Cramer spent the begining of the show recounting the highlights of last night's program.  Tnen he jumped into President Bush's recent speech about gas prices.  Mr. Bush called for an 'ethanol expansion'. That is the play, he said.

Deere & Company (DE) came to mind, but he passed, saying that while it is not a sell, it is not a buy either.  The angle Cramer said to take was with AGCO Corporation (AG) and Gehl Company (GEHL), which he said is a mini-DE (Deere) or mini-CAT (Caterpillar Inc).  Noboday thinks of these companies and thats why you should buy, Cramer said.

Coley Pharmaceutical Group Inc (COLY)

Coley Pharmaceutical Group Inc (COLY) is what Cramer likes in Biotech.  They are working with Pfizer Inc (PFE) and Sanofi-Aventis (SNY), developing big money drugs.  Companies that work with the large companies like this often get aquired.
