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 Thursday evening:

Healthcare Trust of America (HTA - Get Report) : “I say buy Ventas (VTR - Get Report) over Healthcare Trust of America.”

Duke Realty (DRE - Get Report) : “Great yield, slow grower. But it’s a real good company so I want you to hold onto it.”

GoPro (GPRO - Get Report) : “GoPro’s having a very big holiday season, but shorts are knocking it around. If you’re going to play, use deep-in-the-money calls to cut off your downside.”

Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) : “I like the stock and it’s a fine investment, I just happen to like Cisco Systems (CSCO) a little more.”

Hewlett-Packard (HPQ - Get Report) : “I definitely want you to hold onto the stock and buy it on a drop.”

Plug Power (PLUG - Get Report) : “These guys are not making the playoffs. I don’t like it.”

Peabody Energy (BTU - Get Report) : “I don’t want you to touch BTU.”

Gilead Sciences (GILD - Get Report) : “Celgene (CELG - Get Report) is first, Regeneron (REGN - Get Report) is second, Biogen Idec (BIIB - Get Report) is third and Gilead Sciences is fourth. Right now Gilead is a hold, the others are a buy.”

Texas Instruments (TXN - Get Report) : “It’s one of the stocks that just creeps higher. It’s is a buy.”

Molson Coors Brewing (TAP - Get Report) : “Oh yeah, it’s a buy. My favorite is Constellation Brands (STZ - Get Report) .”
