Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Monday January 5.

Bullish Calls:

Wells Fargo (WFC): “If you like Bank of America, you’ll like Wells Fargo even more…they should do even better when the real estate bottom hits.”
Bank of America (BAC)
Best BUY (BBY): "I like Best Buy. There's a new broadband TV due to be announced at the Consumer Electronics Show and that could be a whole new product cycle for Best Buy.”
Google (GOOG): “ …is a decent stock but in the end it's hostage to advertising. That makes it only a mild buy."
Ultra Petroleum (UPL): “Natural gas is done going down, that's my prediction. They are the lowest cost producer. I want to buy Ultra."
Goldman Sachs (GS): “I think they're cheap, their balance sheet is clean and I believe in their CEO. "
Itron (ITRI): "I recommended this one and I've been wrong, but I'm doubling down right here and re-recommending it."
Dicks Sporting Goods (DKS): “If you want sporting goods go to Dick’s sporting goods.”

Bearish Calls:

Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE): We're getting a rally from hedge fund selling; use it to scale out unless you're a speculator."
Royal Bank of Canada (RY): "That one has been hit by the weak Canadian dollar, but I do think that Canadian banks with decent balance sheets will eventually be OK."
Cabela's Inc (CAB): “That one’s a walking heart attack, that one has been and is a sell.”
