Cramer's Lightning Round - One Of The Fastest Growing Companies In The Universe (8/12/13)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Monday August 12.

Bullish Calls:

Five Below (NASDAQ:FIVE): "I have to say it is (a buying opportunity). I don't usually like to see management turmoil. The CEO is there, business is good, there is long-term expansion. I am not that concerned."

Western Union (NYSE:WU): "Inexpensive stock with a decent yield. It is a comeback after a few missteps. It's an emerging market play. I like it here."

Urban Outfitters (NASDAQ:URBN): "This stock seems to be resting. Some people think it's over. I think it can burst higher, not lower."

Quidel (NASDAQ:QDEL): "I like that group. I like diagnostics. I'm not going to stop recommending that group, because the government likes diagnostics."

Covance (NYSE:CVD): "Best in show. It is one of these ancillary drug and healthcare plays that keep going higher."

Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE:AMD): "I still like it. I think the gaming business is going to fill that company out."

Michael Kors (NYSE:KORS): "We have liked this since the beginning. KORS is one of the fastest growing companies in the universe and should be bought at $72 or lower."

Bearish Calls:

Exelon (NYSE:EXC): "I've got so many good ones ... EXC is poorly run. I don't want to touch it."
