Cramer's Lightning Round - No, You Have Not Missed Ford (3/3/10)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Wednesday March 3.


Ford Motor Credit (FCZ), Ford Preferred (F-PS): "I'm not going to fight you on it one bit, you know I like the F-PS ... which is convertible to the common around $17... but I am certainly not going to rule against the Ford Credit, more of a yield play… the stock has moved a lot, I do not care… a lot of people tell me I missed it, I missed it… even today, after I did the whole piece about you have not missed it, people tell me they missed it… I am getting tired of that… you have not missed it."

Hansen Natural (HANS): "I like it, what can I tell you? You know it is a long term play that, I mean it is a long term trend… those energy drinks are long term trends… anybody who has a teenager knows… that one has been in the dog house for a while, it is making a come back…I like the stock… I like it here."

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B): "I am totally with Warren Buffett. He has got a great portfolio… and I like the rails, he is the smartest guy who has ever been in the investing game… the idea that this stock is a sell, not ever, but I have got to tell you that I think Berkshire is a buy, buy, buy…. that is buy to the power of nine."

Human Genome Sciences (HGSI): "I am surprised by how much cash they have, the stock is looking good, they just reported… people like this, I continue to believe that this is a good spec…it is up on a spike so you will have to be a little careful."

AT&T (NYSE:T), Verizon (NYSE:VZ): "Holy cow, AT&T, I feel so good about that cash flow that I want to buy it… have got to tell you we had the CFO of Verizon on John Killian, I think that they have got the cash flow…"

Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS): "I actually at this level would prefer to swap out of Office Depot and buy Staples… which is now down so horribly that it is intriguing to me… and on the Staples conference call, it was not as bad as people were making it out to be… the stock ran ahead, people thought that it was going to be good… Office Depot is in a better moment right now than Staples… but Staples' stock is down so low that I want to pull the trigger and buy some Staples… very contrary call by me."

Encana Corp (NYSE:ECA): " I have got to tell you, we recommended this stock lower…I am reiterating it here, people do not understand that this is a great natural gas play… and if the Encana CEO would come on, I would welcome him… and I would even break out the director's chairs for the man."


American International Group (NYSE:AIG): "I would only put the Snitch and Snooky in that stock, that is how low they are in my book… listen up and listen good, I think AIG is worth… I was going to say nothing, but I am too much of a diplomat… and I do not want to necessarily be in that short house because I hear they are moving it… I think AIG is worth very little… they owe a huge amount of money to the government, and if it were not for the short sellers I think that it would be dramatically lower… I want you to sell AIG… and by the way, listen up government, you should sell your stake right here while it is still worth something... they did get a good price for that big Asian insurance business…"
