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:

Illumina (ILMN - Get Report) : "This is a great company. I also like Thermo Fisher Scientific (TMO - Get Report) ."

The GEO Group (GEO - Get Report) : "I'm not a big fan of this industry. It's inherently unpredictable."

Occidental Petroleum (OXY - Get Report) : "I think if you want an oil company you need bigger dividend protection."

AK Steel Holding (AKS - Get Report) : "This is not a great company. It's not as good as Nucor (NUE - Get Report) ."

Transocean (RIG - Get Report) : "This is probably not that far from bottoming, but I'm worried about the dividend. I like Ensco International (ESV) , which has also been getting hammered."

Baxter International (BAX - Get Report) : "I think this one is finally starting to run. It's time to pull the trigger."
