Cramer's Lightning Round - If You Want to Stick Your Head in the Lion's Den...(3/1/10)

by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Monday March 1

Banco Santander (NYSE:BSBR): "If you want to stick your head in the lion's den, stick it into Banco Santander… and stay away from the National Bank of Greece."

Insituform Technologies (INSU): "I said that is the kind of infrastructure play that we want to be in… I think that you have got a winner, even here at 52-week high."

Ford (NYSE:F), Ford Preferred (F-PS): "Ford just broke out today, I think that the sales are going to be magnificent tomorrow… why do I like the Ford Preferred? Because it is in arrears… meaning that they have a lot of dividends that they are going to have to pay when they eventually call it."

Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO): "Cisco is stalled here… it is one of the things that upsets me the most about technology… everybody is doing well in this group and Cisco has probably got more earnings power than any of them, and the stock has been stuck at $24."

Bearish Calls:

Coca-Cola Enterprises (NYSE:CCE): "No, no, no, you get the dividend and then we are happy… we are happy, we are going to find the next one… we are going to find the next one because that deal is all played out… we have got to find the next big thing… that was the last big thing."

Acme Packet (NASDAQ:APKT): "Oh boy, 52-week high for this technology networking company… I say wait, I say wait… I think the stock has had too big a run… we recommended that stock as part of the broken secondaries a couple of years ago… I mean the broken IPOs.. it is too late for me… I want it to come in."

Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM): "I thought Mr. Toyoda handled himself pretty well, he was under a lot of glare there and intense scrutiny… but that said, I do not care… I want to own Ford."

National Bank of Greece (NBG): "Too hard, too hard, some stocks are true battle grounds…It is just too dicey… we do not need to roll the dice."
