Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV program, Friday March 11.

Bullish Calls:

Huntington Bancshares (NASDAQ:HBAN): "I still think you should stick with it... the banks are just okay ...this stock has pulled back enough that I think it is a buy, and I would buy it in the $6 range any day of the week."

Northern Oil and Gas (NYSEMKT:NOG): "I like that of my absolute favorites.. I like that group... that is just dynamite as far as I'm concerned."

Mercury General Corp (NYSE:MCY), The Travelers Companies (NYSE:TRV): "Mercury insurance... that is a terrific company with a terrific yield...I prefer Travelers when it comes to day to day...Mercury is not my favorite, but I like that yield ....that yield is safe."

Bearish Calls:

Motricity (MOTR): "That was the worst conference call of the year so far... I have to cut my losses in this thing because they told a really negative story, but at $12, it is just too inexpensive.... it is not like the company is losing money hand over fist or anything. They weren't able to translate the dumb phone domestic into the smart phone international fast enough."

Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO): "52 week low...seems to have lost its way...I would absolutely love to hear something otherwise...I would say bow-wow chateau (i.e. doghouse)."

Avis (NASDAQ:CAR): "Not bad....I think that is all I can really say about it."
