Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Game Plan for Next Week (Final)

Turning to the company's business prospects, Rodgers said that buttons on gadgets will become obsolete, as touch interfaces will be the way humans interact with everything from their watch to their TV in the near future. That trend, said Rodgers, leaves huge opportunities for touch controllers that Cypress manufactures. He also touted the company's investment in Deca Technologies as being another huge opportunity for Cypress.

Cramer said while the semiconductor business can be rocky from time to time, Rodgers has delivered in the past and Cypress pays a nice dividend while investors wait for the more lucrative back half of the year.

Upon Further Review

In the "Upon Further Review" segment, Cramer took a second look at the earnings of Kimberly-Clark (KMB - Get Report), a company that delivered a 7-cent-a-share earnings beat on a 4.2% increase in revenue.

Cramer said while Kimberly delivered great earnings on its own, those earnings were even more spectacular when compared to those of its peers, like rival Procter & Gamble (PG - Get Report), which disappointed analysts for its second quarter in a row. While P&G appears to have lost its way, said Cramer, Kimberly, the makers of Kleenex tissues and Huggies diapers, has been taking share and growing organically.

Kimberly executives were very upbeat on their conference call, noted Cramer, as the company continues to do well overseas. Latin America and Asia for example, now account for 35% of the company's sales and is growing rapidly. Increased sales, coupled with falling pulp and natural gas prices, are only adding to the company's success.

Better still is valuation, noted Cramer. While Kimberly trades at just 14.2 times earnings, P&G trades at 15.6 times earnings and Colgate-Palmolive (CL) trades at 19 times earnings. Given that Kimberly Clark is able to execute, is taking share and has a 3.75% dividend yield to boot, Cramer said the choice in the consumer staples arena is pretty clear.

Executive Decision

In the second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Greg Lucier, chairman and CEO of Life Technologies (LIFE), a biotech firm on the leading edge of DNA sequencing products.

Lucier said that his company's latest gene sequencers will allow patients who get diagnosed with cancer on a Monday to be able to review their specific mutants that Tuesday, all for around $1,000. That will allow doctors to match patients with one of the 500 or so oncology drugs on the market that will work best for them.
