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:
Companhia Vale do Rio Doce
: "We've liked this stock literally for 15 points." But Cramer said its connection to China's economy, which is cooling, is a short-term negative. "Let it come in, then you'll have to buy it back. Rio is a great growth story ... as is Brazil."
: "Seemingly inexpensive ... problem is on a book value basis, it is very expensive. ... I say ixnay on the TrustConay. Let's go buy some
( MOT): "
reported a pretty good number," which Cramer said surprised him. But "I've been right to stay away from Moto ... they sent me a press release about how Carl Icahn is not welcome on their board. ... Motorola, let Carl Icahn on your board. And if not, until then,
viewers, stay away."
: "Marking time ... one of just three tech stocks I said you could own right through to the summer."
: "That's the good Quicksilver ... happens to be in my sweet spot ... a company that's done some fabulous work finding out-of-the-way oil-and-gas properties. ... should be bought ... along with
Procter & Gamble
: "I think it's a coiled spring ... I like management very much ... I say it's at the right level ... step up to the plate and buy it before it hits 65."
( PCU): "The Chinese are trying to cool off their economy ... let
itcome down, and then we'll do some buying."
: Kind of has been lost in the shuffle. ... The long-term record with RPM
maker of Rustoleum is so good, we're giving them the benefit of the doubt."
St. Jude Medical
: "Two ways to win." Cramer said those are either to "get the heart business pumping much faster or we get a takeover. Do not abandon St. Jude even though it's had a nice run."
: "They decided they don't want value ... you take the
dividend, you hold the stock. Dow will be acquired."
: "Surprised the stock has pulled back .... We stay long Domino's, and I want you to buy some."
: "When the stock got to 74, quite an anomaly after they reported a fantastic quarter." Cramer, who owns the stock for his
Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust, says Diageo has three of his friends -- Jose Cuervo, Captain Morgan and Johnnie Walker -- working for it. "Stock just up 9 straight points. ... I want you to wait for a pullback to 80 before I want you to get involved."
: "I do like the brokerage business, and that's what it's levered to."
: "Holy cow is that ever a great company. Tiffany,
-- those are all premium brands that you can buy and pay high multiples for."
*For all you home-gamers, a 'mon-back opportunity means Cramer would back up the figurative truck and load up on a stock.
