Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Monday February 26. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

GlobalSantaFe (NYSE:GSF): ' I like GSF.'
Transocean (NYSE:RIG): 'I like RIG.'
McDonald's (NYSE:MCD): 'What's not to like? You know MCD is my favorite. Now, it is true that my friend Danny Meyer did indicate that McDonald's is kind of like a filling station... but it's a darn clean filling station and, really, honestly... is there anyone in the world that doesn't like their fries?... '
Moody's (NYSE:MCO): 'Well I did have a sense that they [Credit Suisse downgraded] were a combination Zuukoff-Stalin, when they were doing that kind of communist downgrade. Here's the deal: I think that MCO is not as good as MHP.'
McGraw Hill (MHP): 'I like MHP, because it's got a more diversified business. So I support the idea of MCO, but not as much as MHP.'
Greif (NYSE:GEF): 'I think that this is the company that looks so much like it could be taken out in a private equity deal. It's got the plastic, fiber, corrugate... basic American commodity plays... but, I can't recommend that at its 52-week high ... You need a pullback, before you can back the truck up.'
Halliburton (NYSE:HAL): 'HAL announces what is the equivalent of the giant buyback that I've been looking for. I just had to point that out...'
China Mobile (NYSE:CHL): 'You should be going into CHL - the only Chinese stock I recommend on this show.'
Time Warner (NYSE:TWX): ' Incredibly undervalued ... I still think it goes to $25.'
Chemical & Mining Company of Chile (NYSE:SQM): ' ... even in the $140s -SQM is a better fertilizer stock [than TRA].'

Bearish calls:

Alvarion (NASDAQ:ALVR): 'This is an Israeli WiMax play, that I think is too tied into the whole cell phone morass... I want you in my McCaw play [which will be traded as CLWR], not in ALVR...'
Boston Scientific (NYSE:BSX): 'At $18 and change, we hit the 'sell block' on that... we said we don't want to be greedy, we said get out. Here it is at $16 and change. I'm warming up, but I am not ready to pull the trigger. I say 'don't buy, don't buy...'
Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL): 'This one is so well run. It is just light years from the BPs... from the Royal Dutches ... I believe that the better buys right now - and I'm saying ring the register - are in the oil drillers. I like GSF and I like RIG.'
Netscout Systems (NASDAQ:NTCT): 'NTCT is not my favorite here. I'd rather see you in a kind of software/hardware play.'
Qiao Xing Universal Telephone (XING): 'Your stock should be sold. You should be going into CHL - the only Chinese stock I recommend on this show.'
Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO): 'You know, three guys have now upgraded KO and the stock's not moving. I'm putting it in the 'don't buy' camp. Don't buy, don't buy.'
Terra Industries (TRA)
