Lighting Round: This one is a strong buy

It's that time again! The Lightning Round bell has rung, and Jim Cramer gives his take on a few favorite audience stocks:

Keryx Biopharma: "Too tough; it is too speculative for me. You've got to handle that one on your own."

Intel: "I think this is a solid stock. It is underrated by most of Wall Street, it's got a great dividend and a great balance sheet and a good CEO. I say yes to that one."

3D Systems: "I don't prefer it. I do prefer Stratasys and next year at this time, it's going to be Hewlett-Packard is the only one I'm going to be recommending,"

General Motors: "This is a stock that my charitable trust is stuck in it, and every day I curse the fact that I bought the darned thing. I cannot believe how poor management was before Mary Barra got in. It's just too difficult to own."

IBM: "I think you want to sell IBM on any lift. I do not trust the stock and I think management does not know what to do right now with their business."

Linn Energy: "I think it's too risky. I don't like the fact that you have so much exposure to the commodity and it's really difficult to own right now. I like Kinder Morgan much better."

Raytheon: "It's a strong buy. I think that company is just terrific. I also like General Dynamics, my favorite is Lockheed Martin and Northrup Grumman."

Altria: "It is time to take profits in that stock. I think the growth has been taken."

Westport: "They over promised and under delivered. That is no longer the status of what you want to be involved in, so I recommend you do not own that stock."

Procter & Gamble: "It is no longer at the level that I want to get involved with. I prefer to buy Merck right now on the weakness than I would this stock."

Caterpillar: "They have excellent management, but they have spent too much money being invested in China. I do not think that right now is the time to buy Caterpillar. If I can get it under $98 than I will."
