by: Joan Wickham

Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Friday, October 17.

Bullish Calls:

Cedar Fair (NYSE:FUN) -- "I've recommended this stock before. The numbers were good, I think the dividend is safe, I want to re-recommend it right here.”
Exide Technologies (XIDE) -- “This is a very speculative battery play. It will do well, but only if it gets the technology right.”
Terra Nitrogen (NYSE:TNH) -- "The year of fertilizer is unfortunately done. The only one that's OK is this one, and that's only because of its dividend yield."
Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMP) -- “I'm going to go with the one I've recommended many times already, Kinder Morgan.”
PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) -- “PPG had a remarkable quarter. It blew away the numbers. I can tell you to buy it, but the only thing that will protect you is dividends, so you need DuPont (NYSE:DD)."

Bearish Calls:

DCP Midstream Partners (NYSE:DPM) -- "I'm not overly familiar with this one."
