Cramer's lightning round: McDonald's is 'one of the greatest stocks of our time'

  • 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.

Nektar Therapeutics NKTR : "Nektar's pretty good. The problem is that group is so bad, it is a total spec on oncology and pain. Why not own Novartis NOVN-CH . That's not a spec. You've got growth and you've got yield. How can you beat that?"

Kinder Morgan KMI : "It's finally starting to move. I mean, [Executive Chairman] Rich Kinder has bought so much stock ... Yield's 5%, the dividend is gonna go up. It's O.K. I don't like fossil."

McDonald's Corp. MCD : "Intel INTC , not so great. I don't feel it there. Exxon XOM , I don't like the fossil. McDonald's is one of the greatest stocks of our time, and I pounded that thing every time it is down. And do you think that Mr. [CEO Steve] Easterbrook has come on this show? I have had McMuffins, I've had Big Macs and fries. It has meant nothing, nothing to Mr. Easterbrook. Until he comes here, I'm just gonna keep recommending his stock."

L Brands Inc. LB : "Why did you buy it, Doug?"

Scientific Games Corp. SGMS : "The gaming is not our thing."
