To see the most recent full "Mad Money" recap, please click here.
Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks that callers offered up during the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Friday evening:
Encore Medical: "This little $5 orthopedic number ... bull market in replacement parts because of the baby boomers."Parker Drilling: "Another worst-of-breed selection. ... You have RIG [Transocean] trading at a discount. ... You have Nabors coming down. ... You have Schlumberger $2 off its high. ... I want you to sell that sucker." Dow: "I think Dow goes to 45. May I lump in DuPont?" Helix Energy: "It can run, but it can't hide. ... I think it goes higher. But remember, I prefer RIG." Intel: "I think they need a change at the helm. ... I think it's flat-lining. The bottom line is paddles, clear, nothing. Sell Intel." NYSE Group: "I think it's overvalued on a earnings basis but it's loved by retail. Why don't we hit the rare Don'tBuyDon'tBuy?" Essex: "I think the stock goes higher. Back to 25." Manulife: "Very good company." Watsco: "You ... have stumbled into the No. 1 name in the group [air conditioning and plumbing] and you should stay long it." Hexcel: "We've got a gigunda market in aerospace. I'm staying long Hexcel and I'm doing a 'mon back*." Homestore: "That Homestore was a brutal miss. ... I've been burned by Homestore ... and I'm not ever gonna forget it. I got the tire tracks on my back." CarrAmerica Realty: "Are you some sort of arbitrager?"
