Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Bears' Conundrum (Final)

Stocks in this article: PPO HEV AVAV APSG AMZN GG JAH

Organic Growth

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Martin Franklin, executive chairman of Jarden Corp (JAH), which is up 30% since Cramer first got behind the company in November, 2009, and one that's just one point off its 52-week high. Jarden pre-announced better-than-expected earnings earlier today.

Franklin said that when it comes to consumer products, there are no tired brands, only tired brand managers, and Jarden is not one of those managers. He said that thanks to continual innovation, Jarden's organic growth alone is now larger than the entire company was just a few years ago.

When asked about the company's gross margins, Franklin said that brands need to earn their price points and keep costs under control, which is what Jarden has become an expert at. He said while some assembly is still done in China, for some products, assembly is done in Mexico, and the company is actively trying to keep production in the U.S. where ever possible.

Finally, when asked about the company's foray into the single-serve coffee market, Franklin explained that Jarden's Mr. Coffee brand has introduced a single-serve coffee machine that's compatible with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) K-Cup coffee pods.

Cramer continued his recommendation of Jarden.

Lightning Round

Cramer was bullish on Applied Signal Technology (APSG) and Amazon.com (AMZN).

He was bearish on Goldcorp (GG).

Closing Comments

In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer followed up on his "pre-game analysis" of Kimberly-Clark (KMB), a stock he said yesterday merely needed to meet expectations to do well.

Cramer said Kimberly did far better than just meet expectations, the company beat estimates by five cents a share and delivered inline guidance, while offering upbeat commentary that included a dividend boost, a stock buyback program and other restructuring designed to help boost the bottom line.

Shares of Kimberly shot up 3% on the news, and closed up $1.64 a share for the day. Cramer said if shares slide, he would be a buyer of Kimberly, but it's not likely given the company's strong performance as expected.
