Bullish calls:

Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN): "The most undervalued natural gas play there is."
Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG): "One of the most heavily shorted stocks, should not be shorted. I think HOG is worth holding. You are not being a pig, you are just being ... shrewd..."
Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA)
Vornado (NYSE:VNO)

Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS): "I want to swap out of everyone else in that industry, including Office Depot (NYSE:ODP), and buy some Staples."
Halliburton (NYSE:HAL): "Two thumbs up, way up, Halliburton."
FedEx (NYSE:FDX)
Yamana Gold (NYSE:AUY) "I think Yamana is the cheapest. ... It's a gold rush story. I say back the truck up."
Nabors (NYSE:NBR)
GlobalSantaFe (NYSE:GSF): "May be one of the cheapest (drillers) after Nabors."
Satyam Computer Services (SAY): "You have got a winner there my friend. You have got a twofer," Cramer said, adding Infosys (NASDAQ:INFY).

Bearish calls:

Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX): "Stay away." Cramer also lumped in Blockbuster.
Blockbuster (BBI)
CB Richard Ellis (CBG): "You are in a tower of pain. I need you out of CB Richard Ellis. ... The only real estate company I am currently recommending is going to be Vornado."
Office Depot (ODP)
United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS): "Mr. Brown, you are in the bearish play. ... You stick with FedEx. "
TTM Technologies (NASDAQ:TTMI): "Printed circuit boards is a market in retreat ... because Mister Softee (NASDAQ:MSFT) is late with the Vista [operating system] thing. ... You need to sell that stock."
Imperial Sugar (NASDAQ:IPSU): "I'm not recommending a second-best-of-breed sugar company." Cramer instead offered Tate & Lyle.
Jos. A Bank Clothiers (NASDAQ:JOSB): "I don't trust them. I'm giving them the whip. ... I don't like the cut of their jib."
BioCryst Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:BCRX): "I say sell that thing nine ways to Sunday. That is the pharmaceutical equivalent of Vonage (NYSE:VG) the Dog."
