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" Friday evening.

Alpha Natural Resources (ANR): "It's just too low. It's ridiculous. It's crazy. I'd be a buyer."

Westar Energy (WR): "That is terrific. I think the yield is safe. Westar is fantastic."

Public Service Enterprise (PEG): "I think it's terrific. I write them a check every month, along with FirstEnergy (FE). Both are terrific investments."

Tesla Motors (TSLA): "The Chevy Volt is selling very poorly. I say don't buy, it's still too risky. "

Polypore (PPO): "The stock is down too much. I want to buy PPO right here."

Energy Transfer Partners (ETP): "The stock is down and everyone is freaking out. I think the yield is safe and the company is good. Propane is bad, but they have other things as well."

Citigroup (C): "No. I'm not recommending any financials under we see a resolution in Europe."

PerkinElmer (PKI): "They have killed this stock. They get grants from the government and I want to see them on the show before I say pull the trigger."
