Bullish on Sysco Management - Cramer's Lightning Round (9/26/08)

by: Joan Wickham

Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Friday, September 26.

Bullish Calls:

Sysco (NYSE:SYY) -- “At times management can trump even the most difficult industry. Sysco is well run. That’s a good one.”

Bearish Calls:

First Merit (NASDAQ:FMER) -- “I am not going to recommend an Ohio bank as long as National City (NCC) hangs over us like a shroud. We have to wait and see what happens to National City.”
Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) -- “We are not recommending anything China. That market is down 59%. We are not going back to China yet its to hard.”
Lowe’s (NYSE:LOW) -- “Lowe’s is almost a buy. I am two points from pulling the trigger at $21 or $22. I think the stock could spike to $30 once housing turns up.”
Johnson Controls (NYSE:JCI) -- “This is a very well run company but unfortunately has clients like auto companies and that’s not a good business to be exposed to right now."
Colonial Bancgroup (CNB) -- “This bank is too dicey. We are staying with the Fortress Four.”
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) -- “The problem is I heard reports that Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) is struggling. At least some of that should spill over to Google. So don’t buy Google right now.”

No Opinion:

Signet Jewelers (NYSE:SIG) -- “I don’t know this stock. I have been stumped. I will have to do some research.”
