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 Tuesday evening:

Akamai Technologies (AKAM): "The stock is fully valued and I wouldn't be a buyer."

Vivus (VVUS): "I think this is too speculative and I'd rather be in Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) or Merck (MRK)."

LinnCo (LNCO): "We've had ups and downs in this one. I think the company is fine and the stock is inexpensive."

Lannett Company (LCI): "I'd rather be in Perrigo (PRGO)."

Rite Aid (RAD): "This stock is recharging and I believe in them."

Windstream (WIN): "This is entirely a dividend play. I don't like to reach for yield. I'd rather be in Enterprise Products Partners (EPD)."

General Electric (GE): "They need to explain why the future is brighter than the past or the stock will do nothing."

Chubb (CB): "I like Travelers Companies (TRV) a little more because it's cheaper."

Alcatel-Lucent (ALU): "I liked the stock lower but now it seems capped. I suggest you buy Cisco Systems (CSCO)."
