Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Keep an Eye on Gold, New Homes

Here's what Cramer had to say about callers' stocks during the "Lightning Round":

American International Group (AIG): "I sold a little bit for my charitable trust. I still like it. Wait for a pullback."

Mercadolibre (MELI): "I am not keen on this one. I'd rather see you own eBay (EBAY)."

Forest Laboratories (FRX): "I say buy, buy, buy."

Altria (MO): "That stock is coming in. I am recommending this one."

Healthy Earnings for Hain

In a third "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer checked in with Irvin Simon, chairman, president and CEO of Hain Celestial Group (HAIN - Get Report), a stock that shot up 19% Thursday on the company's earnings release and the news it's acquiring more brands for its healthy eating portfolio.

Simon said the transition to eating healthier is happening right now. He said just a few years ago Hain's brands were only sold at Whole Foods (WFM), but now they can be found in abundance at Wal-Mart (WMT), Kroger (KR) and Target (TGT). Simon noted that even (AMZN) is now one of the company's top five customers.

So what's the goal at Hain? Simon said it is to become the largest natural organic food company. That's why announcements like those by Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) that its baby shampoo contains formaldehyde is both alarming and a blessing for Hain. "Good health care starts with eating healthy," said Simon, who also noted that Hain makes organic baby shampoo and other baby items.

Hain currently has 11 brands growing by double digits, said Simon, and several others growing in the high single digits.

Cramer continued his recommendation of Hain Celestial Group.

No Huddle Offense

In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer offered his take on the horrific earnings from once-mighty tech giants Hewlett-Packard (HPQ - Get Report) and Dell (DELL). He likened them to Digital Equipment and Data General, the two tech titans of old, both now gone.

"Oh, how the mighty have fallen," said Cramer, as he recalled how Digital Equipment and Data General once ruled the tech world, only to disappear as newer, cheaper hardware made their offerings obsolete. Those new offerings were PCs, those made by International Business Machines (IBM), HP and upstart Dell to be specific.

But IBM made the smart move, said Cramer, divesting itself of the ailing PC business eight years ago. HP and Dell continued to hang on, and now we see the consequences. It's somewhat ironic that the remnants of Digital Equipment were sold to Compaq, now subsumed into HP, Cramer concluded. Rest in peace.
