Off the Tape
With Valentine's Day just a week away, Cramer went "Off The Tape" to speak with Neil Clark Warren, founder, chairman and CEO of the privately held eHarmony, the online matchmaking service that's about to expand into exciting new areas like matchmaking for your next job.
Warren said that it's taken eHarmony 40 years to figure out how people come together for a lifetime. Now that it has a good idea of what works, the company is excited to expand into new areas.
Warren went on to explain that 65% of people with jobs say they don't like the ones they have, and eHarmony may have a way to fix that. He said it all hinges on companies providing more insights into the jobs they need filled, along with the types of people they need to fill them and to whom they report for that job. With that information, eHarmony should be able to do the rest.When asked what really creates chemistry between two people or a person and a job, Warren said that eHarmony has identified 29 dimensions that play a factor. He said if people have similar ambitions, values, intellect and humor, there's a much higher chance of real chemistry happening. Cramer said that while eHarmony is not a publicly traded company, he sure wishes it was.
No Huddle OffenseIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer opined on the difference between Yelp (YELP), which saw its shares soar 19%, and Twitter (TWTR), whose shares plummeted 24%, in the recent session. Cramer explained that these stocks are the perfect example of under-promising and over-delivering versus over-promising and falling significantly short. For Yelp, it's all about revenue growth, which is why its announcement of accelerating revenue growth was met with such enthusiasm. But for Twitter, the metric to watch, we were told, was user growth, and that metric slowed as Twitter simply attracted fewer new users to its platform last quarter. Cramer said Twitter needs to get back on the growth path soon or its shares will never again see the multiple they were getting just a few days ago.
