Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Friday, August 1.
Apache (APA) -- “I like Apache. I think natural gas is the fuel of the future. Don’t sell it. This company is growing.”
Pride International (PDE) -- “There is so much drilling going on that the contract drilling is terrific. I want to buy it.”
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) -- “This is a great first pick. The quarter was good. The business is on fire and it is a weak dollar play too.”
KeyCorp (KEY) -- “This is a particularly bad bank but a rising tide lifts all banks. They have not acquitted themselves well. I don’t want to own them. They don’t deserve to be owned.”
Harte-Hanks (HHS) -- “This is a tough business. I think advertising budgets are being cut back and that will affect it.”
