Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks that callers offered up on the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Wednesday evening. And this was recorded before a live studio audience for the Main Event II:

MetLife ( MET - Get Report): "It's a buy. It's screaming. You mind if I add Prudential ( PRU - Get Report)?"

Boeing ( BA - Get Report): "I like Boeing. At 63, BuyBuyBuy."

Johnson & Johnson ( JNJ - Get Report): "Don'tBuyDon'tBuy."

PepsiCo ( FHR): "What's not to like? They oughta call it Frito-Lay. The Frito-Lay business is en fuego. Two thumbs up. Way up."

Banco Bradesco ( BBB): "They have credit cards and mortgages in Latin America." (Sound of truck backing up for a mon-back.* )

Fairmont Hotels ( FHR): "You should stay out of it. It's a nasty place."

Microsoft ( MSFT - Get Report): "Paddles, clear. There's a pulse."

Tibco Software ( TIBX): "I believe at the $7 level, I am willing to be kind and say Don'tBuyDon'tBuy."

Wells Fargo ( MOT): "Really clean book. But until Greenspan checks into Sunrise Senior Living, I cannot give it my thumbs-up."

HDFC Bank ( HDFC): "I gotta stick by it."

Motorola ( MOT): "I think Ed Zander is for me."

Cemex ( CX - Get Report): "Two thumbs up."

Nordstrom ( JWN - Get Report): "I think the high end is starting to run out of steam."

Starbucks ( SBUX - Get Report): "I did find out that a regular Starbucks cup of coffee has whatever they are ... 300 BTUs of caffeine. But under 50 pre-split, it could be OK..."

Titanium Metals ( TIE): "It's a multiyear hairline cycle. ... You should buy TIE."
