Cramer's Lightning Round - MAKO Surgical Is A Much-Hyped Stock (1/3/12)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Thursday January 3.

Bullish Calls:

Whiting Petroleum (NYSE:WLL): "I like that. That company will find it hard to stay independent because it has so much oil."

Hain Celestial (NASDAQ:HAIN), Whole Foods (NASDAQ:WFM): "I think the shorts are all over Hain. I think Hain is doing well. I do prefer Whole Foods (WFM). It has a better trajectory. It is returning capital to shareholders. I think Hain is a buy, because I believe in the long-term trends. Hain is ultimately headed higher."

Sprint (NYSE:S): "I do like Sprint. Stay with Sprint until next year."

Bearish Calls:

MAKO Surgical (NASDAQ:MAKO): "I have disliked that stock forever. It is a much-hyped stock. I am staying away."

Medtronic (NYSE:MDT): "I don't think they have enough of a product portfolio."

GEO Group (NYSE:GEO): "They are difficult to gauge. That stock is at a 52 week high. I would schnitzel a little (take some off the top)."

Amarin (NASDAQ:AMRN): "It is an overrated stock."

Clearwire (CLWR): "That is done."
