CNBC's "Mad Money Lightning Round,"
Jim Cramer said
Monster Beverage CorporationMNST
is a Hold. He is concerned because the
PepsiCo, Inc.PEP
management spoke on their conference call about a weakness in the convenience store section of their business. He would not sell it, because he thinks that
The Coca-Cola CoKO
should buy
Monster Beverage Corporation

Easterly Government Properties Inc DEA is a Buy, thinks Cramer. He explained that it has a good and safe yield and he doesn't believe that the interest rates are going to skyrocket.

Cramer thinks that Consolidated Edison, Inc. ED and American Electric Power Company Inc AEP are better picks than Duke Energy Corp DUK.

Cramer's charitable trust fund owns General Electric Company GE. He is disappointed by the performance of the stock. He added that the management change might be the necessary shake up.

Gardner Denver Holdings Inc GDI is not a Buy, believes Cramer. He thinks that crude oil is going to stop at $50. He added that the stock is a better Sell than Buy.
