Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Tuesday February 8.

Bullish Calls

Salesforce (NYSE:CRM), VMware (NYSE:VMW), F5 Networks (NASDAQ:FFIV): "Look, everyone is worried about the quarter... this is a very high-flying stock. It's up huge. Marc Benioff [CEO] has come on the show repeatedly. I think this is a great story on the cloud, the technology that allows you to download software. I think the quarter is going to be good. I am going to recommend the stock. I'm not backing away from CRM even though people are worried that F5 Networks reported a quarter people didn't like and VMware reported a quarter people didn't like, even though VMW is back to where it was, even above where it was when it reported."

Resolute Energy (NYSE:REN), Ultra Petroleum (NYSE:UPL): "I think it is a good situation. I prefer Ultra because they are more seasoned, but they are more natural gas. Oil is the way to go. I think that is a good situation...it has had its high but oil is just a few dollars off its high."

iShares Silver Trust (NYSEARCA:SLV): "I like silver as an industrial play, but I've been recommending only the iShares Silver Trust, which tracks silver. I think it is a much better way to play silver than the possibility that a mine has a problem, and so many mines have been so, so difficult. I think mine is a safer play."

Huntington Bancshares (NASDAQ:HBAN), First Horizon (NYSE:FHN): "I would rather see you in Huntington Bancshares. They are stalled at the $7.50 level, but I think it can go to $10. They are getting rid of their bad loans faster than anybody. I also like First Horizon if you want to be in that Southern region. [The CEO of] First Horizon came on [Mad Money] and told a very good story. I think those two are better than Synovus."

Bearish Calls

Silvercorp Metals (NYSE:SVM), iShares Silver Trust (SLV): "I've been recommending only the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) which tracks silver. I think it is a much better way to play silver than the possibility that a mine has a problem, and so many mines have been so, so difficult. I think mine is a safer play."

Synovus Financial (NYSE:SNV): "Too speculative to me. You see a stock at $2.80 you think "what can you lose?""
