Miriam Metzinger submits: Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Monday April 23. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

Syneron Medical (NASDAQ:ELOS): 'I am going to reiterate ELOS, even as I think that PMTI has come down a lot, ELOS has the best future ahead of it.'
FuelCell Energy (NASDAQ:FCEL)
Avnet (NYSE:AVT): 'I'm going to send you to AVT.'
Chemed (NYSE:CHE): 'So, why don't I send you to CHE, which is still 9 points off its high. Also does the hospitality business... has Roto-Rooter, and a hospice.'
Gorman-Rupp (NYSEMKT:GRC): 'I like GRC...I'm giving it a thumb and a half up to GRC - two thumbs and a half up...
Onyx Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ONXX): 'This is a stock that, even when it went up to $20, I wanted to buy... I think, at $27, it's still a buy.'
Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT): ' Is there a day when LMT does not have a negative article written about it, about some contract that it has, and they can't keep that stock down... The reason is, that they are bulletproof. No matter how much they screw up, they keep going higher. That's my kind of stock.'
Ceradyne (CRDN)
Hercules Offshore (NASDAQ:HERO): 'I think HERO was mispriced and you should be buying that. I am looking at re-valuing the drillers, given the fact that the rig count on Friday hit the highest it's been in years. I think HERO is a buy!'
Hornbeck Offshore (NYSE:HOS): 'I have been upgrading slowly but surely most of the domestic drillers. I'll add HOS to the list. I think that this group has bottomed.'
Six Flags (NYSE:SIX): 'Hey, listen, ahead of a good summer, I would ... I think SIX is inexpensive. It's like a call option on a decent summer. I say yes to Shapiro and I say yes to SIX!'
Electronic Arts (ERTS): 'I think you've got to own ERTS. I think it's a good long-term stock. Is it going to go up tomorrow? Not necessarily, but I think the franchises are in tact.'
Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS)
Expedia (NASDAQ:EXPE): 'If you like that game, I suggest you be in EXPE.'
NewsCorp (NASDAQ:NWS): 'I think NWS is inexpensive. I think it is well-run. I think I'm going to get fired for saying it's anything more than 'good...'

Bearish calls:

Palomar Medical Technologies (NASDAQ:PMTI)
Headwaters (NYSE:HW): 'We think that there's more hype, and more hope, and less money!'
Ecolab (NYSE:ECL): 'I like ECL, which does hospitality service, but the stock's had a big run.'
Plexus (NASDAQ:PLXS): 'Oh c'mon, my friend. We have got to get out of the cellar-dwelling.'
Novastar Financial (NFI): 'Man is this ever a tough one. I've got to tell you, this NFI, if it doesn't go belly up, it's going to go much higher ... It yields 81%. Now we know that ain't right, so they've got to cut that dividend. When they do, you're going to get hit. So, let's remember, be nimble, and only play this one on paper, in the NBC contest.'
Pentair (NYSE:PNR)
Simcere Pharmaceutical (NYSE:SCR): 'I can't get in bed with this stock. It's just too dangerous for me. Sell, sell, sell. I want to ring the register and take the gain ... I am not a China fan.'
Take-Two Interactive (NASDAQ:TTWO)
Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC): ' thought WFC delivered a great quarter but, once again, that stock sells at 14x earnings.'
Travelzoo (NASDAQ:TZOO): ' Now TZOO will now make me look like an idiot by being good, but EXPE is better.'
