Stocks discussed in the lightning round session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Friday December 7. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Bullish calls:

Under Armour (NYSE:UA): ‘I think UA, the longer it stays here, is getting interesting,’
VF Corp (NYSE:VFC): VF Corp. is even more interesting [than UA]. North Face [brand put out by VFC] can't be stopped in this country! VFC, 52-week low, 3% yield... that's your play! But, buy, buy!’
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): ‘I still like AAPL very much.’
Masimo (NASDAQ:MASI): .’My friend, Dan Fitzpatrick... is saying it's the single best chart in the book. I don't know charts... I know the fundamentals of the business, and they are strong!’
Stryker (NYSE:SYK): ‘That is a great stock. I don't care that it's near its 52-week high. I would still buy, buy, buy! Great call.’
Genentech (DNA): ‘At this level, I can't sell it anymore… I thought the Avastin decision was wrong. There were only a couple of cancer doctors on that panel…Europe uses the product. I think, ultimately, Avastin succeeds. So, down here, I am going to go with the bulls and say that DNA must be bought.’
CVS Caremark (NYSE:CVS): ‘I've got CVS which also has that great back-end business - pharmacy, benefit, management.’
Rite Aid (NYSE:RAD): ‘Mary Sammons may be pardoned! Yes! Rite Aid turning back. RAD had a pretty good month. It was up nicely today. And yes, I'm sticking with RAD!’
Citigroup (NYSE:C): ‘If we get a new CEO in there, we're going to get something cooking... I don't want to leave that stock down here, no way, no how...’
Reliance Steel (NYSE:RS)
Research In Motion (RIMM)
ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP): ‘I happen to like ConocoPhillips more [than Exxon].’
Exxon(NYSE:XOM): ‘Look, I'm never going to go against XOM.’
Bearish calls:
Walgreen (WAG): ‘No, no, no, no, no, no! Sell, sell, sell!’
China Precision Steel (NASDAQ:CPSL)
E*Trade (NASDAQ:ETFC): ‘I apologize to anyone who ever bought the stock from me, because I was consistently bagged by management’
DivX (DIVX): ‘Yeah, you know, we nailed this one when we did our IPO show, and then we took it off the table…We've lost a lot of money recommending video compression stocks ever since then… I'm not going to resurrect DIVX.’
