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.

Exelon Corporation (EXC): I own utilities for dividends and as far as I'm concerned these guys haven't been clear about their dividend policy, said Cramer. Therefore I'm a seller.

Questcor Pharma (QCOR): I got this one wrong, admitted Cramer. This stock has become a battleground and I'd walk away from this stock.

Accretive Health (AH): I don't know about this stock, said Cramer. I've got to do some homework.

Lowe's Companies (LOW): There are other stocks in the space that I like better, said Cramer. Instead I'd look at Home Depot or Lumber Liquidators.

Alpha Natural Resources (ANR): I've been against coal, said Cramer, but every dog has its day.

Invesco Mortgage Capital (IVR): I see this stock as a play on the yield curve coming back, said Cramer. And in the last few weeks the potential of that happening has improved. Therefore I think the stock has become more attractive.
