Cramer's Lightning Round - I Am Critical And Skeptical Of MannKind (4/17/14)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Thursday April 17.

Bullish Calls:

  • BlackRock (NYSE:BLK): "It shouldn't have reversed. I want to buy it. I think it is doing a really good job."
  • SunEdison (SUNE), First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR): "I have been too negative on Sun Edison. I've done work on it. I think it could be the right way to go. I like First Solar, and now I also think SunEdison has game."
  • Paccar (NASDAQ:PCAR): "I think you are in great shape. There is a truck bull market. Pull the trigger."

Neutral Calls:

  • MannKind (NASDAQ:MNKD): "I think it is a cult stock. If I say something negative about it, I won't be able to go on Twitter for four days. All that will be on the feed is about what a jerk I am. I don't know how big the device is going to be. That is all I'll say, but I am critical and skeptical."
  • Whole Foods (WFM): "I am shocked at the decline in this stock. I own some for my charitable trust. These guys are good operators. We are taking a pause and trying to find the right level to be able to buy more. We are not there. I feel your pain and you feel my pain. I am trying to find an answer. I don't know why it is this far down. Not yet."

Bearish Calls:

  • Isis Pharmaceuticals (ISIS): "The biotech stocks have not found their footing yet. These are danger zone stocks. Having said that, this stock has been cut in half. I think there may be value there. But remember, we have not reached the bottom yet, because they keep pumping out more biotech stocks. There are too many IPOs, too much insider selling. Isis' day will come, but I'm not calling the bottom here."
  • Hologic (NASDAQ:HOLX): "I don't like them. They haven't delivered the numbers for many years."
