Cramer's Lightning Round - Pfizer Is Not as Bad as It Used to Be (5/5/11)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Thursday May 5.

Bullish Calls:

Dupont (DD): "I would buy Dupont which has a great seed division and a great safety and healthcare business alongside it and a super dee duper CEO. I want to buy DD which yields 3.%."

Royal Dutch Shell: (NYSE:RDS.A): "I don't want you to do a thing... you have horse sense. I said buy RDS.A after they reported... they've got that growth, they've got the yield... they are an improved company. Stay with Royal Dutch Shell."

Juniper (NYSE:JNPR): "This stock is going down, down, down. We know we have to wait till next quarter. We know CEO Kevin Johnson is doing a great job... at one point, it was up a dollar. Is the stock bottoming? That is too hard for me. It is one of the worst charts I've ever seen. I only know fundamentals and the fundamentals are strong. People want to wait until next quarter to see how it's doing. I'm telling you JNPR is doing quite well, thank you... Juniper is kicking Cisco's butt."

Bearish Calls:

Pfizer (NYSE:PFE): "I'm worried about Pfizer... Pfizer is not as bad as it used to be... but that is not enough to make me want to buy the stock."

Monsanto (NYSE:MON): "I feel to have a pure play on seeds is too dicey for this guy. I want to hedge my bets... I don't want to buy Monsanto."
