Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Wednesday January 16.

Bullish Calls:

Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO): "I think it is good. It has been a hard stock. I see orders coming in from telco. My charitable trust pulled the trigger. I think the stock goes to $24. The quarter is going to be fine."

Total S.A. (NYSE:TOT) (a caller asked Cramer about how tax increases in France should affect Total): "I like the stock. It has a good yield. I continue to think it should be owned. Tax or no tax."

Bearish Calls:

Antares Pharma (NASDAQ:ATRS): "That's injectibles. That is a very competitive business. I'm not a believer or a buyer of that industry, so I'm not a buyer of the stock."

EMC (EMC): "You are right to question it. There have been four downgrades. The last one shook it out of my charitable trust. I feel tech is on shaky ground, and EMC is even shakier. I don't want you to own EMC. Too many downgrades."

Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK): "It is a hard one to own. It is a darn good company, but natural gas prices are not going to go up, and I worry that CHK has too much natural gas exposure. CHK is only a hold and not a buy."
