'Mad Money Lightning Round': Get in PPL Corp

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






NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks that callers offered up during the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Monday evening.

Johnson Controls (JCI): "I think it's all good, but I sold it for my charitable trust. It's in too many businesses that are levered to autos, so I'm going to say sell, sell, sell until $33 or $34."

PPL Corp (PPL): "I think PPL is an excellent buy right here. I'd buy half now and buy the other half if it comes down even more."

Vera Bradley (VRA): "I think that Vera should be sold. You've had a nice run and I think it's time to move on."

Heckmann (HEK): "I like the water sector. I'm not backing away, I think it's a good buy."

Bank of America (BAC): "No chance of this one going bankrupt. The banks are still a free-fire zone though, so it's not right to get back in yet."

Alcatel Lucent (ALU): "No. It's had a big run but it's still a second rate player. I don't want to be in that business."

Boise (BZ): "This one looks a lot like Temple-Inland (TIN), which got a bid today. So much so that it might see a pop from this. If that happens, I'd ring the register."
