Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round segment of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Monday August 11.

Bullish Calls:

  • Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET): "I'm surprised it went down. I do like ANET."
  • StoneMor Partners (NYSE:STON): "I don't understand why it yields 10%. That would usually be a red flag, but I like StoneMor."
  • Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP): "We gave up too quickly on ETP. It is a buy."
  • Fiesta Restaurant Group (NASDAQ:FRGI): Cramer prefers FRGI to El Pollo Loco.
  • Trinity (NYSE:TRN): "It is a big beneficiary of recent railcar news and the stock has come down a lot. It should be bought."
  • Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD): "We don't usually like to buy them when we've run like this. But this is one of my Four Horsemen of the Biotech Apocalypse. I do like it long term.

Bearish Call:
