Stocks discussed on the lightning round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Wednesday October 20.

Bullish Calls:

Oracle (ORCL): "The stock's going higher. They're doing great with Sun (Microsystems). Mark Hurd's helping out there. You've got Ellison [CEO] making you money there every day. This one is in the sweet spot. Of the old favorites, where we used to have like these big, big tech names that we liked in the '90s, Oracle... Of all the ones, Oracle is the one with the most mojo right here. I would stick with Oracle."

Express Scripts (ESRX): "Alright, I still like it...they help companies save money. That's fine with me. I like that company. I think it's terrific. It remains one of my favorite players."

Agnico-Eagle Mines (AEM), NovaGold (NG), Eldorado (EGO): "I like Agnico-Eagle...I also am doing a lot of work on NovaGold and I like Eldorado Gold."

Macy's (M): "So, while I like Saks okay... if you want just good solid earnings growth, I'm going to send you to Macy's."

Bearish Calls:

Randgold Resources (GOLD): "While I like gold, it is not my favorite vehicle."

Saks (SKS): "Saks? No, that's not a takeover target. That's always been rumored... remember, like some Iceland company was going to buy it. Saks is okay... So, while I like Saks okay... if you want just good solid earnings growth, I'm going to send you to Macy's."
