Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Analyzing the Unexpected

Turning to the issue of health and safety, Grubman said the NFL recently donated $30 million to medical research because "it was the right thing to do." He said the league is constantly making improvements to the game to improve health and safety, but league officials are not medical experts and therefore rely on others to tell them what changes need to be made.

Finally, when asked about the price of attending a game, Grubman said that, believe it or not, what's most important at the league is not making profits, it's making the game better. Thus they're always trying to find ways to keep prices affordable for everyone.

Lightning Round

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

Pandora Media (P): "It has too many shorts in it and they don't have any earnings momentum."

Dunkin Brands (DNKN): "The quarter was just OK. McDonald's (MCD) is taking share from Dunkin."

LeapFrog (LF): "No, this one is always a bridesmaid and never bride. I don't want to buy it on takeover talk."

BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (BPT): "Many of these companies are cutting their dividends. That has people worried."

SBA Communications (SBAC): "I still like it and American Tower (AMT)."

Oil's Well At HollyFrontier

In a second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer also sat down with Michael Jennings, president and CEO of HollyFrontier (HFC), an oil refiner whose shares are up 70% so far this year.

Jennings started by noting HollyFrontier has delivered a 20% return on capital for over the past 10 years, proving the company has been doing a lot of things well for a long time. His company now has a structural advantage as the economics have changed. HollyFrontier is now closer to both the oil shale fields and the customers than any other refiner.

When asked about the price of gasoline, Jennings said that, overall, the price is fairly consistent across the nation, but thanks to the company's locations it is able to take advantage of heavy Canadian oil and other shale oils that price even lower than West Texas Intermediate oil, which only adds to the high margins.
