Mad Money Lightning Round: Cummins, Public Service, Philips, Bank of America and More

Wednesday, 19 Nov 2008 | 12:26 AM ET

Cummins - Sell. It's a "great company" but not a good time for it.

Public Service - Buy. Good energy company -- but Cramer still likes Duke better.

Philips - Buy. It's at 6% yield and has a good "mosaic" of companies.

Bank of America - Although puzzled why it made a large investment in China recently, this is still one of Cramer's favorite banks. Buy.

Cree - Don't Buy. "Too risky, too gadget-oriented."

Intuitive Surgical - Sell. It's the "wrong stock for this environment." When economies are in a downturn, they'll spend less on health care products ("although they shouldn't," adds Cramer).

SYSCO - Sell. Although a good long-term investment, it's "problematic" for the short-term. Stocks like these are emblematic of those easily manipulated in last-minute rallies like in the last hour of Tuesday's session.

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