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

Verizon ( VZ): "People regard this too cautious and safe. I'd used the flatlining to pick some up. I want to buy, buy, buy."

CV Therapeutics ( CVTX): "That deal is done, I want you to sell that one. It's time to move on to the next deal."

Denbury Resources ( DNR): "I think Denbury is an inexpensive mineral company. I'm a buyer, that one used to be twice as high."

Douglas Emmett ( DEI): "No, commercial real estate is not my thing. I do not like DEI."

Monsanto ( MON): "I think this is the best of the group, except for Terra Nitrogen ( TNH) with the great dividend. Monsanto is my number two pick in that group."

Mohawk Industries ( MHK): "These are all functions of housing coming back. I think housing is going higher, although I don't want to buy this one up here. "

Sohu.com ( SOHU): "I love the Chinese economy, but I don't like their stocks. I'd rather own Google ( GOOG)."

Foster Wheeler ( FWLT): "I took some profits today for my trust, but I still keep a substantial position."

MetLife ( MET): "Let me go through the pecking order. I like Travelers Companies ( TRV) first, then Chubb Corp ( CB), MetLife third, then AFLAC ( AFL) in that order."

Caterpillar ( CAT): "I'm mad at myself for not pulling the trigger. I was worried about the dividend and I screwed up. Let's wait for a pullback, then buy some."

St Jude Medical ( STJ): "This has been under attack, but it's such a strong stock it's going up anyway. I'd pull the trigger."

Teck Cominco ( TCK): "It's still cheap and I'd still buy it up to $8."
