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.

KKR Financial Holdings: Don't confuse this with KKR, said Cramer. You want KFN. That's my play.

Verizon (VZ): I'd hold this stock but not buy more, said Cramer. Right now I'm more interested in companies with global exposure.

Monmouth R.E. Inv Corp (MNR): I don't know this stock, said Cramer. I need to do some homework.

Synovus Financial (SNV): I think this stock is coming back, said Cramer. I see it as a good spec stock.

International Rectifier (IRF): If you think the semiconductor cycle is coming back, then this stock is a good one to own, said Cramer.

Aflac (AFL): In the insurance space, I'd rather be long AIG, said Cramer.
