Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Wednesday January 6.

Bullish Calls

JDS Uniphase (JDSU): "JDSU used to stand for "Just Don’t Sell Us," then it became "Just Don’t Sue Us"… that is a pastiche if not a mosaic of a lot of different technology companies...it is back, it is bigger than ever… JDSU is still terrific even at $9... I would buy, buy, buy it."

BP (NYSE:BP): "I prefer BP (to Exxon) because of the yield."

Sears Holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD), Home Depot (NYSE:HD): "Just as retail was bad, Sears was bad… now that retail is getting better, Sears will be good… it is just like other retailers… do I like the stock from an investing point of view? I like Home Depot...but you know what, rising tide lifting all boats including Sears Holdings."

RPM International (NYSE:RPM): " I think that was ridiculous, RPM is really good… RPM is a good brand name company… it has got a 4% yield… it is really terrific… I would pull the trigger right here, I think that it is a great stock to own… a nice Midwest company."

Bearish Calls:

Burlington Northern (BNI): "It is terrific to buy Berkshire Hathaway on this… I want to ring the register on Burlington Northern... You have gotten a great gain."

MannKind (NASDAQ:MNKD): "Too hyped, too hyped for me… I mean they are already out telling you that they are going to get approval… I am not going to handle that with MannKind, that stock is in the doghouse until proven otherwise."

Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM): "Exxon Mobil, it is fine… I mean look, I prefer other oils…Exxon I do not care for it that much"

Copart (NASDAQ:CPRT): "The auction car business is okay, it is not a great business… the stock has had a very big run, I would take some profits here."
