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.

US Steel (X): There have been very positive reports on US Steel but in the space I think Nucor is a better bet, said Cramer.

Honeywell (HON): The stock hit a 52-week high on Tuesday – I don't like buying at that level, said Cramer. I'd let it come in – but then I'd pounce.

Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF): I see it as a bit of a value trap, said Cramer. It's rallying now but I wouldn't be in this stock next year.

Hospital Corp Of America (HCA): I prefer playing health care with Bristol-Myers; it has yield and I think it has upside.

Groupon (GRPN): I'm not really that crazy about their deals or the stock, said Cramer. It could rally but if it does, it will rally without me.

Sandridge Permian Trust (PER): The company appears to be having a tough time, said Cramer, but in the long-run, I think it will be fine.
