To see the full "Mad Money" Recap, please click here.


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:

Safeway: "This is the right time to own Safeway ... near its 52-week high ... 25 goes to 30!"

Ciena: "Don'tBuyDon'tBuyDon'tBuy."

Broadwing: "That sector is no longer in bull market mode, and I cannot pretend that it is a bull in bear's clothing!"

Eagle Materials: "The time for this stock was about seven months ago. ... I think it's still not too late to ring the register."

Iron Mountain: "No catalyst, nothing to do."

CME: "Still has pricing power. ... The longer that they dilly-dally over the New York Stock Exchange's purchase of that Euronext," the better it is for Chicago Merc, Cramer said.

3M: Cramer said it's been a dog lately, but has a 2.6% yield and solid balance sheet ... if you take a six- to nine-month perspective. But for now, Don'tBuy.

Sun Life Financial: "I need a more mainstream name" in insurance, Cramer said. He offered Manulife, Prudential and Met.

Sealy: "I've been dead wrong on Sealy. ... I think that Sealy is done going down. It's got great cash flow."

Oakley: "A cheap stock at 15 ... I think there is tremendous value in that stock that hasn't been unlocked."

Nike: "I think Nike is too cheap. ... I would stick with Nike."
