Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks during the Mad Money Lightning Round:

McDonald's (MCD) : "I'm saying yes to McDonald's right here."

United States Steel (X) : "No, I'm not a buyer. You want Nucor (NUE) ."

Ball Corp (BLL) : "I think Ball is a big winner."

Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA) : "No, Teva isn't good enough. We need growth and yield, and they don't have it."

Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) : "That's an ideal stock for this market. I like the choice."

Aqua America (WTR) : "This is not the stock for a hot economy, even though this is a well-run company."

Mueller Water Products (MWA) : "This is not the time to buy. I don't like the numbers."
