Don't Buy L Brands – Cramer's Lightning Round (5/15/18)

Spectra Energy’s 9% yield is a red flag.

Cramer prefers Merck instead of Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Clorox has both yield and growth.

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money Program, Tuesday, May 15.

Bullish Calls

Consolidated Edison (NYSE:ED): It’s a buy on weakness. Buy American Electric Power (NYSE:AEP) too as it’s a high quality utility.

Clorox (NYSE:CLX): Buy half now and the other half when it starts yielding 4%. It has growth possibilities.

Bearish Calls

Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK): There is already a lot of natural gas in the U.S. so the stock will be down. Don’t buy.

Adaptimmune Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ADAP): The speculative gain is done. Sell it.

Icahn Enterprises (NYSE:IEP): Cramer likes Carl Icahn. “I don’t really know what’s in Icahn Enterprises so therefore I’m not going to be able to opine or recommend the stock.”

Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY): “Bristol-Myers right now does not have what we’re looking for in terms of that cancer franchise that’s going to Merck (NYSE:MRK). I’ve got to tell you, down here, with a 3% yield, it gets attractive. But because of interest rates going higher, I’m going to have to take a pass for the moment.”

Quad/Graphics (NYSE:QUAD): It yields 6% and has no growth. Don’t reach for the yield in stocks that have no growth.

Spectra Energy (NYSE:SEP): The 9% yield is worrisome for Cramer. Also, it has a lot of natural gas and there is an oversupply already.

L Brands (NYSE:LB): It’s a high yield low growth stock. Don’t buy.
