Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Tuesday August 15. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

BP (BP)
Exxon Mobil (XOM):
'We've got XOM down a buck. Do you really think that's not going to go to $70 by Friday? That's my gift to you.'
Becton Dickinson (BDX): 'I'm like the BDX announcement at the opening today; that is the better play.'
CYTYC (CYTC): 'This is an Investor's Business Daily company - it has been right as rain until recently... It's down 17% for the year. It's got this thin prep medical diagnostic.'
Yamana Gold (AUY):'... cheaper, better and more fun!'
Countrywide Financial (CFC) : ' I like his stock under $35. I say two thumbs up, way up!'
Disney (DIS)
EuroZinc Mining (EZM):
' I think EZM is a call on the base metals. Don't forget, this is a copper mine in Southern Portugal. And I've got to tell you, I think that the copper stocks have been coming down because it looks like the Chilean labor situation is going to stop, but I feel like it's very important to have the call on; I would buy it.'
Capital One Financial (COF): '... the 18% credit card company. They can even make more money than a pawn shop!'
Deere (DE): 'That was a monster quarter! You should have heard the critics! No matter what they said, DE came back with good quarter, good quarter, good quarter. I like DE! You should stick with DE to $75.'
Varian (VAR) : 'Oh man, great way to play the need to screen baggage.'
FedEx (FDX)
Qwest Communications (Q):
'What is not to like about Q? That guy, Richard Notebart, he has pulled the comeback of the year... I like that stock! Buy, buy, buy! Next stop - $10.00!'
Alon USA Energy (ALJ) : 'No. 1 refining play!'

Bearish calls:

Forest Oil (FST)
Respironics (RESP)
Tyco (TYC):
'That stock is flatlined at $25. I suggest that you sell TYC, if not totally boycott it, and literally own any other conglomerate, and you'll make more money.'
Bema Gold (BGO): 'No! Don't step up to the BGO, my friend.'
EZCORP (EZPW)
Broadwing (BWNG)
United Parcel Service (UPS):
'FDX is the good one; you've got to sell the UPS!'
