Cramer: Go Long On Bacteria

  • Author:

Jim Cramer recommended buying stock in Yum! Brands on Mad Money yesterday, despite e. coli outbreaks in no less than twenty New Jersey, fifteen New York, seven Pennsylvania, and one Delaware Taco Bells (owned by Y!B) (with three additional suspected cases in Connecticut). "Mexican is the new pizza!" he declared, before biting into a grande burrito, as if to prove his point. This strikes us as a somewhat odd time for this (unsanitary) pick, although not necessarily uncharacteristic of Big Jim. Then again, perhaps it was actually Leonard the Monkey who quería Taco Bell?
