Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Thursday April 30.

Bullish Calls:

BP (NYSE:BP): "We think the dividend is safe... especially $50 oil... I want you to buy, buy, buy BP right here. I think that BP may be among the cheapest integrated oil companies."

Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO): "I believe that the stock is too cheap vs. its earnings power, but it has made a major move off of $15. Perhaps you wait for a pullback if you want to initiate a new position.. I think that these stocks are still buys… good balance sheets, has got some momentum."

Bearish Calls:

H&R Block (NYSE:HRB): "I do not want you to sell that stock now. It is a seasonal play, you are going to have to wait, but I do not want you to take the capital loss here, I think that you should hold onto it for now."

Capital One Financial (NYSE:COF): "It is too speculative for me frankly… I think that they do a miraculous job, but the President seems to be chattering again about credit cards."

Becton Dickinson (NYSE:BDX): "Selling Becton Dickinson right here is a mistake. Do I want to buy it? It is so out of favor that it is tempting… and I have liked it for years. But you have to understand that I do not expect to do anything at all for some time because people are so enamored of what is known as cyclic stocks."

Huntington Bancshares (NASDAQ:HBAN)

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (NASDAQ:GMCR): "Unbelievable… stock had a major ramp, it is clearly a short squeeze… I do feel that you would be greedy unless you took some Green Mountain Coffee Roasters off of the table."

Aracruz Celulose S.A. (Pending:ARA): "I do not know if that dividend can be maintained. I have got to tell you a lot of the big paper companies in America cut their dividend. If that dividend could be maintained then obviously it would be a buy, but I am dubious."
