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

Merck (MRK) : "I think Merck has the best anti-cancer portfolio and I'll bless buying more."

Cara Therapeutics (CARA) : "I think it's really good. Buy, buy, buy."

Yirendai (YRD) : "I'm sorry, this is a sell. I only recommend Baidu.com (BIDU) and Alibaba (BABA) ."

IBM (IBM) : "I think it will be an OK quarter. I'd buy some here and some more lower."

FactSet Research Systems (FDS) : "I like that stock."

Annaly Capital (NLY) : "I find this one very opaque and I can't recommend it."

Smart Global Holdings (SGH) : "My favorite is HP (HPQ) . I'd go with that one."

PPG Industries (PPG) : "Accounting irregularities equals sell and I can't go against my rules."
