by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Monday December 19.

Bullish Calls:

Intel (NASDAQ:INTC): "...Intel is giving you a 3.6% yield and a big buyback."

Annaly Capital Management (NYSE:NLY): "They cut their yield...the cut in the dividend was smaller than expected...the stock has been under pressure. I reiterate my buy."

Bearish Calls:

Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK): "...natural gas prices are so low, they are going to have to struggle. I like the situation. I think it is terrific. I am appalled at how low natural gas prices are. That is why that is stuck in the mud."

Sprint (NYSE:S): "...they still have to put in so much capital to build themselves up...I don't want to own the common stock."

MEMC (WFR): "There is nothing is solar chips...fossil fuels have come down in price, so there is nothing there."

Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE:CLF), Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO): "These don't have the dividend...we are at sea with these. I don't want you to buy either. I think you wait until the year is over."

Texas Instruments (NYSE:TXN): "I think it is a very slow growth company...I would swap out of TXN and get into INTC."

Telefonica (NYSE:TEF): "No...that dividend is not safe."

Quad Graphics (NYSE:QUAD): "I don't trust that yield. I hate that business."
