Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Thursday May 22.

Bullish Calls:

  • Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), Vipshop Holdings (NYSE:VIPS): "I like Baidu, Alibaba when it comes public and Vipshop. Those are my 3 Chinese stocks for 2014."
  • HCA Holdings (NYSE:HCA): "HCA is incredibly well-run. It has been a great deal for everyone involved. This one works."
  • Randgold (NASDAQ:GOLD): "The only gold miner I've been recommending is Randgold. Randgold is still good."
  • The Royal Bank of Scotland (NYSE:RBS): "I'd rather buy The Royal Bank of Scotland (than the Bank of Ireland). It's percolating, and I think it is a good one."
  • Valero (NYSE:VLO): "I like the spread between different grades of crude. I remain a buyer and believer in Valero. It is a really good company that returns capital to shareholders."

Bearish Calls:

  • Bank of Ireland (NYSE:IRE): Cramer prefers The Royal Bank of Scotland.
  • Kinross Gold (NYSE:KGC): "I am not a Kinross guy."
  • China XD Plastics (NASDAQ:CXDC): "Is a red flag, but I have to do more work on that (and it is not one of the Chinese stocks Cramer is recommending)."
  • Jabil Circuit (NYSE:JBL): "I gave up on them. You can only miss so many quarters ... I'm not going to go there. I like low multiple tech, but I have to see a good quarter before I go in there and buy."
