'Mad Money Lightning Round': Avoid Synaptics

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" Wednesday evening:

Synaptics (SYNA): "I am not a fan of touchscreens. It's too much of a commodity. Stay away from that group."

Methanex (MEOH): "This stock has been so cheap for so long I don't know what to say. I can't get behind it. This group is hard, let's just go with DuPont (DD) or Dow Chemical (DOW)."

Dolan Media (DM): "These are specialized business publications. I liked it when it IPO'd, but I don't like anything media right now."

Tesoro (TSO): "No, no, we're not recommending any refiners right now. The margins are horrible here. They're getting squeezed. You can go with Marathon Oil (MRO) but that's it."

Sirius Satellite Radio (SIRI): "One year and 79 days the FCC has been holding up this merger. Enough is enough; it's an outrage. Sirius should be bought. "

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE): "I was concerned with the quarter, but the number was fine and I say its two thumbs up. WWE rocks."

Akamai Technologies (AKAM): "That's old technology. I'd take profits there and invest in some new tech like Eaton (ETN) and Parker Hannifin (PH) and go where the excitement is."

ONEOK Partners (OKS): "I've always liked that one. That's a good situation. I like these stocks and their yields. "

Spartan Motors (SPAR): "No, no, this is an under-performer. They can't deliver in this environment. I'm sorry."
