Thursday February 23.

Bullish Calls:

Threshold Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:THLD): "Classic speculation that you should be involved in...pancreatic cancer kills a lot of people every year, and if someone finds something for it, their stock is going up. I am going to bless it."

American Capital Agency (NASDAQ:AGNC): "I endorse that company...the company is good. They can pay that yield. AGNC is a good stock to own."

Bearish Calls:

AstraZeneca (NYSE:AZN): "It has got so little growth that the 8% yield doesn't tempt me, frankly. It's just a high-yielding bond. I don't like AZN. They've got to get some growth, or they're one hurting cowboy."

Weatherford (NYSE:WFT): "Accounting irregularities equal sell...they have accounting irregularities up the wazoo."

Quiksilver (NYSE:ZQK): "I will tell you once, I will tell you many times, that is too hard for me."
