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

Qualcomm ( QCOM - Get Report): "Did you hear the bullish stampede ... this great maker of the stuff that is inside your cell phone is just rocking. I'm issuing a 'mon back* right here."

Wal-Mart ( XTO): "Don't buy, don't buy, don't buy. It is still a huge bummer to shop there. ... I can't get my kids to go there."

XTO Energy ( XTO) "is strictly 'mon back material" because its properties will be unscathed by Hurricane Rita.

Ashland ( ASH - Get Report): "Why are they giving Ashland away? That's a mistake. I would buy that stock here."
