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.

American Capital Agency (AGNC): I used to fight this one tooth and nail, said Cramer, but no longer. Now I'm a buyer.

iShares Silver Trust (SLV): I like silver coins, said Cramer. I think they're a terrific thing to hold.

Proscpect Capital (PSEC): I think the economy is stronger than expected and that's a good situation for this stock, said Cramer.

Caterpillar (CAT): I think the stock is too high right now, said Cramer. I wouldn't buy here. Wait for it to pull back to under $90.

Kelly Services (KELYA): A long position is wise, said Cramer. With some new regulations kicking in, I think companies will hire temps rather than hire full time.

FirstEnergy (FE): I wouldn't buy, said Cramer. As far as I'm concerned, utilities belong in the dog house because they're defensive and the economy is getting better.

Express Scripts Holding (ESRX): It's ok to buy, said Cramer, but in the space I like CVS Caremark better.
