by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of the Mad Money TV program, Wednesday, December 3.

Bullish Calls:

Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX): "I think gold has a place in your portfolio. I don't think it's too early for gold."
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT): "It think it's OK…I can't get behind it without some form of catalyst."
RPM International (NYSE:RPM): "RPM is down way too much. It's boring, but it's a really well run company and it yields 6%. I have to pull the trigger."
Nokia (NYSE:NOK), Allscripts (NASDAQ:MDRX)

Bearish Calls

NYSE Group (NYSE:NYX): "I've looked at it and I just can't get behind it. I don't want to buy that stock."
First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR):"I have become concerned with the cost of solar with oil down so much. It's getting just too hard."
Cerner (NASDAQ:CERN): "We're buyers of Allscripts Healthcare on this show. I like that one a lot more."
Eaton (NYSE:ETN): "I've been buying Eaton for my trust. It's one of my accidentally high yielders.”
Motorola (MOT): "If you want to buy Motorola, you need to wait until the end of the year. I like Nokia more, though."
