Cramer’s lightning round: Barnes & Noble’s stock is trading like it could get acquired

Image result for Cramer's lightning round: Barnes & Noble's stock is trading like it could get acquiredBarnes & Noble: “I’m going to say something I typically wouldn’t say, but it does feel like it’s getting a bid or something, because it just goes up, up and up and yet the fundamentals are not great. So, I don’t want to recommend a stock on a takeover basis, but I see what’s happening and it seems pretty positive.”

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp.: “It’s not a bad stock. A lot of people don’t talk about it. I think it’s pretty good. Now, candidly, I like Accenture more. I like ACN, really, a lot more.”

TE Connectivity Ltd.: “It’s interesting. It’s not great. It does network solutions, got a little cable stuff in it. It’s not compelling enough for me to pound the table.”

Adobe Inc.: “I cannot recommend this stock on a short-term basis because … I recommended it at $50. It’s at $250. I think you buy some and then you wait for it to come down because we’re not going to play the quarterly game. The quarter’s going to be good, but stocks aren’t reacting to the quarter. They’re reacting to the Fed. They’re reacting to the president. That’s not certain enough for me.”

Global Blood Therapeutics Inc.: “It’s had a very big run and it’s coming back down. I think you sold half and now portfolio management would say, ‘You know what? Let the rest run.'”

Activision Blizzard Inc.: “It has to do with Call of Duty. People think it’s not doing that well. I wish [CEO] Bobby Kotick would come on.”

Cramer’s lightning round: I’m not a fan of Netflix’s stock as an end-of-year buy

Netflix Inc.: “Candidly, I’m not a fan of Netflix. I’m not a fan of Netflix because I think that a lot of it depends on the content and I just don’t find the content as compelling as it once was. I think it’s a good story, but not a great story, because it’s up so much for the year and that’s been a real big determinant about how stocks are doing right now.”

Cytokinetics Inc.: “Very speculative, but I’ll endorse it as long as you understand that that thing is literally one of the most speculative stocks out there.”

Yeti Holdings Inc.: “Yeah, I think [its post-earnings dip is a buying opportunity]. I actually liked the quarter. I mean, far be it from me to disagree with the market’s view, but I liked the quarter. I think it’s OK. The market liked the PepsiCos and the Gileads this week, and the Celgenes.”

The Kraft Heinz Co.: “[What’s not to love?] Well, the fact that it has no growth whatsoever. But I’ll do this for you: I’ll say that if you want to hope that they somehow manage to get some growth, then you can buy it. But if I want no growth, I want safety and I want a bond.”

Chico’s FAS Inc.: “No. Don’t ask me about Chico’s. That was a horrible quarter, frankly. I mean, that may have been the worst of the mall-based stores. No, well, obviously there’s Sears and J.C. Penney, but it was a bad call. I don’t want you in that, OK?”

LyondellBasell Industries NV: “People feel that we’re going into a big slowdown and you don’t want to own a chemical company into a slowdown, but I agree with you. I think it represents good value with a 4 percent yield, but I do prefer DowDuPont.”
