Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks that callers offered up during the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Tuesday evening:

DuPont

: "Late-stage cyclical ... that is right for this environment. ... I like DuPont and

Eastman Chemical

. And may I throw in

Dow

?"

Progenics

: "They've got a cancer vaccine ... Maybe Don'tBuy, but absolutely Don'tSell."

Goldcorp

: "Recommended at 18. Here it as at 38 ... it's still the best."

Wachovia

: "Deep in the wheelhouse of 'stride-dom.' I think Wachovia is a winner."

NYSE Group

: "This stock has got that free fall feel. I say don't buy until it goes to 60."

Quantum Fuel

: "I don't like that stock. I'm throwing in

Ballard Power

. I'm throwing in

Sasol

."

Stillwater Mining

: "I'm going to recommend that you swap out of Stillwater and go into the supermarket of minerals,

BHP

: "I think you should 'mon back* in here. This is one of the few that did not have that ramp. ... I say all aboard, the race is on."

: "Sells at 50 times earnings, that's a little rich. Let's wait until it

share price comes to 30 and then we'll pull the trigger."

: "I like

Nektar

better. ... Don't forget
