      • “Biden’s stimulus bill merely met expectations. It didn’t beat the ‘stimulus whisper,’ so to speak,” the “Mad Money” host said.
      • “There are opportunities abounding, you just need to spot them first and figure out if they’re trades or investments,” he said.

      Ticker: UPST


      (5) Cramer’s lightning round: Buy the stock of Boeing (

      • American Airlines: “I think that that stock has now moved up too much. They did the giant equity offering, they had to do it, they had to raise money. I don’t know how much money they’re losing. … My suggestion is: buy the stock of Boeing because, if it really comes back, everyone is short planes and needs them.”
      • American Tower: “I like Crown Castle more. … The reason why AMT’s going down is because, like Crown Castle, it trades off of interest rates. It shouldn’t, these are growth companies, but that’s what happens. I would prefer you to be in CCI than I would you to be in AMT.”
      • Opko Health: “I don’t know what to say, Keith. I’m glad you brought this up. … I’m beginning to believe, you don’t want to hear this, but the day is not arriving, at least not anytime soon.”
      • General Motors: “That company could be worth far more. … I think it’s real good.”
      • Surface Oncology: “I candidly am not in the genomics oncology business, but I know that this is where, if you wanted to have a speculative stock, it seems like a very good place to be.”
      • S&P Global: “I think SPGI is a remarkable company. I like this acquisition, I think it’s great. Some of these high-growth companies have started to roll over. People are scared. I think you should actually buy some SPGI.”

      Ticker: AAL, BA, AMT, CCI, OPK, GM, F, SURF, SPGI
