Lightning Round: Playing the Panama Canal

It's that time again! Jim Cramer rang the lightning round bell, which means he gave his take on caller favorite stocks at rapid speed:

JetBlue Airways: "You're OK. I prefer Southwest right here. The group is under a lot of pressure."

TAL International: "If you want to play the new canal [Panama] there is only one way to do it, and that is CSX. It reports Wednesday, but I think it is going to be good for them. Wait until after the quarter because I am worried about coal shipments."

Boston Scientific Corporation: "I like Boston Scientific. Why do I like it? I like the device plays. Bard, I like Becton Dickinson, I like Boston Scientific. That's like Brahms, Beethoven and Bach."

Bojangles: "The chicken segment is a little under pressure right now with Popeyes and Bojangles. I prefer to be in Starbucks these days. Back over $60, maybe it comes in a little when they report, but I like it. A charitable trust name."

Boeing: "I'm waiting for an accounting clear-up on what is going on at Boeing before I recommend that stock."

Neurocrine Biosciences: "It's OK. It's a very, very hard group of diseases that they are trying to cure. It's pure speculation and it is down 20 percent. Not for a retirement account, but if you want to speculate, I totally get it."

Apple Hospitality REIT: "It's fine. In that area I prefer EPR, I prefer entertainment. EPR Properties has a little bit less of a yield, but I think I feel better about because of the mosaic of properties that it owns."

Baxalta on its deal with Shire Corp: "Everybody says not to worry about it. But I say if there is a war on business, ring the register. I can't go there. Maybe they feel like even though they said it was OK, it's not. I can't go there."

Harman International Industries: "Harman has been hurt by a strong dollar, and Harman has been hurt by what people think is a slowdown in the autos. I happen to like Harman, I think it is a very good business. I am not going to say no to buying Harman right here at these prices. Half a position, then wait for the quarter. That strong dollar has played havoc with them."
