Monday, 19 Dec 2011 | 7:04 PM ET

Sprint Nextel : Cramer doesn't want to own the common stock.

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

MEMC Electronic Materials : "There's nothing there," Cramer said, because the company is about solar chips and fossil fuels have come down in price.

Cliffs Natural Resources vs. Rio Tinto : Cramer doesn't recommend either of these names because they don't have dividends. He would wait until the year is over before taking a look at them.

Texas Instruments : This company has very little growth, the "Mad Money" host said. He would rather have Intel with its 3.6 percent yield.

Telefonica S.A. : Cramer doesn't think the dividend is safe, so he'd sell.

Quad Graphics : Cramer doesn't trust the yield and hates the commercial printing business.

Annaly Capital Management : Annaly cut its dividend Monday night, but Cramer said it was actually smaller than expected. The stock has been under a lot of pressure and he would buy.

InfoSpace : This stock has been "red hot" and Cramer has to find out why. He promised to do his homework and report back at a later date.

Aegion Crop : Cramer thinks this company lacks growth, so he would avoid its stock.

Chesapeake Energy : Cramer likes nat gas, but is appalled at how low prices are. That's why he thinks CHK is going to struggle and why the stock is "stuck in the mud."
