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:

UPS

: "I know it's been a laggard. ... I think UPS because of the labor problems is gonna be flat-lined at 75."

Beazer Homes

(BZH) - Get Beazer Homes USA, Inc. Report

: "The Beaz man hit a 52-week high. It's the only housing stock on the 52-week-high list. ... I still wouldn't sell it because it's in all hot markets."

UnitedHealth Group

(UNH) - Get UnitedHealth Group Incorporated Report

: "The stock has been down two out of the last three days. ... That's why you buy UNH. Don't forget, I own it for

ActionAlertsPLUS, the charitable trust.

Grant Prideco

(GRP)

: "I still like that stock. ... For the drillers like Grant Prideco, it is still two thumbs up, one way up."

Dendreon

TheStreet Recommends

(DNDN)

: "I want you out of that train wreck, that House of Pain. It's up a dollar from where they did the secondary."

TradeStation

(TRAD)

: "That is a House of Pleasure. My buddy

research associate Will "Slim" Gabrielski has been telling me that's the horse to be on."

Birch Mountain

(BMD)

: "The stock has just been completely hammered. ... I'm blessing the stock, and even though it's Canadian, I'm giving it the

Stars and Stripes

." (Cramer then plays the John Philip Sousa score.)

OraSure

(OSUR) - Get OraSure Technologies, Inc. Report

: "I think OraSure is not done going down. I think you're gonna see 8 bucks before we're finished (going down)."

Sonus

(SONS)

: "My friend ... I need you out of that stock, and I don't even want you to wait until the show is over."

Intuitive Surgical

(ISRG) - Get Intuitive Surgical, Inc. Report

: "I now want to ring the register. I think ISRG has overstayed its welcome on the 52-week-high list. I feel the same on ISRG as I did on ELOS (

Syneron Medical

). ... In other words, ring the register."

Computer Sciences

(CSC)

: "The takeover we predicted on this show looks like it's about to happen. Don't ring the register."

: "I love the theme parks; the movies are terrific. The stock's the ultimate bowwow."

Adobe Systems

Salesforce

)."

Ford

: "Absolutely not," Cramer replied when asked if the automaker could turn it around.

: "You don't need to be in that second-rate supermaket chain that couldn't sell itself."

Flanders

(FLDR) - Get Fidelity Low Duration Bond Factor ETF Report

: "I like Flanders; it's been a dog."

Whole Foods Market

(WFMI)
