Cramer’s a Fan of Costco, Google, Netflix; Not as Fond of This Stock

Jim Cramer made the following calls on August 19th, 2013. What do you think about his picks?

Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Buy on July 1, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $120.20, and its 52-week low is $93.51.

Costco was another Cramer favorite last night, as he told viewers during the lightning round bluntly that,  “I have a big position for my trust and I’m looking to buy more.” Sales were up in July to $7.87 billion from $7.36 billion last year.

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Buy on August 13, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $928.00, and its 52-week low is $636.00.

Google kicked off the reminiscing last night during Mad Money, as it’s only been 9 years since the company launched by Larry Page went public, netting investors just shy of a 1000 percent return in the mean time. Cramer still likes the stock as well, and kept the buy rating out on Google for his legion of loyal devotees.

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Buy on July 19, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $270.31, and its 52-week low is $53.05.

Cramer pointed out last night that Netflix, among other stocks, returned boatloads to investors since their IPOs, specifically citing the 1,533 percent return that Netflix has netted buyers. Despite the astronomical gain, the Mad Money host still likes the stock, and told viewers as much.

Himax Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:HIMX): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Sell. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Buy on August 1, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $8.19, and its 52-week low is $1.72.

Cramer can’t get behind Himax, and told viewers that the company isn’t really even a takeover target anymore, saying during the lightning round that, “”I can’t recommend it on a takeover basis with that bad quarter.” The company reported solid earnings, actually, making Cramer’s remarks seem a bit sarcastic. Himax reported a sales increase of over 17 percent in the last quarter as well as margin growth.
