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.

Verizon (VZ): I'm not worried about the recent weakness, said Cramer. If you're long I wouldn't sell.

Rentech Nitrogen (RNF): I think this stock is fine, said Cramer. I like it.

Goldcorp (GG): I'd rather play the space with the GLD, the ETF that tracks the spot price of gold, said Cramer.

Yandex (YNDX): I wouldn't invest in this overseas company, said Cramer. There are much better places to put money to work.

Nokia (NOK): I think if Apple comes out with a less expensive phone as rumored it will cut into Nokia's business, said Cramer. I'm cautious.

Visa (V): Goldman has called this stock a conviction buy and I'm with them, said Cramer.

Kior Inc (KIOR): This stock is too speculative for me, said Cramer. I say don't buy.

Bank United (BKU): I'm not a buyer of this Florida-based bank, said Cramer. Instead I'd look at some regional based banks in Ohio.

Millennial Media (MM): I think the fundamentals are good, said Cramer, and it also may be a takeout candidate.

Ultra Petroleum (UPL): True it's low, said Cramer, but it's partly a nat gas play and therefore I think it's going nowhere.

CYS Investments (CYS): This company is levered to the economy, explained Cramer. As long as the economy remains strong, this stock is fine and I do think the economy remains strong.
