by: Joan Wickham

Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Wednesday, October 22.

Bullish Calls:

Eaton (NYSE:ETN) -- “I prefer Eaton to Ameteck and Roper Industries.”

Bearish Calls:

Dillard’s (NYSE:DDS) -- "No, no, no, no. That one is way too speculative. They have let their stores go and I don't want to touch it. Sell, sell, sell."
Roper Industries (NYSE:ROP) -- "This doesn’t have good dividend and the near term does not look good. I prefer Eaton."
Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII) -- "They are a really well run company, but ATVs are starting to smell discretionary to me, so that one is a don't buy."
Genworth Financial (NYSE:GNW) -- "Genworth is an extremely speculative stock. I'd be cautious there."
South Jersey Industries -- (NYSE:SJI) -- "In this environment, non-regulated utilities are risky. I'm again going to send you to Duke Energy (NYSE:DUK) for better long term performance."
Ametek (NYSE:AME) -- “They're a great company, but they're levered to gross domestic product and GDP is declining. They are not good in this environment. I prefer Eaton.”
