Cramer's Running Back Stock Picks (CSCO, AMZN, GOOG, FCX)

Jim Cramer continued his ‘fantasy football draft methodology’ to compile a stock portfolio that can survive through a coming recession.  He wants a stock that can deliver consistent and long-term growth for his four Running Back picks:

  • Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) is going to keep delivering and he has broken out of his past quiet-man role.
  • Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) is just getting better and better after being held back a year, and it grew 9% year over year by comScore data. This is one of Cramer’s “New Four Horsemen of Tech” and he thinks it goes higher.
  • Freeport McMoran (NYSE:FCX) is growing from everywhere outside the U.S. that has a lock on the copper market.
  • (NASDAQ:AMZN) is another pick from his “New Four Horsemen of Tech” that just hit a new year high today.

Here are his Tight End picks from last night that have upside with dividend stocks.  Yesterday he also gave his “wide receiver picks” that are the aggressive big scoring stocks.  Monday night he gave his picks that were not defensive, but still the leaders as the quarterback.  But before that he gave his solid Defensive linemen picks that are defensive stock picks
