Mad Money Lightning Round: Cramer Advises Investors To Buy Illumina
On CNBC's Mad Money, Jim Cramer said during the Lightning Round that Hudson City Bancorp (NASDAQ: HCBK) "turned out to be far more controversial than I realized ... If you want a good regional, I suggest First Niagara Financial (NASDAQ: FNFG)."
Cramer said that Illumina (NASDAQ: ILMN) is in the “sweet spot. It's a total buy."
Jim believes that Hershey (NYSE: HSY) can “go higher, the company has really decided to focus on pure profitability."
For Natural Resource Partners (NYSE: NRP), Jim said, "A very good coal play, and I happen to like coal very much ... Still want you to wait for a pullback."
Cramer advises investors to sell Regions Financial (NYSE: RF). He added, “I don't like Regions' management."
For Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM), Jim said, "I don't like tech but if I had to buy a tech company, it would most likely be Qualcomm."
For Hercules Technology (NASDAQ: HTGC), he said, "I haven't done the work on this one. Have to take a pass."
