A couple of weeks ago, as part of Ladies’ Night on Mad Money, Cramer had the members of Smart Woman Securities – an all female investment club at Harvard – pitch him their best stock picks ( watch the video ). Now that some time has passed for him to do his homework, he’s going through each pick to declare a definitive winner.
Jane’s Pick: Flower Foods
Jane pitched baked-goods maker Flower Foods to Cramer as a “no-brainer” that had outperformed the investment club’s portfolio.
While FLO was “right” for two weeks ago, Cramer thinks the stock is now a sell after spiking over 13% on an earnings beat in the face of rising wheat costs. The good news is baked into FLO, Cramer said, and the buyback it just announced is too risky for this environment.
Anastasia’s Pick: PharMerica
Anastasia was bullish on PharMerica’s growth potential as a seller of bulk drugs to nursing homes.
Cramer conceded that PMC has the potential to grow but the company is too new and unseasoned for him to back it here. It’s too early to tell if it can execute and it isn’t worth taking the risk yet, he said.
Kayley’s Pick: Clorox
Kayley called Clorox a defensive play for a tough market with great brand recognition and market share.Page 1 of 2 | Next Page
