Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Thursday March 22. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

FedEx (NYSE:FDX): 'Now, this number wasn't that great, and the commentary wasn't that great but, you know what? I still think that FDX is a company worth owning long term, because it does not have a multiple on its growth rate, and because the management is superior to everyone else in the industry...'
Bear Stearns (NYSE:BSC): 'You're still down 20 points from the high. Jimmy Kane is a great CEO... BSC... sells at a ridiculously low multiple to book. How can people not understand that this man knows the mortgage market nine ways to Sunday, and yet they still try to slam it. They're wrong ... that stock goes higher. I say 'all aboard!'
Flow International (NASDAQ:FLOW-OLD): 'FLOW is the best in show. Ultra-high water pressure, water jet... I think FLOW goes higher.'
XTO Energy (XTO): ' ... you move into my favorite, XTO!... 52-week high.'
Dean Foods (NYSE:DF): 'I think the world of DF... I believe that you get long, you get that dividend, and then the stock goes right back up. DF - pull the trigger right now, ahead of the dividend! I want people in D.'
Clearwire (CLWR): 'I am telling people to buy more CLWR... I have tremendous, tremendous faith in the management. And, if they hadn't priced it [the IPO] so darn high, I think we'd already be making money on the darn thing. So I say stick with it.'
Nastech Pharmaceutical (NSTK): ' ... go into that NSTK. They have got a better chance of hitting it out of the park...'
Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG): ' ... the highest hospitality quotient of any company I deal with...'
Heinz (HNZ): ' ... offering you both capital appreciation and capital protection Two thumbs up for HNZ. It's a reinvented company with 200 new products. HNZ rocks!'
Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN): 'There'll be a selloff in the market, and you'll be able to buy GRMN cheaper than it is... I happen to like the stock, but I'm not paying $55 for it... It's too high. I like it. Let's be patient.'
Mosiac company (NYSE:MOS): 'The way you buy a MOS is you wait for a big selloff. MOS happens to be my favorite fertilizer company. MOS can go back to $25 in a pullback and, only then do I advise that you pull the trigger!'
Crown Castle (NYSE:CCI): 'CCI's my favorite; that's best of breed.'
SBA COM (NASDAQ:SBAC): 'SBAC is a good stock too.'

Bearish calls:

Usana Health Sciences (NYSE:USNA): 'I wouldn't want to own USNA... '
Cabot Oil & Gas (NYSE:COG): 'COG is a really good company ... You've had a big run in COG. You ring the register, and you move into my favorite, XTO!... 52-week high.'
People's Bank (NASDAQ:PBCT): 'This is actually a tough one ... even though I know it's a well-run bank, I am going to have to put yours in the 'don't buy, don't buy' camp.'
Empire Resorts (NASDAQ:NYNY): ' ... I am saying don't buy, don't buy, to NYNY.'
Fuel Tech (NASDAQ:FTEK): 'I believe in this company, but I cannot get behind a company that sells at a 90x multiple. It's too rich for me.'
Applebee's (APPB): 'I think APPB is going to be put for sale ... But, you know what? APPB is not that great a company ... swap out of APPB, and get into CMG.'
Acadia Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ACAD): ' that is a dice-roll company - I am going to say ix-nay on the ACAD.'
SBA COMM (SBAC): ' I like CCI more, but your SBAC is a good stock too.'
