by: Miriam Metzinger

Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Thursday April 5. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG): 'I want the money shifted over to CELG.'
Level 3 Communications (NASDAQ:LVLT): 'I want to pull the trigger on this. This stock has had a tremendous run. When stocks have tremendous runs, of course they come in ... It's one of these stocks that is using the incredibly low rates - 4.67% on the 10-year today... And they are refinancing, they are issuing equity instead of debt... I'm telling you to back up the truck at $6 smackers.'
First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR): 'It's the hottest, it's the best, and it's FSLR, because it does not need a handout from the great United States of America, in order to make the numbers.'
Saks (NYSE:SKS): 'even though they lost their CFO, I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt! I would buy the stock.'
J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP)
Polo Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL)
Inergy (NRGY): 'This is one of those very high-yielding ... propane wholesale distribution business, which is a fabulous business, and generates a huge amount of cash flow... '
American Tower (NYSE:AMT): 'The tower industry is in bull-market mode for so long - longer than this show's been on. I reiterate my buy on AMT. And everybody who wants to see a great cashflow business, look at the cell phone tower business.'
Vaalco Energy (NYSE:EGY): 'It's pulled back to $5. I think people feel it's too risky. At $5 bucks, I like it. This is speculative ... I want to be very careful.'
Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM):
Transocean (NYSE:RIG):
GlobalSantaFe (NYSE:GSF)
ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP): 'I haven't liked it, but versus the others, it's got to be bought right here. Buy, buy, buy!'
Qwest Communications (NYSE:Q): 'Dick Notebart is doing an unbelievable job. That stock just blew through $9. They got the gigantic federal contract. I think Q is going to $10, not in a heartbeat, but pretty darn soon.'
American Ecology (NASDAQ:ECOL): 'We've liked that stock very much. I like the dividend too. I want to stick with that.'

Bearish calls:

Geron (NASDAQ:GERN): 'No, no. Way too speculative for me. Why buy a risky stock like GERN, when CELG has got less risk and more reward?...'
FuelCell Energy (NASDAQ:FCEL): 'You know I'm not a fan.'
Acadia Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ACAD): 'This is one of those - they already priced the deal.'
Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG): 'I am concerned. Don't buy, don't buy. I've got to do more work. Maybe I am wrong, and that HOG could go still lower.'
Walgreen (WAG): 'WAG is a consistent, slow-grower ... 'don't buy, don't buy' until I see whether WAG does indeed pull the trigger on Express Scripts.'
Energy Partners (NYSE:EPL):: 'I am strictly in the sell, sell, sell mode.'
Monster Worldwide (NASDAQ:MNST): 'I was very let down by the MNST numbers. That was a clear and utter miss!'
