by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Thursday August 22.

Bullish Calls:

LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD): "They have an unbelievable business model. I Iove premium. They are doing fabulously. They are really well-run. This is a great stock and a great company."

Xerox (NYSE:XRX): "I like Xerox. It is a great company. It is an outsourcing company. It is doing well. You've got a good one there."

Baxter International (NYSE:BAX): "If they broke it up, it would go to $90. This is a really good company. The sum of the parts is bigger than the whole."

Bearish Calls:

Amarin (NASDAQ:AMRN): "At this point, it is a call option. It is the riskiest possible, so I can't countenance it (except for a very young risk tolerant investor)." (NASDAQ:BIDU): "I don't like Chinese stocks. Baidu has American-like financials, but take at least half off."

Interpublic Group Of Companies (NYSE:IPG): "The economy is coming back, but the stock is up on a spike. I'm going to say 'don't buy.'"
