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.

EOG Resources (EOG): This stock had a big gain since December, said Cramer. Therefore, if you're long I'd cut my position in half and take some profits. But let the rest run.

Westar Energy (WR): I like this stock, said Cramer. It's sleepy and slow but a nice gainer.

Morgan Stanley (MS): I'd buy 100 shares, said Cramer. Because the stock just spiked, I'd buy 50 shares at current levels and another 50 shares if and when the stock pulls back to $20.

Healthcare Trust Of America (HTA): I like this one, said Cramer, and I'm a buyer. I think this one is terrific.

ISIS Pharma (ISIS): I'd stay away, said Cramer. I still like the stock but I think you'll be able to buy it lower.

Nuance Communications (NUAN): I can't get behind their particular type of technology, said Cramer.

Genworth Financial (GNW): I think its ok, said Cramer, but in the insurance space I prefer Travelers.
