Cramer's lightning round: 'I'd rather own Snowflake than I would Cloudera'

Key Points
  • It's that time again! "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer rings the lightning round bell, which means he's giving his answers to callers' stock questions at rapid speed.

Zuora: "I know this space and there are other competitors that are competitive against them, and that's why it's struggling so much. It's got real competition and that's an anathema to those who own a stock, especially a high-growth stock."

Albireo Pharma: "It's a totally speculative stock. Pediatric liver, very niche market. If they hit it out of the park, even if they hit it out of the park, I still don't think you make that much money. But it's a spec ... and remember, I find room in a 10-stock portfolio for a stock like that. It's fine."

Bruker Corporation: "Here's the problem with Bruker. Thermo Fisher and Danaher are both better companies. They have a higher dollar amount, but ... those are the better plays. Those are both better."

Cloudera: "No, no. It's cloudy in Cloudera. I mean I would, literally, this is what is so odd about it. I'd rather own Snowflake than I would Cloudera because Cloudera does not have growth, and I'm not looking for value when it comes to that segment. Salesforce is also in that business. Don't forget."

Teva Pharmaceutical: "Teva is an expensive stock that I believe is going to stay inexpensive because they don't have any growth, and I don't want stocks that have no growth."

Salesforce: "I've liked Salesforce, I've liked it since 2008. I like it now. As long as [Marc Benioff] is there, then I think I'm going to like Salesforce. I think he's doing fantastic. I think he's doing fantastic."

Barrick Gold: "If anything, I want to use this decline to buy ... Barrick. I like Barrick very much."

Cramer's lightning round: Barrick Gold is a buy and I would choose Snowflake over Cloudera
