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:

NitroMed ( NTMD): "Ten million shares of it is short. ... I'm not backing away from NTMD. I think you should buy it."

Cell Genesys ( CEGE): "Forget the Cell Genesys. (Cramer prefers Amgen ( AMGN).)

Powerwave Tech ( PWAV): "Powerwave is the company that augments the towers from cell phones. ... I think you do a 'mon back* on the pullback."

World Fuel Services ( INT): "There's really no edge to that stock. ... Let's ring the register and buy some higher quality."

Chesapeake Energy ( CHK): "The stock could actually go down to 25, and a lot of folks won't be able to take the pain. ... My take is that Chesapeake's a keeper."

Nektar Thearpeutics ( NKTR): "Not for me."

Ameritrade ( AMTD): "One of the greatest plays on the Net. They're survivors, they put it together. Two thumbs up, way up."

Southwest ( LUV): "Southwest is spiking here. I believe it could have a couple more days on the upside."

National City ( NCC): "That is exactly what you should own when the Fed decides to stop this nonsense."

Equitable Resources ( EQT): "This is one of those natural resource plays ... I think Equitable with a 2% yield is not attractive."

Constellation Brands ( STZ): "I am not a chartist. This Constellation Brands has turned from one of the greatest stocks in the past five years to the House of Pain."

Atmel ( ATML): "This is the kind of three-buck integrated circuit play that will put you in the House of Pain."

JDS Uniphase ( JDSU): "They are telling a compelling story. ... I like their different divisions. ... Perhaps maybe a baby bull."

Brown & Brown ( BRO): "Really good insurer. Doesn't get talked about enough. ... This company knows how to run a good business."

Pixar ( PIXR): "That stock is going higher."

Under Armour ( UARM): "Take the profit as it pulls back to 20. Only there will I say reload."

Research In Motion ( RIMM): "Why do you need that headache? ... I'd rather have you in Broadcom ( BRCM)."

PPG Industries ( PPG): "Below 60 I'm mon-backing and liking it."
