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:
: "This is one of the best-run companies in America. ... They do a fantastic job. They're all in this space of breeding mutual funds they build from nothing. ... I want to own this company ... they're doing everything right."
: "This is a tough one ... We don't have a lot of deals going on ... I think the stock can go to 30, but after 30, SellSellSell."
: "This is a commodity product, and when they open a lot of boundaries, business goes down. ... I think they'll do a good quarter ... This is one of the toughest calls ... I don't know. ... I wish I could be more help."
Fifth Third Bancorp
: "It wouldn't surprise me if
( STD) bought this one. ... Between the Canadians and Spanish, you will be getting some buyers ... I want to own this." It's an "anemic franchise but they can be acquired."
: "Sonic's a cheap stock ... I recommended the stock at the 22 level" and "there is no reason to back away ... they are shareholder-friendly."
: "Every time someone asks about Netgear" Cramer says "I like
. ... Why go down when you can go up?"
: The market believes "the rupee has gone so high that (Infosys is) no longer competitive ... I have to agree with the market. ... Don'tBuy. I don't think the stock works here."
: This stock is a "commodity player," and there is "nothing proprietary about Audiovox. ... I give you
... I give you
( MOT). I like Nokia more than yours, I like MOT more than yours."
: "You're playing the momentum game ... That is a dice roll ... The stock is up 83 points ... Buy
." EMC isn't "going to be down 10 one day when you wake up."
: "Caterpillar's been an underperformer ... I think CAT is only 7% or 8% housing ... I say buy Caterpillar ... I'm backing the truck* up." Cramer owns it for his
Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust.
"I don't trust it ... I am not a buyer of
and I am not a buyer of Alvarion. ... I want you to stick with Motorola."
*For all you home-gamers, a 'mon-back opportunity means Cramer would back up the figurative truck and load up on a stock.
