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

Tesla Motors (TSLA): "This is a cult stock powered by emotion and that's not a reason to buy a stock."

Chegg (CHGG): "This has been a huge disappointment. I'd be a seller."

Hercules Offshore (HERO): "No, that's not a great oil and gas service company. You want Schlumberger (SLB)."

Molycorp (MCP): "No, I don't want you anywhere near that."

Ballard Power Systems (BLDP): "No, no. That just had a parabolic move. I'm not recommending it."

Zogenix (ZGNX): "This is a speculative play. I think you're OK."

NXP Semiconductors (NXPI): "If you want that, go with Skyworks Solutions (SWKS)."

Vale (VALE): "This is a terrible name."

Sysco (SYY): "I think this is exactly where you want to be. Well done."
