'Mad Money Lightning Round': Avoid Synaptics
To see the full "Mad Money" Recap, please
Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks that callers offered up during the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Wednesday evening:
Synaptics (SYNA): "I am not a fan of touchscreens. It's too much of a commodity. Stay away from that group."Methanex (MEOH): "This stock has been so cheap for so long I don't know what to say. I can't get behind it. This group is hard, let's just go with DuPont (DD) or Dow Chemical (DOW)." Dolan Media (DM): "These are specialized business publications. I liked it when it IPO'd, but I don't like anything media right now." Tesoro (TSO): "No, no, we're not recommending any refiners right now. The margins are horrible here. They're getting squeezed. You can go with Marathon Oil (MRO) but that's it." Sirius Satellite Radio (SIRI): "One year and 79 days the FCC has been holding up this merger. Enough is enough; it's an outrage. Sirius should be bought. " World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE): "I was concerned with the quarter, but the number was fine and I say its two thumbs up. WWE rocks." Akamai Technologies (AKAM): "That's old technology. I'd take profits there and invest in some new tech like Eaton (ETN) and Parker Hannifin (PH) and go where the excitement is." ONEOK Partners (OKS): "I've always liked that one. That's a good situation. I like these stocks and their yields. " Spartan Motors (SPAR): "No, no, this is an under-performer. They can't deliver in this environment. I'm sorry."
