Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Tuesday October 13.

Bullish Calls:

UPS (NYSE:UPS): "Boy you've got horse sense! I would make that a much bigger position!... Buy, buy, buy!"

People's United Financial (NASDAQ:PBCT): "They have enough capital to buy all the banks that I think Sheila Bair (i.e., FDIC Chairman) is going to throw their way. I do predict there will be another 800-900 banks to go under ...It's one of my great bank plays."

Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG), Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD): "Celgene's every bit as good, and Bob Hugin, who runs that joint... well actually, Bob Hugin is the President... he is a friend of the show and we like him very much and he's made us money consistently."

The St. Joe Company (NYSE:JOE): "I think, at this point, it's too late to sell. I would rather have you own the stock. It is the largest independent land owner in Florida, which is going to come back... I want you to stick with St. Joe."

Bearish Calls:

Select Medical (NYSE:SEM): "Sell, sell, sell... You took a little bit of a loss or broke even on Select Med, which is a hospital play that did not work."

Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE:BKD): "Brookdale Senior Living is all the way back to its 52-week high, and it is time to get out of Brookdale Senior... 44% of it is owned by Fortress Investment Group (NYSE:FIG) and I don't want to get anywhere near that stock. I want you to sell, sell, sell."
