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" on CNBC last night:

Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ): "I like to bottom fish like the rest of them but this one you need to throw back."

Gilead Sciences ( GILD): "This may be the strongest in the group with Celgene ( CELG) coming in second."

Darden Restaurants ( DRI): "The stock had a big run then did nothing. I'd wait until $50 then buy it."

Norfolk Southern ( NSC): "This one is trying to bottom with a decent yield. If Obama gets reelected then you want Union Pacific ( UNP)."

Interoil ( IOC): "The oil business has been bad, which is why I want yield. I like ConocoPhillips ( COP)."

Nuance Communications ( NUAN): "I've always been leery of voice recognition."

United States Oil Fund ( USO): "No, no, no. These ETFs don't work. You need to be in an oil and gas company like ConocoPhillips ( COP) or LinnCo ( LNCO)."

Alexion Pharmaceuticals ( ALXN): "I'd rotate over to Gilead Sciences ( GILD)."

Windstream ( WIN): "I still don't like it, CenturyLink ( CTL) is the better play. "

Phillips 66 ( PSX): "I like the refiners very much. Wait for a pullback and you'll have a good one."
