Cramer's Take on Headline Stocks: April 27

Description:

In spite of the spine-flu panic on Monday morning, major indices were in the green, with the Dow lately up 0.5%, the S&P 500 up 0.2% and the Nasdaq up 0.2%.

Travel stocks were falling, though, with Carnival (CLL) down almost 10% at midday on Monday, Marriott (MAR) down 2.9% and JetBlue (JBLU) down 7.7%.

On the other hand, pharma stocks, particularly those that produce flu-related products, could get a let up from the virus scare. Gilead (GILD) was recently up 3.7%, and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) was up 6.6%.

In other news, Verizon (VZ) beat estimates in its first quarter, reported adjusted profit of 63 cents a share (analysts expected 59 cents) and sales of $26.6 billion (analysts expected $26.3 billion). Qualcomm (QCOM), on the other hand, lost $289 million in its second quarter. Revenue fell about 6% to $2.46 billion compared with an average estimate of $2.35 billion.

With this in mind, we thought we'd take a look at some of the stocks making headlines on Monday and see what Jim Cramer's had to say about them lately.
