by: Miriam Metzinger

Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Monday November 27. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN):'If you are a speculator about energy prices; if you want to have a sure play if oil's going back to $70; perhaps even a stock that could go up 20 points, it's DVN! Because that's got the best record of finding oil and natural gas in this country. It's two thumbs up for those who like oil. '
Halliburton (NYSE:HAL): 'If I am going to go into that oil service sector, I am going to retreat to the one that I own for my charitable trust. I am going to go to King HAL.'
Verizon (NYSE:VZ): 'A lot of people don't like that investment ... (VZ) can pay a bountiful dividend. You get 4.74%. It was a decent quarter. You don't get a lot of growth there, but you get a decent yield, which is well taxed, and some upside down the road.'
Waste Management (WMI): 'It's just a good business cycle play, and it's not expensive at $26. I like WMI. I'm giving it two thumbs up.'
Panera Bread (NASDAQ:PNRA): 'Here's the problem: PNRA is a high-growth stock, like SBUX. Those are the ones that are going to be hit worse in this kind of selloff. But I am not backing away from liking PNRA. As a matter of fact (Bull Sound)... that's my call on PNRA, but only one thumb up, because it's not delivering the numbers I'd like to see.'
Trump Entertainment (TRMP): 'Mr. Trump is, I think, going to get that December decision in favor of TRMP getting the slots. Now he is up against some pretty tough competition ... But I still think that there is so much firepower in TRMP ... I am sticking by my TRMP going to $25-26 in a heartbeat.'
Lundin Mining (LMC): 'If you want to be a minerals, I need you to be in LMC.'
Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX): 'Let SBUX come in ... You know that I don't think that those numbers short term really matter, because this is a China play ... I do not care about short-term fluctuations. When this stock gets to $32-33, we are backing up the truck.'
Walter Industries (NYSE:WLT): 'Too cheap! Too cheap! Too cheap! ... you get an unbelievable coal company. I mean, what's the deal here? Steel too! I think this one's way too cheap; so cheap that I used it in Jim Cramer's Mad Money: Watch TV and Get Rich as the ultimate value stock. And I'm not backing away.'
Level 3 Communications (NASDAQ:LVLT): 'The stock is going down. Lots of people panicking; lots of people thinking Cramer's all washed up on the LVLT, that he should have taken the profit up 25%. No way. LVLT is the single best play on the shortage of bandwidth. I still think this stock could double ... in a couple of years ... Why not back up the truck. LVLT - two thumbs up, way up!'

Bearish calls:

Helmerich & Payne (NYSE:HP): ' I think HP is just too dicey, and the group is very hated right now.'
Alcoa (NYSE:AA): 'No. We are doing a triple sell on AA. I really feel that what's the matter with AA is that, even though they do restructuring, after restructuring, after restructuring, they can't get it right. And the price of aluminum - not helping them.'
