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:

Ambarella  (AMBA) - Get Report: "This has made a great comeback. I think you're OK in it."

Dollar General  (DG) - Get Report: "I think it's a buy at these levels. Stimulus checks are coming and that's a fabulous opportunity."

Quidel  (QDEL) - Get Report: "I'm going to say no. This was not a good quarter for them."

XPO Logistics  (XPO) - Get Report: "You want to buy this one. The last quarter was terrific."

Boise Cascade  (BCC) - Get Report: "I think this one is terrific. I like Trex  (TREX) - Get Report and Azek Company  (AZEK)  and this one as well."

On Wall Street Monday, stocks finished mixed as a selloff in bonds indicated investors expected stronger economic growth, but also a pickup in inflation.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished up 27 points, or 0.09%, to 31,521, while the S&P 500 declined 0.77%.

The Nasdaq ended down 2.46%. Technology shares were the leading laggards as the high-growth stocks can be more vulnerable to inflation pressures.

Apple  (AAPL) - Get Report ended down 3%, while Amazon  (AMZN) - Get Report declined 2.1%.
