Cramer's Lightning Round - Windstream Is Tough (10/25/12)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Thursday October 25.

Bullish Calls:

Nike (NYSE:NKE): “I like Nike … with Under Armour not doing well, and people deciding they don’t like Nike, it will go to $85. That is where I like it, at $85."

CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), Verizon (NYSE:VZ): "If you want yield, you go to CenturyLink or Verizon (instead of Windstream)."

Royal Caribbean (NYSE:RCL): "How bad can things be if cruise lines go higher? I like those guys. The management team is terrific. It is a good stock to own. Let it go down a buck, and then you can pull the trigger."

Forest Laboratories (NYSE:FRX): "I think it is good."

Bearish Calls:

Windstream (NASDAQ:WIN): "That is a tough one that has good yield. I thought it was a lukewarm story."

Abiomed (NASDAQ:ABMD): "This is a stock on hold waiting for better news. Don’t buy."

BP Prudhoe Bay (NYSE:BPT): "We are not in these now. They keep cutting the distribution. I don’t want you there."
