by: Miriam Metzinger

Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Thursday February 8. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE:ADM): 'ADM has done nothing since that beautiful, magnifico quarter. For every two shares of AVR, you go buy one ADM.'
Acme Packet (NASDAQ:APKT): 'You are onto it .... 'APKT is a situation where I think that you - if it gets back to where it was this morning in that brief moment - you have to back up the truck.'
Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR): 'WHR had run from $82 to $94. I think that WHR is going to hit it big. It had a very big acquisition with Maytag. It hasn't all worked out yet. It will work out.'
ValueClick (VCLK): ''I am an old dot-commer from way back... and VCLK is one of the survivors that has done remarkable things on the web. This is a company that does advertising solutions for companies that need to be on the web ... great quarter. Great numbers. $26 goes higher. Management is continually beating estimates.'
Vulcan Materials (NYSE:VMC): 'Now, that stock has been on a tear. But, you know what? We're not done. We liked it in the 70s - we like it to $140. I see 30 more points. It is cheap still, and we've still got a lot of highways that need aggregate.'
MasterCard (NYSE:MA): 'The stock is up gigunda ahead of this quarter. I mean gigunda. Up another 2 smackers today - one of my best picks ever ... I still think their going to blow the numbers away! I don't think that MA is done.'
Corning (NYSE:GLW): 'Ever since that quarter, where diesel engines were good, where fiber's coming back, where big-screen TV inventories have been worked off; I have said to buy GLW, and I'm reiterating it right now!'
EMC (EMC): 'I liked the news today with the spinoff. I'm going bullish right here.'
Melco PBL Entertainment (MPEL): 'It's hurting. I know it's hurting. It's a Macau gambling play. I like it.'

Bearish calls:

Aventine Renewable Energy (AVR): 'My friend, you are barking up the wrong ethanol pick! ... I want you out of AVR - even though it's all the way down - sell, sell, sell! and right now, for every two shares of AVR, you go buy one ADM.'
SAP (NYSE:SAP): 'Holy cow, is that a stinker. Sell, sell, sell! That CEO talked a big game - a good game - but he's involved in a vicious price war with another stock that I don't like, ORCL.'
Oracle (NYSE:ORCL): 'I don't want anything to do with that segment. It is banned on Mad Money! Sell, sell, sell!'
Thor Industries (NYSE:THO): ' Look, there is nothing better than an Airstream ... But! This is not the stock to own at this point in the cycle ... It's an expensive stock. Using a lot of gasoline. No. We're going to stay away ... 'don't buy.'
Tibco Software (NASDAQ:TIBX): 'Controversial. The problem with TIBX is that it's growing at 14%, and it sells at 24x earnings. Limited upside. Don't buy, don't buy.'
