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

Target ( TGT - Get Report): "I'm staying with Target and I'm a 'mon back* under 55."

Barnes & Noble ( BKS): "Better of two between Borders ( BGP) and Barnes & Noble. ... Swap out of Amazon ( AMZN - Get Report) in to Barnes and Noble."

Computer Sciences ( CSC): "I wanna buy CSC."

Sun Hydraulics ( SNHY): "Not-so-hot quarter. Fluid power should be en fuego."

Intuitive Surgical ( ISRG - Get Report): "You should ring the register. Didn't you ever take that astronomy course that tells you how high you are?"

BioCryst Pharma ( BCRX - Get Report): "I think the trade's been done. I am simply, Don'tBuyDont'Buy."

Costco ( ARXT): "In fact, right here, right now, I'm doing a 'mon back."

Adams Respiratory ( ARXT): "You are now up 10 from where I suggested that." Cramer said to ring the register but "nice going, boys."

Jakks Pacific ( JAKK - Get Report): "Ring the register. You got a nice gain there."

eBay ( EBAY - Get Report): "They paid $2 billion for Skype. ... It will mark a high-water mark for eBay like AOL did for Time Warner ( TWX), Cramer suggested and I say SellSellSell."

Exelon ( COMS): "I am declaring Exelon eminently buyable."

3Com ( COMS): "You are lucky. ... People who owned it were in a house of pain. ... It's come up a little bit, you could own a quality stock like a Broadcom or a Qualcomm."

Excel Maritime ( ABGX): "These tanker stocks are not for me. ... I can't be in these stocks with oil going to 50."

Merck ( DNA): "I am giving you a pass to sell Merck." Cramer suggested "scaling into some Genentech ( DNA) or Celgene ( GENZ), among others."

Abgenix ( ABGX): "You sell that Abgenix and you buy some Genzyme ( GENZ)."

Fidelity National ( FNF - Get Report): "The pin action off Toll Brothers ( KYPH) definitely extends to this business."

Kyphon ( KYPH): "I like that stock last week. I like it now."

Visteon ( VC - Get Report): "I don't have enough sell buttons to tell you what I think of Visteon."

Taser ( BSC): "That has a permanent lease in the House of Pain. ... Get out of that one right now."

Bear Stearns ( BSC): "Am I sure I like that company? No, I'm not. I love that company."
