Jim Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Retail Is Better Than You Think

Engles said America's tastes are changing; thanks to the more savvy younger demographic, families everywhere are beginning to embrace healthier eating. That's why brands like Horizon, Silk and Earthbound Farm continue to see strong growth.

Horizon is a brand that families trust, said Engles, which is why the company continues to only put that brand name to products that are family- and kid-centric. Meanwhile, WhiteWave's Silk brand continues to be a leader in non-dairy milk products made from soy and almonds.

Engles also had positive things to say about his company's partnerships in China. He said as China moves up the economic ladder, its people are demanding more protein in their diets, which plays into WhiteWave's portfolio of organic products.

Cramer reiterated his recommendation of WhiteWave Foods.

Executive Decision: Dan Hesse

In his second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Dan Hesse, CEO of Sprint (S), our nation's number three wireless carrier. Shares of Sprint are down 22% in 2014 after a strong performance in 2013.

Hesse said that by the middle of 2014 Sprint will have completed about two-thirds of its network upgrade, one that is seeing the complete replacement of the old Sprint network. That will mean some short-term pain, Hesse continued, adding that investors understand that a world-class network will take time to complete.

When asked about the competitive landscape, Hesse said the U.S. market is still a duopoly, with two strong players and then everyone else. A market with three strong players would be much better for consumers, he said.

Turning to the topic of growth, Hesse noted that tablets and wearables, such as watches and other add-on accessories, have been the real drivers of growth for Sprint as the smartphone market begins to mature.

Lightning Round

In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on TransCanada (TRP), Micron Technology (MU), American Tower (AMT) and Starbucks (SBUX).

Cramer was bearish on Progressive Corp (PGR), Capstead Mortgage (CMO) and Enbridge (ENB).
