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:

: "A really well-run savings and loan ... but with yield curve inverted, Don'tBuyDon'tBuy."
: Bears and analysts don't understand that this is part of the ag play, Cramer said. They look at it too much as a chemical company. "Has hybrid corn seeds in a world in which we are short corn seeds. I would be an aggressive buyer right here at 59." Cramer has referred to Monsanto before as a biotech play.

: "Been hurt by weak sales of Tundra (

: "Down more than 20% from its high. ... That's a colossal mistake

( CDWC): "Technology products to businesses and government ... like a contract company. ... I say ixnay, I can't go there."
: "Why am I worried about this company? ... I don't want to be linked to government spending right now because I don't think it is trustworthy." If you're going to go that route, Cramer suggested, lean toward defense contractors such as
