Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Monday August 19.

Bullish Calls:

Nokia (NOK): "I'm not going to disagree with that. I've been recommending it at $3 and change, and everyone thinks I'm a total bozo, but I think the stock could inch up to $5, and then we are going to ring the register."

Salesforce (CRM): "You are fine, even if this quarter isn't a blowout quarter."

Costco (COST): (The caller has 25% of her portfolio in Costco) "I only countenance 20% (of a portfolio in one stock). You have to ring the register to get it down to 20%, even though my charitable trust wants to buy it. I'm looking to buy it at $110."

Bearish Calls:

Spartan Stores (SPTN), AES (AES): Cramer is bearish on these stocks.

Select Comfort (SCSS): "Market leader doesn't cut it. This is a bed company. I'm not going to get behind this one. There is not a lot to like."

Himax (HIMX): "Google buys a stake and everyone goes crazy. Then it has a disappointing quarter. I can't recommend it on a takeover basis if it disappoints."
