by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money TV Program, Wednesday March 14.

Bullish Calls:

CVS Caremark (NYSE:CVS): "Someone downgraded it...I think that is nuts. I do not want to sell this stock, I want to buy this stock."

Ecolab (NYSE:ECL): "...strong quarter. It should raise the dividend...terrific situation."

Philip Morris (NYSE:PM): "If it would just go down, it would be a buy, buy, buy, but it never seems to drop."

Paccar (NASDAQ:PCAR), Cummins (NYSE:CMI): "Paccar is good, Cummins is great..."

Annaly (NYSE:NLY): "I prefer NLY (to American Capital Agency.)"

Ameresco (NYSE:AMRC): "It's still inexpensive. Take some off the table, but it is a good situation."

Exelon (NYSE:EXC): "No one really likes EXC here. I think it is a legitimate, terrific situation. We should buy the stock."

Whole Foods (WFM): " now, and when it goes below $80, buy some is one of our favorite stocks."

Bearish Calls:

Dendreon (NASDAQ:DNDN): "I'm going to say don't buy...but this Johnson & Johnson deal is going to be toxic for them."

American Capital Agency (NASDAQ:AGNC): "AGNC is fine, but I don't push is hard to analyze. That is the problem."

Bank of America (NYSE:BAC): "... is a terrible subject. I blew it...I thought it was a good stock. I got it completely wrong. I can't look back...there are other good banks. What can I say about BAC? I didn't get it right."
