Cramer's Lightning Round - Don't Throw Avnet Away (6/13/12)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Wednesday June 13.

Bullish Calls:

Avnet (NYSE:AVT): "Cheap, cheap, cheap. Fantastic's got Europe. It's got semis. People are going to throw it away. I don't want to throw it away. It is a great company."

Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN): " has a better balance sheet and better assets than Chesapeake."

Red Hat (NYSE:RHT): "I think Mr. Whitehurst [the CEO] has told a good story. The company goes down when people get nervous. It spikes on a report, and it goes down again, because people get nervous. We are at the phase when people are nervous, but I like it."

Ensco (NYSE:ESV): " keeps going lower, but it is better than Seadrill."

Bearish Calls:

Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK): "I don't want to own Chesapeake when I can own Devon."

Nabors Industries (NYSE:NBR): "This has been a terrible performer. I'm embarrassed by that. No."

Dr. Pepper Snapple Group (NYSE:DPS): "I think it is a terrific stock to own...they have a good balance sheet and generate a lot of cash. Buy, buy, buy."

Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:VRTX): "I want to be hopeful, but the new revised data does not give me much hope. Vertex is not as good as I first thought."

Seadrill (NYSE:SDRL): "...this one is overextended because of the dividend. I don't care for this stock."

Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR): "This is such a terrific company...but it is what I am talking about when I say industrials are hated. When it yields 4%, I would buy it. At 3.4%, it is not low enough."
