'Mad Money Lightning Round': BP Riding High

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:

BP (BP - Get Report): "I think their CEO is doing a magnificent job and the dividend is safe. I want to buy BP right here."

H&R Block (HRB - Get Report): "The economy is so weak, people didn't pay to have their taxes done, so H&R had weak quarter. I don't want you to sell it here, but it is a seasonal play."

Capital One Financial (COF): "Capital One is a dicey stock and is too speculative for me. There are other banks I regard as less expensive."

Becton Dickinson (BDX - Get Report): "This has been a one-way fare lower. It's a quality company that's just getting throw away. I don't expect it to do anything, but I want you to wait for higher prices before you sell."

Huntington Bancshares (HBAN - Get Report): "I simply don't like it. They've made too many mistakes and they might not pass the stress test. They don't pass my stress test."

Cisco Systems (CSCO - Get Report): "This is part of the altar of momentum people are worshipping here. Wait for a pullback before you get in. I think they're still buys."

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR - Get Report): "This is clearly a short squeeze. Let's not be greedy and take a little off the table."

Aracruz Celulose S.A (ARA): "If that dividend can be maintained, I'd be a buyer, but I can't get my arms around it right now. "
