Executive DecisionIn the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Scott Wine, CEO of Polaris Industries (PII), makers of snowmobiles, off-road vehicles and motorcycles. Polaris delivered a 13-cents-a-share earnings beat on a strong 20% rise in revenue. Shares of Polaris are up 32% since Cramer first featured the company in January. Wines said that Polaris relies on a strong economy to perform well, which is why he's closely watching the U.S. election for clarity on the "fiscal cliff," rising taxes and above all, increased regulations. He said with major changes in any of those areas Polaris may have difficulty delivering the strong results it has been seeing. Beyond politics, Wine credited innovation for Polaris' strong results. He said the company spends 4% of revenue on innovation, which has yielded a strong pipeline of new products that customers really enjoy. Wine said whether it's a vehicle for recreation or a utility vehicle for a home, farm or business, Polaris simply has the vehicle to meet customers' needs.
