Lightning Round
You say the name of a stock, and Mad Money's Jim Cramer tells you whether to buy or sell.

Are you ready skeedaddy??! It's time for the Lightning Round. Cramer makes the call on viewer favorites.

SPDR Gold Trust (GLD): Gold has almost become a currency and it's something I want to own, said Cramer. It should be a great play longer term; it's and one of my favorite positions.

Patterson Drilling (PTEN): Time to take profits in this one, said Cramer. The domestic drillers aren't doing that well.

Hain Celestial (HAIN): I'm a buyer, said Cramer. I think the company is well run and I'd establish a position at current levels.

Kinder Morgan Energy (KMP): If you're already long I'd stick with this stock, said Cramer, but I wouldn't add to my position.

Priceline (PCLN): I think the stock is fine, said Cramer, but in this space I prefer Expedia because they have a lot of corporate business.

Sony (SNE): I'm a seller, said Cramer. It could go up a little but I think their time has come and gone.

Arena Pharmaceutical (ARNA): I have no real view on this stock, admitted Cramer.

Ford (F): I think the stock is finally getting ready to run, said Cramer.

Weyerhauser (WY): This is a great housing play, said Cramer. I think the world of this company.

Nextera Energy (NEE): I'm not a big fan, said Cramer. I'd rather play energy with Kinder Morgan.
