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.

Himax (HIMX): I want to know more about this one, said Cramer. It's been getting a lot of attention after Google took a stake in the company.

Valeant Pharma (VRX): I like it, said Cramer. I'd stick with it.

Applied Materials (AMAT): I'm a buyer, said Cramer. I think it could go to $22.

Merck (MRK): I'm torn, said Cramer. There's a lot of value there but I think management is too conservative to break up.

Hubbell (HUB.B): I think the stock goes higher, said Cramer. I'm hearing that construction loans are being made and that bodes well for this company.

Melco Crown Entertainment (MPEL): It's fine, said Cramer. But I think MGM is a better play in the same space.

DryShips (DRYS): I like this one, said Cramer. However in the space I like Diana a little more.

Universal Display (OLED): I don't think I can make a call on this one, said Cramer. I got Cree wrong so I hesitate to opine.

NQ Mobile (NQ): I much prefer Verizon, said Cramer.
