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

Nike ( NKE - Get Report): "The pin action in the athletic foot business has never been better. You get two thumbs up, way up for Nike."

UnitedHealth Group ( HANS): "UnitedHealth is for me."

Hansen Natural ( HANS): "I know the shorts are gonna make a stand, but I'm sticking with it."

CMS Energy ( CMS - Get Report): "Thirteen dollars, probably goes to 15 in two years' time ... even though I like it, it's not exciting."

TiVo ( TIVO - Get Report): "I love CEO Tom Rogers. ... He's terrific. My take is you must ring the register. This is as good as it gets."

American International Group ( AIG - Get Report): "This thing is back and bigger than ever."

Navistar International ( NAV - Get Report): "Navistar is good, not great. ... You should be in Eaton ( ILSE). Eaton is cheaper."

Chesapeake Energy ( FOXH): "I'm sticking with Chesapeake. I believe in it."

FoxHollow Technologies ( FOXH): "A lot of people are saying this company is not a real company, so to speak. I would rather see you in ELOS ( Syneron ( CMED)). I prefer IntraLase ( ILSE) to that. And let's not forget, ChinaMed ( CMED)."

Advanced Micro Devices ( AMD - Get Report): "You're OK. ... I like the group (semiconductors)."

Wachovia ( WB - Get Report): "Sweet stock, chief. ... I think Wachovia is the preferred bank to buy right here."

Microsoft ( CFC): "I think that Microsoft is about to break out here. And I'm not just talking about Xbox."

Countrywide Financial ( CFC): " CEO Angelo Mozilo is the best. ... I think the company is so cheap I can't believe Wells Fargo ( APCC) doesn't buy them. ... You gotta buy it right here at the trough of the cycle."

American Power Conversion ( APCC): "That stock's not any good."

EMC ( EMC): "I think that EMC, while not cheap, should schnitzel itself to 15 before you have to take a profit in that."

Bebe stores ( BEBE): "You don't want to touch that one with Urban Outfitters ( URBN) much cheaper."

Broadcom ( BRCM): "Move the truck back* on Broadcom."
