Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Thursday April 12. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

Sirius Satellite Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI): 'Perhaps someone might want to ask me about SIRI, which I think could just get a bump of 10%, because of some activities in radio...'
Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT): 'I feel that MAT goes higher ... How about this? If you have 200 shares, take off 50, but let that run on a fundamental basis, because it's real good.'
CVS (NYSE:CVS): ' ... they got this Caremark. It's a great move ... CVS - best in show. Really smart. Ended up getting it cheap. I'm not backing away from CVS. No. If anything - down a dollar - I'm pulling the trigger.'
Express Scripts (NASDAQ:ESRX): 'I've been buying ESRX ... Why? Because I think Walgreens has to do a me-too (buy ESRX because CVS bought Caremark).'
Rochester Medical (NASDAQ:ROCM): 'Unbelievably good baby-boomer play. I say stick with it. Do not can it until you get to $30 smackers!'
Zimmer (ZMH)
Allergan (NYSE:AGN)
Color Kinetics (CLRK): 'CLRK makes this really cool lighting system ... I think CLRK is the best-in-show of the lighting group. That's what you want to be in.'
Bank of Nova Scotia (NYSE:BNS): 'BNS? ...They are going to own - I am not kidding - they are going to own the Caribbean. BNS is the best-run bank in Canada.'
Medco Health (NYSE:MHS): 'MHS, down $4 bucks from a high is so fantastic...'
Yamana Gold (NYSE:AUY): 'We're going to go to AUY! Still, after a double, I am still recommending AUY. That's the best in show ('mon-back sound).'
International Securities Exchange (ISE): 'All right, every one of these is a takeover target.'
IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE:ICE): 'I am liking ICE - the Intercontinental Exhange - down $40 from its high.'
Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG): 'The only one in the medical space that's left is ISRG. The stock grows at 35%, It has the ability to go up another 30-40 points. I want to buy ISRG. I like that stock very much.'
Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS): 'Oh, you know I like that company. That is really well-run. I've liked it for 50 points.'
Mueller Water (NYSE:MWA): 'I just got their annual report. I think it looks real good. I've got to tell you, I'm a believer down here in water infrastructure.'

Bearish calls:

US Gold (NYSE:UXG): 'No. No. You know, we're not going to go to Nevada and find a lot of gold anymore. We're going to go to Latin America. We're going to go to South America.'
J2 Global Communications (NASDAQ:JCOM): ' ... this has been a very hard stock for me to get a line on, frankly. I have not understood why it keeps going higher ... 'don't buy, don't buy'
Mannatech (NASDAQ:MTEX): 'Nutritional supplements. A good business, but I have burned people in MATK, so I want to be very careful, and, again, I'm going to have to resort to the 'don't buy' button.'
Smith & Wesson (SWHC): 'I'm sticking with another 'don't buy.'
BB&T (NYSE:BBT): 'No. No. I don't like the regional banks. Sell, sell, sell!'
Valero Energy (NYSE:VLO): 'At $69... At this price, I'm a register ringer. I can't take the pain. I'd rather be in an integrated.'
