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

FirstMerit ( FMER): "FirstMerit has done everything right. The FDIC needs to start giving them some of the assets from the bad banks. "

IMS Health ( RX): "If you're going to get into that business, I'm going to send you to Allscripts-Misys ( MDRX), which has been doing well for us."

Coeur d'Alene Mines ( CDE): "Silver is going higher, but I'd rather own the coins than the stocks."

Alcoa ( AA): "I don't like Alcoa, it's just too poorly run. I do like Freeport-McMoRan ( FCX) and BHP Billiton ( BHP), but let's wait for them to come down, they've had too big a run."

Chevron ( CVX): "Here's a company that pre-announced a bad quarter and now it's baked into the stock. It yields 4% and I want to buy it to the power of nine."
