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

Timken : This stock is yielding 3.8%. When that dividend payout gets to 4%, Cramer recommended buying TKR.

Imperial Oil : There are better oil stocks with high dividend yields, Cramer said. BP pays 7%, so consider that instead.

Thinkorswim Group : This stock’s up after TD Ameritrade announced it was buying Thinkorswim, so take profits, Cramer said. The money’s been made in SWIM.

Join Cramer live in the studio for Mad Money: The State of Cramerica, a special town hall-style show on Wednesday, Jan. 21. Get your free tickets here!

Jim's charitable trust owns BP.
