by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed on the Lightning Round session of Jim Cramer's Mad Money Program, Thursday July 26.

Bullish Calls:

Align Technology (NASDAQ:ALGN): "I happen to like the company. It did quite poorly, but now it has come back, and it is terrific."

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): "It reacted badly again today...all I can tell you is that it is an opportunity."

Hershey (NYSE:HSY), Kimberly Clark (NYSE:KMB): "Hershey had a magnificent quarter, and was up another dollar. KMB is a great consumer goods play."

F5 (NASDAQ:FFIV), (NYSE:CRM): "I was surprised there is so much negativity (about FFIV). I prefer It is a better cloud play. I'm willing to stick my neck out and say buy with deep in the money calls."

Bearish Calls:

Select Comfort (SCSS): "These mattress plays are too hard. Don't buy."

LG Display (NYSE:LPL): (Cramer prefers Apple).

Kellogg (NYSE:K): "I think Kellogg is poorly run...K can't seem to do anything right. The last two quarters have been bad. Sell, sell, sell, and don't buy it until it yields 4.5%."
