Cramer's 'Mad Money Lightning Round': Palm Slapped

To see the 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" Thursday evening from the campus of Georgia Tech in Atlanta:

RBC Bearings (ROLL - Get Report): "Man, I gotta tell you, this is a very plain vanilla company. ... I'm gonna give you one thumb up. ... I gotta split the difference and give you an OK, and maybe even say Don'tBuy."

Palm (PALM): "I think Palm is really scary, and I don't trust it. And why don't I trust it? It's poorly managed, poorly run. ... I like Research In Motion (RIMM)."

Macy's (M - Get Report): "I gotta tell you... the guy Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Terry J. Lundgren is beginning to get me nervous and worried. ... Their stock is low, it seems cheap. ... But there is no way I'm gonna buy a retailer right now. ... I think Macy's is too dicey right now."

IBM (IBM - Get Report): "When I went through the conference call, they directly said the impact of the financial problems this summer is cutting back on orders. ... I think you mark time at $115 until the next quarter."

Google (GOOG) vs. Baidu (BIDU - Get Report): "Baidu is not all that expensive. ... I think Google is gonna be frozen around the $630 level. ... But I am not willing to have you swap out of Google to go into Baidu. It's too risky. I wouldn't be doing right by you."
