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.

Krispy Kreme (KKD): I'm a buyer, said Cramer. I like this stock.

Microchip Technology (MCHP): I like this stock for its yield, said Cramer. Also it has earnings momentum. I'm a buyer.

3D Systems (DDD): I'm concerned that we could see weakness from this entire group, said Cramer. I'm cautious.

Nordic American (NAT): Rates are bad, said Cramer. I'm not a buyer but if you're long it's too low to sell.

BioCryst Pharmaceuticals (BCRX): It's not my kind of name, said Cramer. Play elsewhere.

Alcoa (AA): There is too much aluminum in the world, said Cramer, and as long as that remains the case the stock will likely remain challenged.

IBM (IBM): I think the stock can trade $192, said Cramer, but at that level I'd sell.

MannKind (MNKD): It's not for me, said Cramer. I'd rather play the space with Opko Health.

Regions Financial (RF): It's ok but it's not my favorite in the space, said Cramer. My favorite is Key Corp.
