It's that time again! The Lightning Round bell has rung, and Jim Cramer gives his take on a few favorite audience stocks:
Restoration Hardware: "I think Restoration is a long-term play. We are not going to play this quarter to quarter because it's lumpy. You just want to own it, and stay with the guys, they know what they're doing."
VeriFone; "I think Verifone goes higher. Remember that this is a long-term play on the register and the turmoil at the register, and they are a winner in that turmoil."
Kroger: "When you get off the desk with operators in retail, you know what pops up as a name that people really respect? It's the people who run Kroger. I think it's going to have a bit of a pullback here because the straight line stocks have been coming in, but yes, I think Kroger is the one to own. Please don't forget: Whole Foods is back in renaissance mode. So if you want a little growth, Whole Foods may have it. "

3M: "With Inge Thulin, you think big. This guy is thinking big in every market he is in other than maybe band-aids. And I might argue that because I like the band-aid division of Johnson & Johnson. Do not sell Inge Thulin short! I am a buy, buy, buyer even as it is at it's 52-week high. "
Encana Corporation: "That's a bad balance sheet and you bought it at the top. Encana, no not for me."
