Jim Cramer Is Hungry for Wendy’s, Lowe’s, and These 2 Stocks

Jim Cramer made the following calls on September 11th, 2013. What do you think about his picks?

Wendy’s/Arby’s Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:WEN): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Buy on August 29, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $8.27, and its 52-week low is $4.09. Despite currently trading near its 52-week high, Cramer claimed that the stock was not done yet and had more potential to grow. The stock surged approximately three months ago but has recently plateaued, causing some to comment that the time for investment had past. However, some analysts are in line with Cramer, as Wendy’s was upgraded at two firms today as well.

Lowe’s Companies Inc. (NYSE:LOW): Jim Cramer ranked this stock a Buy. Cramer previously ranked this stock a Sell on March 1, 2013. The stock’s 52-week high is $47.58, and its 52-week low is $28.09. The stock has climbed steadily over the past year, with some saying that a $55 target may not be an inappropriate goal to set for the stock. Lowe’s also stands to benefit from a housing recovery, much like another stock that Cramer has recently discussed, The Home Depot (NYSE:HD).
