'Mad Money Lightning Round': Ring Up Verizon

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" Thursday evening:

Verizon (VZ): "People regard this too cautious and safe. I'd used the flatlining to pick some up. I want to buy, buy, buy."

CV Therapeutics (CVTX): "That deal is done, I want you to sell that one. It's time to move on to the next deal."

Denbury Resources (DNR): "I think Denbury is an inexpensive mineral company. I'm a buyer, that one used to be twice as high."

Douglas Emmett (DEI): "No, commercial real estate is not my thing. I do not like DEI."

Monsanto (MON): "I think this is the best of the group, except for Terra Nitrogen (TNH) with the great dividend. Monsanto is my number two pick in that group."

Mohawk Industries (MHK): "These are all functions of housing coming back. I think housing is going higher, although I don't want to buy this one up here. " (SOHU): "I love the Chinese economy, but I don't like their stocks. I'd rather own Google ."

Foster Wheeler (FWLT): "I took some profits today for my trust, but I still keep a substantial position."

MetLife (MET): "Let me go through the pecking order. I like Travelers Companies (TRV) first, then Chubb Corp (CB), MetLife third, then AFLAC in that order."

Caterpillar (CAT): "I'm mad at myself for not pulling the trigger. I was worried about the dividend and I screwed up. Let's wait for a pullback, then buy some."
