Source: CNBC. Jim Cramer rattled off his take on callers' favorite stocks, including a device play fielding rumors of a buyout.

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:

Wingstop Inc. (NASDAQ: WING): "You know what, I like it. I mean, I know that we had them on, the next quarter was just OK. I think it's doing a better job that Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ: BWLD). I've got to tell you, any place that I want to have a franchise for, I'd be interested in buying the stock."

Sanofi (Euronext Paris: SAN-FR): "I like that stock. I've got to tell you, [it's] got a good yield. Mostly what I really like is they've got that big position in Regeneron (NASDAQ: REGN). They should merge and really kill it."

Micron Technology (NASDAQ: MU): "This is very tough, because what happened is the price has spiked so much that people believe that they may have actually ruined the demand curve. And Seagate (NASDAQ: STX) reported a number today that people didn't regard as being as strong as they'd like, so it's pulled down everybody. I think Micron is fine. It's just not in the explosive phase anymore because people keep thinking there's going to be one day [where] there's too many DRAMs, and then boom. But I don't think that day is here yet. I think we're OK. I'm no longer as confident as I've been saying because we've liked that from the teens."

Apollo Global Management (NYSE: APO): "It's [CEO] Leon Black. He's good. Now, I happened to like Blackstone (NYSE: BX) more, but I think that that's a good company. Fifty-two week high. Why? Because you're able to start selling, they can do IPOs, they can liquefy."

NiSource Inc. (NYSE: NI): "Oh man, buy more. That is an absolutely terrific stock. NiSource is fantastic. I really, really like it. It's got a great yield and it's got good growth characteristics."

Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE: ETP): "Too risky for me. That guy who runs that thing, he's just all about making deals and deals and deals and deals. I just like safe yield."
