YRC Worldwide Keeps Truckin' - Cramer's Lightning Round (6/18/08)

by: Joan Wickham

Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Wednesday June 18.

Bullish calls:

Black & Decker (BDK): "I pulled the trigger today and bought some more for my trust. It's cheap and has a 3% yield, so I said it's time to buy. I am willing to take the consequences. The housing crisis will eventually be over."

Praxair (NYSE:PX): "The gas business is on fire. These are stocks we've been recommending for multiple years. I reiterate my buys on Airgas (ARG), Air Products and Chemicals (NYSE:APD) and Praxair."

YRC Worldwide (NASDAQ:YRCW): "I think it's finally had a great quarter and is starting to rally. I'd be a buyer and pull the trigger. I'd recommend that one."

Bearish calls:

A-Power Energy (OTC:APWR): "This is an alternative energy play in China and I've been loath to recommend it. If it pulls back, I'd consider it. This one's a winner but you were right to take profits."

Kimberly-Clark (NYSE:KMB): "This one's got too much exposure to oil. As long as oil goes up, Kimberly is going down. The same with Clorox(NYSE:CLX). I'd rather see you in Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) because it has diversification."

Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN): "No. no. no. That's a commodity play and I've been telling people to sell it since The Christmas Holiday. I reiterate there's nothing there. GPS is everywhere now; I could make one in my kitchen. Sell, sell, sell!"

Sterlite Industries (SLT): "This is an Indian company doing minerals, I think it's a forward looking company, but India and China are in a bear market. If you want to penetrate the bear market Sterlite would be it"
