Cramer’s Feeling Good About Facebook, Herbalife, and These 2 Stocks; Intuitive Isn’t As Lucky

Jim Cramer made the following calls on July 31st, 2013. What do you think about his picks?

Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Buy on July 25, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $38.31, and its 52-week low is $17.55.

Cramer has been recommending Facebook even since their monster earnings, citing their mobile ad strategy as one that’s working out. Last night he highlighted to viewers that his charitable trust has been loading up on the stock, showing ‘Cramerica’ that his money is where his mouth is.

Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Sell on January 25, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $66.50, and its 52-week low is $24.24.

The Mad Money host told viewers that Herbalife was a place they could park their money, pointing to the hedge fund managers that are diving into the stock. The stock is exactly a dollar off its 52- week high in pre-market trading, and its record second quarter earnings showed 14 percent growth.

HLF-20130801

US Airways Group, Inc. (NYSE:LCC): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Buy on July 25, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $19.70, and its 52-week low is $9.74.

US Airways has had Cramer’s vote of confidence a lot recently, and he used it as a contrasting example of what to buy in the space as opposed to Alaska Air Group (NYSE:ALK). Cramer noted during the lightning round that Alaska Air has been strong the whole time, and said that it was better to be buying stocks that are on the rise, pointing to US Airways as his company of choice.

LCC-20130801

priceline.com Incorporated (NASDAQ:PCLN): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Buy on May 3, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $926.40, and its 52-week low is $553.42.

Travel has been booming, and Mad Money’s boisterous host likes priceline for those looking to get into the space. Earnings for priceline aren’t due until the 8th, but competitor Expedia (NASDAQ:EXPE) slipped after weaker than expected earnings.

PCLN-20130801

Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISRG): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Sell. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Sell on March 11, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $585.67, and its 52-week low is $357.02.

Intuitive was a company that had Cramer’s respect, but not his money last night (or the money of his charitable trust, rather), when he told viewers that, “It’s a good product but I am not going to touch the stock.” Intuitive has recently upped its share buyback program to a total of $1 billion.
