NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks that callers offered up during the "Mad Money Lightning Round" Friday evening.

McDonald's ( MCD): "This stock is not getting any respect. They just raised the dividend and deliver on their numbers. I'm a buyer of McDonald's"

Caterpillar ( CAT): "There was nothing in that upgrade that impressed me. I like Caterpillar but I need it to come in first, and I was surprised by the upgrade."

Corrections Corp. of America ( CXW): "I don't have a lot of enthusiasm for this group. I think budgets are too stretched and there's not a lot of money left for prisons."

Macquarie Infrastructure ( MIC): "We're sellers here. Book the profit and let's move on."

Visa ( V): "I want to pull the trigger on Monday and buy Visa."
