Cramer's 'Lightning Round' Picks And Passes: First Solar, Lending Club, Dominion Resources And More

Cramer's 'Lightning Round' Picks And Passes: First Solar, Lending Club, Dominion Resources And More

On Thursday, CNBC’s Jim Cramer rang the Lightning Round bell again. The analyst shared some quick thoughts on a few stocks.

Cramer first went into Cedar Fair, L.P. (NYSE: FUN), which he thinks is great, especially on account of its 5.7 percent yield.

Up next was Weyerhaeuser Co (NYSE: WY). “At 5 percent yield if both Lowe's and Home Depot said that lumber is strong, there is no way I'm going to turn my back on WY,” he stated.

On the other hand, Cramer recommended staying away from Valero Energy Corporation (NYSE: VLO). “We think that the refining margins are going to be squeezed, [so] we don't want to be there anymore. Even with a 4 percent yield,” he said.

The expert also recommended staying away from LendingClub Corp (NYSE: LC) for being “way too risky.”

The host then went into solar energy, and declared himself a “gigantic backer” of First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR) and its management team. However, he does not like SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ: SCTY), he added.

Cramer recommended AMN Healthcare Services, Inc. (NYSE: AHS) next. He commented that he would be a buyer of the stock; “Nothing the matter, Susan Salka [CEO] does a good job and the stock's coming back,” he expounded.

Finally, he shared a look into Dominion Resources, Inc. (NYSE: D), which “should have been in the exact same breath, along with AP which my charitable trust owns and Con Ed. They are all good. You can't own them all, pick one but D is good,” he concluded.

Disclosure: Javier Hasse holds no positions in any of the securities mentioned above.
