by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Tuesday February 9.

Bullish Calls:

Rambus (NASDAQ:RMBS), Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA): " I also like Nvidia .. I think both of those are going higher… I want people in them… there, that is my gift."

Acorda Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ACOR): "I am a huge believer that people who like to speculate should be involved in companies that are trying to solve spinal injuries or MS… these are horrible illnesses and if you can get… it is the Holy Grail if you can solve it… and it really is important, I am willing to speculate with Acorda… That is how strongly I feel about its end market… remember, these companies are not making money but they do have revenue."

Cypress Semiconductors (NASDAQ:CY): "...a better than expected quarter, T.J. Rogers at the helm… that is the buy, buy, buy… $10 stock, seems to be stuck right here… I think that it breaks out to $15 by year end."

Valmont Industries (NYSE:VMI): "I think Valmont comes back… I want you to buy some more… I like the stock… you are doing it right."

Bearish Calls:

Dole (NYSE:DOLE): "I said this... buy, buy, buy… and I was wrong... sell, sell, sell!… and I have done a mea culpa on this, I got faked out by the bankers, I will not get faked out again… sell, sell, sell… that one is a train wreck."

Northern Dynasty Minerals (NYSEMKT:NAK): "This, on the other hand, is speculation of a Vancouver company about precious metals… No thank you… got it… no thank you… I do not speculate in Canadian mining companies… we have got burned too many times… no way, no how."

Synaptics (NASDAQ:SYNA): "You know, this is touch screen, this is mobile, when I hear that I think to myself, why do I need this one? When I can buy Cypress?"
