Lightning Round
You say the name of a stock, and Mad Money's Jim Cramer tells you whether to buy or sell.

Smith & Wesson : The Smith & Wesson trade has come and gone, Cramer said, “and I’m never looking back.”

Hudson City Bank : “You’ll always find that on my buy list.”

Inverness Medical : This diagnostics play, along with Hologic , are starting their comebacks, but Cramer won’t recommend them just yet. Don’t buy.

Nokia : Cramer said he likes Nokia, but Qualcomm is a better stock to own.

GrafTech International : “I think it’s overdone to the down side.” GrafTech’s a buy at these levels, Cramer said.

Central European Distribution : Despite Russia’s recent scuffle with Georgia, Cramer said CEDC is OK to own.

Chesapeake Energy : “I believe that natural gas is so beaten down that you have to own a natural gas company…I think you should buy some Chesapeake.”

Zoltek : Go with Owens Corning instead, Cramer said.




Jim's charitable trust owns Qualcomm and Walgreen.
