Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Once Hated, Now Loved

Cramer said Medidata is an expensive stock, but like many other cloud computing companies the expensive only get more expensive as they rocket higher and higher.

A Serving of Restaurant Stocks

It's the same old story, Cramer told viewers: Companies that execute will see their stocks go higher, while those that drop the ball get punished by the markets. That was certainly evident in the restaurant stocks this quarter, Cramer noted, with several notable standouts.

Weak earnings from Ruby Tuesday (RT) and Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) took down many of the restaurant names today, but Cramer said that's a buying opportunity if investors choose the right stocks.

McDonald's (MCD) told investors that a weak consumer was to blame for its disappointing quarter, but Cramer said that in reality McDonald's was an outlier because Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) didn't have such complaints and posted store growth of 5.5%.

Panera Bread (PNRA) missed earnings by 3 cents a share but Cramer said the problem there appears to be just a problem serving so many customers. Panera is still set to grow its store count by 7% this year and its stock trades at just 20 times earnings with an 18% growth rate.

Cramer reiterated his buy on Domino's Pizza (DPZ) after talking to its CEO earlier this week, and was bullish on both Dunkin' Brands and Starbucks, saying that all three stocks are worth buying right here.

Lightning Round

In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Qualcomm (QCOM), Noble Energy (NBL), Xerox (XRX), CVS Caremark (CVS), Walgreen (WAG) and CBRL Group (CBRL).

Cramer was bearish on Philip Morris International (PM), Rite Aid (RAD), Sony (SNE) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO).

Executive Decision: Nick Akins

In his second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Nick Akins, president and CEO of American Electric Power (AEP), which today posted a miss of 1 cent a share in earnings on flat revenue while reaffirming its full-year guidance. American Electric currently sports a 4.25% dividend yield.

Akins said that while the manufacturing segment of our economy continues to struggle, once it gets going again earnings will take off at American Electric thanks to the many investments it has made in infrastructure and cost cutting thus far. He said that earnings are split evenly between industrial, commercial and residential customers. While margins are lower on the industrial side, once that segment begins growing the other two quickly follow.
