by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Thursday May 19.

Bullish Calls:

First Niagara (NASDAQ:FNFG), BB&T (NYSE:BBT): "'I don't want to recommend either one on a takeover basis. FNFG is expanding terrifically in Philadelphia. I want to stick by FNFG and BBT...but I still don't like the bank stocks. Too much pressure from the government. So be very careful."

Nordic American Tanker (NYSE:NAT): "If you have to own a tanker stock...then you want to be in NAT. It yields 5% and that dividend can go higher. I like that stock only if you want a tanker stock."

Bearish Calls:

LDK Solar (NYSE:LDK): " can't...please, please, don't be in that stock. That is a bad stock. They are having financial issues."
