Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Monday April 7.

Bullish Calls:

  • Ecolab (NYSE:ECL): "You've got a really good stock there. It is a plain old maintenance hospitality business. I love it, and I have always loved it."
  • Encana (NYSE:ECA): "It is going up here. It hit a 52 week high, but it's got where to go. Natural gas prices are going up."
  • Kindred Biosciences (NASDAQ:KIN): "This company is doing quite well. This is a clinical stage biotech, but it is in the pet segment, so it is a good idea. Good spec."
  • Radian (NYSE:RDN), Genworth (NYSE:GNW): "I like Radian, and I prefer Genworth (to MGIC Investment Group). I think they represent better value."
  • Royal Bank of Scotland (NYSE:RBS), Banco Santander (NYSE:SAN): "RBS has stalled here, but I like the breakup value. It is good. Banco Santander is even better."

Bearish Calls:

  • Diana Shipping (NYSE:DSX): "I've gotten lukewarm, because the Baltic Dry Freight Index has fallen."
  • MGIC Investment Group (NYSE:MTG): Cramer prefers Radian and Genworth.
