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.

SolarCity Corp. (SCTY): I think this is an interesting play, said Cramer. I admit that I've been skeptical but I'm not skeptical any longer.

Westport Innovations (WPRT): I like it as a spec play, said Cramer, but I see it as a play on nat gas powered engines and that's a way off, yet.

Amarin Corp. (AMRN): I think there's too much hot money in this stock, said Cramer.

United Technologies (UTX): I think this is a great stock, said Cramer. It's a great play on aerospace which I think will be a top theme for 2013.

Cheniere Energy (LNG): If the stock drops down to $17 -$18, I'd pull the trigger, said Cramer.

Opko Health (OPK): I believe the stock is going higher, said Cramer, but I wouldn't chase it here. Instead wait for a pullback.

Chervron (CVX): I think the stock can climb to $120 by the third week in March, said Cramer. That's the time at which the monthly options expire.
