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.

BMC Software (BMC): I don't have great conviction on the fundamentals, said Cramer. There's takeover chatter but I could never advocate buying just for that.

Emeritus Corp (ESC): I don't know this stock, Cramer admitted. I have to do homework.

MGIC Investment (MTG): They just announced a stock offering and if the stock pulls back, I'd get in, said Cramer. Once it's all done, I think the stock could be off to the races.

Hospitality Properties (HPT): I like this stock, said Cramer. Analysts may hate it but not me.

Vale (VALE): I'm a buyer of Vale as a play on China, said Cramer. I think next year at this time the stock will be substantially higher.

Heinz (HNZ): If you have profits I'd take the money and run, said Cramer. According to Reuters, Warren Buffett says he will not pay a penny more than the $72.50 a share he is already offering for ketchup maker and after an initial hesitation, most investors seem to be taking him at his word.
