Here's what Jim Cramer had to say about some of the stocks during the Mad Money Lightning Round:

Adobe Systems (ADBE) : "That's a big position for Action Alerts PLUS and one of my favs."

Nutanix (NTNX) : "If I'm going to be in that general vicinity, I'm going with Salesforce.com (CRM) ."

Paccar (PCAR) : "I think that one is fine, but I do like Cummins (CMI) more."

ConocoPhillips (COP) : "I'm not going to get rid of it here. It's stuck in a range. Just own it."

Annaly Capital (NLY) : "I don't know what's in their portfolio but it is one of the better ones in this group."

NeoPhotonics (NPTN) : "This space is too hard and too risky for me."

Dryships (DRYS) : "I do not recommend those stocks. They are too volatile and I don't like them."

Viavi Solutions (VIAV) : "If you want that, I'd go with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) which is much less volatile."
