To see the full "Mad Money" recap, please
Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks offered up by callers on the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Friday evening: Exxon Mobil ( XOM): "It's a bank. Not an oil company. It's my least favorite oil. But my least favorite oil is still better than anything else." Still, Cramer issued a Don'tBuyDontDon'tBuy. Verizon ( VZ): "That's flat-lining. I need you to sell it." Dell ( DELL) "The problem with Dell is share take by Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ)." Circuit City ( CC): I don't like Circuit City ... May I throw in Radio Shack ( RSH)? The play of that group is Best Buy ( BBY). Procter & Gamble ( PG): "You know I'm proud of Procter & Gamble. The best managed company in the United States and I wouldn't sell a share!"
