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" on CNBC last night:

Cisco (CSCO) : This is the best house in a very tough neighborhood," Cramer said. "Don't buy it, even tho' it's cheap."

MarkWest Energy (MWE) : "I liked the secondary" offering, Cramer said, but "this is no Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP) .

Cirrus Logic (CRUS) : "If I want an Apple (AAPL) play, I'll buy Apple."

Parker Drilling (PDK) : "No. You don't need this. I'd rather see you in Schlumberger (SLB) .

Asked if he preferred Syngenta (SYT) to Monsanto (MON) , Cramer said both are "really good companies."

Alcoa (AA) : "This is a growth stock in an aluminum body. We'll have to wait."

He counseled patience on Yelp (YELP) and said, "Don't sell it."

Carrizo Oil and Gas (CRZO) : It's OK. I prefer others to it. I'd even recommend Chesapeake Energy (CHK) , and that says a lot.
