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

Bullish calls:

EMC (EMC): 'One of the few tech stocks that I would still buy here. I think it goes to $20. That's how good it is. '
Allegheny Technologies (NYSE:ATI): 'Great quarter! The guys are too bearish. That stock's starting its climb again. I want you on board!'
Volcano (NASDAQ:VOLC): 'I would still buy it ... this is intravascular ultrasound. We have seen so many of these companies just go up - and then rest - and then go up again ... I'm sticking with VOLC. I like that stock very much.'
Cal Dive International (NYSE:DVR): 'Look, marine contracting companies. We like that one.'
Superior Offshore (DEEP): 'Remember, last week we recommended DEEP. That's another one. That hit a 52-week high today. We like these companies.'
Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE:ADM): 'We're going to Archer Daniels Midland...I'd like to do a show at their factory!'
AT&T (NYSE:T): 'I don't want you to worry about a thing with T. People thought that the quarter wasn't that great. That is just wrong ... It went from $35 to $40 in a heartbeat. You are not going to get that to keep moving like that. It is going to take some profits ... T yields 3.6%. The dividend's going to go up. There's a big buyback. You are home free. T is a core portfolio position. '
NVR (NYSE:NVR): ' ... the only homebuilder on the 52-week high list today. It's an $842 stock. Not for the squeamish. We are seeing a lot of short squeezes in the housing business. This isn't a short squeeze. This happens to be a company that's going higher.'
NutriSystem (NASDAQ:NTRI): 'I've got to be more positive on NTRI. I'm blessing it for a trade.'

Bearish calls:

Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ:AKAM): 'AKAM did have a good quarter. The expectations set my people, including me, were too high. And I have hurt people in AKAM by sticking with it. I had a real good double. I got greedy... AKAM, I know, is good at $40. I just don't know whether I can tell you to buy some right here. My bad.'
Marvell Technology (NASDAQ:MRVL): 'This is really important. I own this stock for my charitable trust ... the company - which is being investigated by the SEC - announced that the investigation had turned formal ... I cannot get behind a company that could have this kind of accounting problem.'
Pacific Ethanol (NASDAQ:PEIX): 'Nope. Nope. We have not liked that company from its inception.'
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (NYSE:KKD): 'Not happy that the financial guy left yesterday. What was that all about? I signaled that this was a stock that I wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole'...
Valero Energy (NYSE:VLO): 'I feel like, you know, I told people to sell this stock in the mid-60s. I shouldn't even be able to opine on it. It's obviously doing well. I think it's gone too far. I'm sticking with a 'don't buy, don't buy.'
Ivanhoe Energy (NASDAQ:IVAN): ' No. I have not liked IVAN. I'm too nervous about it, and I don't like the management. I think it should be sold.'
