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" Wednesday evening.

Transocean (RIG - Get Report): "I like it, a little controversial. I do like it but I would prefer the one we do own in the charitable trust , which is Ensco (ESV - Get Report)."

Natural Resource Partners (NRP - Get Report): "A very good coal play, and I happen to like coal very much ... Still want you to wait for a pullback."

Hudson City Bancorp (HCBK - Get Report): "Turned out to be far more controversial than I realized ... If you want a good regional, I suggest First Niagara Financial (FNFG)."

Best Buy (BBY - Get Report): "It's a no-go ... I'd rather see you in (AMZN). If the Fed moves, I see Amazon going to $240."

Illumina (ILMN - Get Report): "This one is in the sweet spot. It's is a total buy."

Hershey (HSY - Get Report): "I think it can go higher, the company has really decided to focus on pure profitability."

Regions Financial (RF - Get Report): "I say sell. I don't like Regions' management. Point blank."

Qualcomm (QCOM): "I don't like tech but if I had to buy a tech company, it would most likely be Qualcomm."

Hercules Technology (HTGC): "I haven't done the work on this one. Have to take a pass."
