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:
Ruth's Chris Steak House
: "Ruth's Chris is a quandary to me because it's a very well-run company. They actually do a very good job. .... But there is nothing that is setting the table. ... I think you should sell Ruth's Chris. ... It's just nothing special."
: "Nah, no. ... I've never really liked the stock of Cree. It's been way too hard to trade, way too many disappointments. ... I want you to stay away from Cree."
( MER): "The reason why I called the brokers' bottoms is because once the estimates come down, that's the bottom. ... Last week Merrill had estimates cut by Golden Slacks, and it's done going down. ... That's the bottom. ... I like Merril Lynch."
: "No, no no! ... Here's what I want you to do with Brunswick. ... I said sell that stock at 30. ... You cannot own that stock going into a slowdown. You have to sell that stock going into a slowdown."
( NXG): "I owned the stock. ... They crushed me, I got beaten up. ... I recommended
. ... Don't trade down to Northgate. Trade up to Barrick."
: "My short-term and long-term outlook is the same. ... ValueClick at 24 is going to have to be acquired by someone. ... I do a triple-buy on ValueClick."
: "Let me tell you something ... all the Puerto Rican banks trade much too cheaply for me to feel there's anything good going on. ... I don't want to touch that. ... Don'tBuyDon'tBuy. I like
( NCC), I like
: "Come on, still waters run deep, pal. ... I think Corning's got two businesses ... it's got the fiber business, which I like very much, and it's got the crystal liquid display business, which I also like very much. I'm looking for an upside surprise in Corning. ... I like it."
: "I've been recommending Enbridge for more than a year. ... I think Enbridge is one of the great pipeline companies. ... I recommend Enbridge."
