by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Tuesday February 2.

Bullish Calls:

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): "I'd rather see you in Apple where I have multiple catalysts."

Akamai (NASDAQ:AKAM), F5 Networks (NASDAQ:FFIV)

Zimmer Holdings (ZMH), Stryker Corp (NYSE:SYK): "I like Stryker more than Zimmer, by the way, if you could give me a new elbow, a new back and a new hip… that would not hurt either… because I am a hurting cowboy… I think that Zimmer is good… Stryker Corp. is better.. that is the one that I want you to buy… that will be a better stock."

Merck (NYSE:MRK): "I want you to hold it… I like the dividend, I like the combination with Schering-Plough … I think they are going to be good…"

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Intel (NASDAQ:INTC): "'I think that is a great call, I think that is a terrific stock to leave as a legacy… it is not my favorite… I prefer Intel right here… I also prefer Apple… but you know what, Microsoft is very good…"

Bearish Calls:

3Com (COMS): "Come on... that train has happened.. you are getting a takeover bid… let’s find the next 3Com…what about Akamai? How about F5 Networks Inc?"

Motorola (MOT): "I thought the break up value is there… you do have cash, you do have break up… I think that you can hold it… but you cannot buy it because there is no catalyst…"

Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE): "I was hoping...that maybe the President would mention natural gas in the State of the Union. He did not. The prospects, therefore, have dimmed a little… I cannot be as enthusiastic about CLNE."
