by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Wednesday May 15.

Bullish Calls:

SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR), First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR): "Solar is turning positive. SunPower has staying power. I like First Solar more. It has true profitability."

PDL BioPharma (NASDAQ:PDLI): "It is a spec, but I like this one."

Ford (NYSE:F): "I think Europe is bottoming. Ford is a buy."

Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.B): "You've got horse sense."

Skyworks (NASDAQ:SWKS): "It is fine. Tech is going to make a comeback. We feel tech has bottomed. Skyworks is not bad."

Marathon Petroleum (NYSE:MPC): "I like that very much. That is the company you can buy and put it away. I think oil is coming back."

TravelCenters (NYSEMKT:TA): "We think that's okay. You've got a good one there."

Bearish calls:

3D Systems (NYSE:DDD): "It is too risky for me. There are so many good stocks in the 3-D business that it worries me you will have a hiccup. You can't chase 3D."

Armour Residential (NYSE:ARR): "This is too hard. I don't like mortgage REITs here. I don't know what the Fed is going to do with interest rates, and no one does either. I'm going to suspend my judgment on those kind of REITs until we get more information from the Fed."
