Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Friday, August 1.

Bullish Calls: 

Apache (NYSE:APA) -- “I like Apache. I think natural gas is the fuel of the future. Don’t sell it. This company is growing.”

Graham (NYSE:GHM) -- “This company is a classic new tech company. They are doing better than Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and Eaton (NYSE:ETN). Stay on this one.”

Entergy (NYSE:ETR) -- “This is a very good cheap power generator. I like it but I like Exelon (NYSE:EXC) more and I like Consolidated Edison (NYSE:ED) the most because of the dividend.”

Pride International (NYSE:PDE) -- “There is so much drilling going on that the contract drilling is terrific. I want to buy it.”

Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) -- “This is a great first pick. The quarter was good. The business is on fire and it is a weak dollar play too.” 

Bearish Calls: 

KeyCorp (NYSE:KEY) -- “This is a particularly bad bank but a rising tide lifts all banks. They have not acquitted themselves well. I don’t want to own them. They don’t deserve to be owned.”

Harte-Hanks (NYSE:HHS) -- “This is a tough business. I think advertising budgets are being cut back and that will affect it.”
