Cramer's Top Stock Picks: VZ, GNC, CVS, FB
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here are some of the hot stocks Jim Cramer talked about on Wednesday's "Mad Money" on CNBC:
Verizon (VZ) : Cramer said investors looking to avoid the fiscal cliff need to look at beaten-down dividend stocks like Verizon that now yield just under 5%.
GNC (GNC) : Cramer said this purveyor of healthy-living items delivered terrific earnings, only to see its shares fall with the markets. He said it's a buy, buy, buy on further weakness.
CVS Caremark (CVS) : Cramer also liked this drugstore giant, as it too delivered a "triple play" of earnings, revenue and upside guidance only to see its shares decline below where it reported those terrific results.
Facebook (FB) : Cramer said the worst may now be over for Facebook now that its last lockup expiration sent shares up 12%. Cramer said he'd be a buyer on weakness.To read a full recap of "Mad Money" on CNBC, click here.
