Stocks discussed on the lightning round of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Monday May 24.

Bullish Calls:

TJX Companies (NYSE:TJX): "You know I saw the other day where Goldman upgraded Macy’s and took TJX Companies off the list… and I have got to tell you, I did not think that was good logic… I think that TJX is better than Macy’s here...I am going to go against Goldman... buy, buy, buy!"

World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE:WWE): "If you look at the combination of the dividend and the stock, you have got a winner… and I think that is going to stay the same… if we get some growth, that would be terrific… but that dividend philosophy is about the best there is."

Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN): "I am a buyer of Wynn Resorts which I have liked now for a full year… and I am not backing away from it."

Verizon (NYSE:VZ): "I prefer Verizon (to Vodafone). I would hold (Vodafone) and buy Verizon."

Bearish Calls:

Macy's (NYSE:M): "I saw the other day where Goldman upgraded Macy’s and took TJX Companies off the list… and I have got to tell you, I did not think that was good logic… I am going to go against Goldman… I am going to recommend TJX… and say do not buy Macy’s... don't buy, don't buy."

Vodafone Group (NASDAQ:VOD): "I think that it is more of a holder… I do not have a catalyst… I prefer Verizon to it… so I would hold it and maybe buy Verizon."

Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT): "Alright, I have to tell you that I feel that this is still not the accidental high yielder that I want… it is almost 3%… when it gets down to being at 3.5%, then I will like it… it is down more than 12 points from its high… but I do believe that it is still too early… let’s wait a couple of more points… there is no hurry… bat on the shoulder until it gets to 3.5% on the dividend yield."

MGM Mirage (NYSE:MGM): "I think that Vegas has had another downturn, frankly…so I am going to reiterate that I am a seller of MGM... sell, sell, sell!... which has too much debt and too much Vegas."

Hitachi (HIT), Sony (NYSE:SNE): "I saw what they did to Sony… I saw how they took it to pieces… I still think that Japan is a no growth environment… I cannot get behind it… you do not have my blessing to buy more Hitachi… we have got a lot of high quality companies coming down… I do not put that in that camp… no offense to Hitachi… but it is not my cup of tea."
