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

McDonald's  (MCD) : "They've been inconsistent as of late. I'd wait for it to yield 3% and then buy, buy, buy. "

Facebook  (FB) : "This is incredibly cheap. It's inexpensive given its growth rate."

Groupon  (GRPN) : "This is a reopening stock and it's one that works."

Read the full Mad Money Recap from Wednesday's show, Reopening Rotation: Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap (Wednesday 3/3/21). Cramer said one of the biggest themes in this market is that anything that was liked last year is hated this year.

Cramer interviewed Bob Kramer, president and CEO of Emergent BioSolutions  (EBS) ; Todd Penegor, president and CEO of Wendy's  (WEN) ; and Nick Akins, chairman, president and CEO of his favorite utility, American Electric Power  (AEP) .

On Wall Street Wednesday, stocks finished lower after Treasury yields spiked and a report showed the U.S. private sector added jobs in February at a weaker-than-expected pace.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished down 121 points, or 0.39%, to 31,270, the S&P 500 fell 1.31% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq ended down 2.7%.

At one point in Wednesday trading, the Dow industrials were higher by more than 170 points, or 0.5%.
