Lightning Round: Ultra Petroleum, Dow Chemical, BGC Partners and More

Friday, 11 May 2012 | 7:43 PM ET

Ultra Petroleum : This may be a low-cost producer, but that's not reason enough for Jim Cramer to own Ultra Petroleum's stock. He prefers companies that are positioning themselves outside of natural gas.

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

Dow Chemical : This is a very well-run company that pays a juicy dividend yield, Cramer said. He's a buyer.

BGC Partners : While Cramer didn't outright make a call on this stock, he noted the company is levered to brokerage, which is a tough business to be in when few are investing in the stock market.

Brocade Communications Systems : Many investors are in this stock with hopes the underlying company will be taken over, Cramer said. He doesn't think that's a good strategy.

Enerplus : This stock is just too risky for Cramer to recommend right now.

Coca-Cola Enterprises : To Cramer, this is a well-run company. He's a buyer.

Huntington Bancshares : Cramer would buy this stock if it falls under $6 a share.
