Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Thursday January 4. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS): 'I am going to send you to the lowest multiple stock in the group, which also happens to be the best. I am going to send you, once again, to GS.'
Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE): 'I recommended ADBE right here at $40. It's been stalled. That's ADBE's fault, not mine. The stock is about to ramp. It's one of the few tech stocks that is still below where it reported its quarter. I'm giving it two thumbs up, way up.'
DivX (DIVX): 'Yesterday, it hit $21. Is that right? Frankly, it's not going to be the gold standard. I think this... If it goes back to $21, (pull the trigger to buy it...), but only if it goes back to $21.'
Stryker (NYSE:SYK): 'This whole group is en fuego ... SYK is ... the sweet spot for this particular market, because they are going to be able to keep raising prices... This is the baby boomers play for bones.'
Coldwater Creek (NASDAQ:CWTR): 'Stuck at $24 until we see the quarter. I like that. It feels coiled spring to me.'

Bearish calls:

TD Ameritrade (NYSE:AMTD): 'It does seem like a coiled spring, doesn't it? ... even though I like AMTD - ... I am going to send you to GS.'
Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO): 'You know what? There's no buyout. As a matter of fact, I would sell it before Sue Decker opens her mouth and pre-announces to the downside once again.'
Valero Energy (NYSE:VLO): 'My take: The stock could go as low as $47. Only then would I sanction (sound effect: pulling the trigger - a buy). '
Rentech (NASDAQ:RTK): 'When the Saudis, and the rest of the OPEC-kers decided to get together, and keep oil all the way down, under $60, what happened is the (buzzer sounds) - RTK is an alternative energy play ... If oil goes to $50, RTK goes to $2.'
Allscripts Healthcare Solutions (NASDAQ:MDRX): 'We liked the stock at $14. At $27, it's all Johnny come lately. I say no can do. Let's make some sales.'
Alcatel Lucent (NYSE:ALU): 'I'm pre-disposed to be a bear, because the management there - Patricia Russo from Lucent - really hurt me. But, you know what? I am hearing the quarter's good. I am hearing that the business is coming back, so I'm giving it a tepid one thumb up, taking it out of the sell, sell, sell category and landing it into the don't buy, don't buy.'
