by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the lightning round of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Monday March 2.

No Bullish Calls

Bearish Calls:

Taiwan Semiconductor (NYSE:TSM): "No, no, no, and no… I am recommending no semi-conductor companies on this show… the industry is in complete retraction… it is back to the way it was in the 1990s."

SanDisk Corp (SNDK): "…the flash memory companies…everyone of those is a sell."

Eli Lilly (NYSE:LLY): "I think the government is taking aim at big pharma…which is why I am no longer recommending any big pharma that doesn’t have a lot of growth… that is a brutal change for me… necessitated by Obama’s horrible budget."

Autodesk, Inc. (ADSK): "I don’t have any reason to recommend Autodesk… I don’t see any real momentum… I don’t see any earnings that make me want to be in it… I want to sell, sell, sell Autodesk."

Tenaris (NYSE:TS): "Without a doubt one of the great companies, so let’s put that out there… but it makes piping that we need for drilling… and I think the Obama plan has destroyed what wasn’t destroyed by the decline in oil pricing."
