Hot tech stocks Facebook (FB) , Apple (AAPL) and Alphabet (GOOGL) are all cheap relative to analysts' 2018-19 earnings expectations, Jim Cramer says.

"I do believe they represent the kind of high-growth stocks we need to own long term," Cramer said in a private conference call with members of his Action Alerts PLUS club for investors in early December.

Cramer owns all three names in his charitable trust.
