Recap of Jim Cramer’s comments on Stop Trading! Friday February 8. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

DRS Technologies (DRS): Since old-fashioned battles are old hat, companies that enable the military to develop guerilla tactics are the sweet spots in the defense industry. Cramer's pick is DRS.

Verizon (NYSE:VZ), AT & T (NYSE:T): Cramer likes both VZ and T for their generous yields and Cramer dismissed talks of a strike at VZ, and said CEO Ivan "the not so terrible" Seidenberg should handle whatever comes his way.

Coke (NYSE:KO), Pepsi (NYSE:PEP): After Pepsi's "bang up" conference call, Cramer declares this cola company as a better buy than Coke because of its diversification, international growth and cheap price. While Cramer still likes Coke, he feels it is in danger of saturation.

Agriculture: Cramer said since wheat prices have been up for five consecutive days, he would take a bit off the top, although he acknowledged that wasn't a popular call.
