Cramer's 'Mad Money Lightning Round': I Dig Diageo

To see the full "Mad Money" Recap, please click here .

Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks that callers offered up during the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Tuesday evening:

Teco Energy: "I like it, 5% yield."

Goldman Sachs: "Goldman Sachs is just about to ramp. You stay in it."

Usana Health: Cramer prefers Martek Biosciences.

Gaiam: "I don't trust that stock all the way up here. Let's take profits now."

Southern: "A nice, fat, if not Zaftig, 5% yield. ... Don't forget Con Ed."

Votorantim: "I'm sticking with that stock. ... I'm dropping the cynicism. Every penny made in that stock should go to saving the rain forest."

Microsoft: "Every night I self-flagellate because I own Mister Softee. That said, it's probably done going down."

Diageo: "It's got Cuervo, the Captain Morgan , Tanqueray, Bailey's and Guinness. I'm not backing away. Diageo goes to 75."

Sonus: "I'd rather see you in Tellabs. Swap out of the Sonus."

Scientific Games: "Ever since it was added to the mid-caps, it has stalled here. ... I am sticking with it."

Progressive: "I like the insurance business. ... I like Pru and Met more than I like Progressive."

Pioneer Drilling: "One dollar off its 52-week low, that's a travesty." Cramer said that stock should be bought, along with Halliburton, which he owns for his Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust .

Geron: Cramer offered Amgen, Celgene and Gilead instead.

Northern Trust: "We like Citigroup, then we like Bank of America. We do not like Northern Trust because we think it's expensive."

Steve Madden: "Fashion is no longer selling. If I wanted to be in the shoe game, I would rather be in Nike."
