Stocks discussed on the lightning round of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Monday May 17.

Bullish Calls:

City Telecom (CTEL): "Okay, I bumped into a woman who bought this after I had a great dinner at Union Square Café… and she was adamant that she had made a mistake… I said, with that yield… go buy another little bit… just go buy a little more… I think that that 10% is good… she was off like about .22 cents… she wanted to kill me… I think she was stalking me… I mean I am not kidding, I think she was stalking me."

Frontier Communications (FTR): "I know that the yield seems too big to be true…but we had the CEO (Maggie Wilderotter) on and she says that she can pull it off… I am going to stick with her… I am a buyer of FTR."

American Superconductor (AMSC): "This is a real growth stock… I am a believer… it is a power technology company that our country needs… I like it and I think it is a buy."

Cedar Fair (FUN): "I think that I am a believer here… I would be a buyer of FUN… they are one of the largest theme park players… Disney had decent numbers in its theme park… I am a believer."

Sprint Nextel (S): "Sprint has bottomed… I think that it is a terrific stock here… I say, all aboard… and I do not need to have a takeover to have it happen… it just seems to be all coming together for Sprint… whether it be 4G or prepaid… that stock has got it going."

Citigroup (C): "Alright, listen sport... everybody asks me about Citi… Here is the thing... I liked it at $5, I liked it at $4, I like it at $3... unfortunately, the Federal Government has been selling the heck out of it… and we do not have financial regulation.. I am buying it down… I suggest that you buy it down on a scale… $4, $3.75, $3.50 … could it go there? This U.S. government is selling anything that is not nailed down… you bet it can."

Electronic Arts (ERTS): "Yes I do notice that ERTS has disappointed several times and it still will not go below $17... here is the thing, it has a lot of cash… it has that Playfish social media gaming which is going to be huge…I just say that you have to stick with ERTS… nothing happening big… but I like the action."

Bearish Calls:

Yanzhou Coal Mining (YZC): "Sell, sell, sell!… We are not recommending any Chinese stock on this show…"
