Cramer's lightning round: Stick with this airline through its dip

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:

Alaska Air Group Inc. (NYSE: ALK): "Stick with it. American Air (NASDAQ: AAL) brought a lot of them down, but Alaska Air and Southwest (NYSE: LUV) are the two best. I think this is a terrific company. It's selling at 10 times earnings, that's highly unusual. I think it's in great shape."

Brooks Automation (NASDAQ: BRKS): "I like it, I like it, I like it. It's part of the semiconductor cohort that I think is on fire. It's a good one."

Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN): "Very controversial stock. I'm doing a lot on it. It's got a good dividend and it's got a lot of money overseas. My concern here is that I worry about a patent clip, but I will be back on it."

Mitek Systems (NASDAQ: MITK): "Imaging software, very good. I'm going to steer you toward a cheaper one, I'm going to steer you toward HPE (NYSE: HPE) at $18. That is the one to own. I think that you've got less downside, more upside."
