Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Wednesday August 5.

Bullish Calls

First Energy (NYSE:FE), Dominion (NYSE:D), Exelon (NYSE:EXC): "I've got to tell you...First energy is a well-run company with a good yield. It's not as good as Dominion, or if you want growth, EXC. Those are my favorites."

Citigroup (NYSE:C): "Every day I come in and want to recommend that stock...every day it goes up by a penny. Why shouldn't this stock go to four? I am struggling but I will bless anyone who decides to buy Citi...WOW..C's a buy...I said it... so shoot me...multiple times."

Smith Micro Software (NASDAQ:SMSI): "Part of the mobile internet tsunami even though it is only a dollar off its high. I am a buyer on any weakness."

Meridian BioScience (NASDAQ:VIVO): "You get a booyah because it is diagnostics and we are pro-diagnostics and so is President Obama. You've got horsesense."

Agnico Eagle Mines (NYSE:AEM): "You know I love Agnico Eagle...that is your play."

Bearish Calls:

Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM)

First Niagara Financial (NASDAQ:FNFG): "It is a preferred bank, has a lot of cash and is incredibly well run...I will buy up to $16."
