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:
Lazard: "I would ring the register. This isn't a good call play, this is a slow-go growth stock with a 4 percent yield in an area of investment banking that is pretty strong. But not a call play. I would at least cut it in half. You don't need to play this one with calls."

General Electric: "A big position in our charitable trust. People went really crazy about it today thinking that this 3D acquisition that they made — which is two little companies in Europe — matters. It does not. What we need to see is big, big buyback how Nelson Peltz wants to see from Trian, who is dead right."
