Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Monday March 15.

Bullish Calls:

Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL): "This Oracle purchase of Sun Micro was genius! They are going to dominate Cloud Computing. Marc Benioff, from Salesforce, I don't mean that to be attacking you, because you have been a great cloud force... but this was a brilliant move. I think the stock goes to $30... buy, buy, buy! Oracle's a winner!"

Nucor (NYSE:NUE): "They have a lower cost base, and I love that recent acquisition they just made. So, I like Steel, letter X. I think that NUE is the best."

L-3 Communciations (NYSE:LLL): "I want you to step up in quality. I want you to buy L-3 Communications."

FirstEnergy Corp (NYSE:FE): "That acquisition they're making is terrific."

Bearish Calls

CapitalSource Inc (NYSE:CSE): " No!... Way too risky... I can't send you to something like that! That stock's had a very big run... sell, sell, sell! That kind of "mezzanine" lending is not my style"

Force Protection (NASDAQ:FRPT): "Oh geez! No, no, no!...just had a big spike on that quarter... sell, sell, sell! Let's just take it and run... take the money and run, to use the Steve Miller philosophy."

U.S Steel (NYSE:X)

Southern Company (NYSE:SO): "It's way too dependent on coal."
