Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Tuesday April 12.

Bullish Calls:

Ford (NYSE:F): "I like Ford. It has been marking time at $14. People don't believe in it. I'm a believer in America. I'm a believer in Alan Mulally. I think it is a good level. I has a great run, and now it is just consolidating."

Ciena (NASDAQ:CIEN): "I like Ciena better (than Alcatel-Lucent.)"

Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE:CLF): "...has pulled back 10. That is where I like to buy. That has been a big winner for us. This not rare metals. In fact, it is iron ore...Japan will be rebuilding... and China is almost done tightening, and that is why you should be buying CLF."

Bearish Calls:

Alcatel-Lucent (ALU), Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO): "I cannot be bullish. That has gone up really big while others in that cohort are struggling. I put ALU in the same boat as Cisco...it is not really moving here."

F5 Networks (NASDAQ:FFIV): "I do not like F5 as much as I like many other tech stocks, and so I would tell you any movement on F5 is a chance to sell... It is too risky...until we see two good quarters from them, and that day has not come yet."
