In the category of "Best Newcomer," the honor goes not to Twitter (TWTR), but to Zulily (ZU - Get Report), the daily deals Web site for moms that is up 81% since its initial public offering. Cramer said Zulily is in a fabulous niche that could one day rival Amazon.com (AMZN) in its brand cache.
Gold Bulls, the Sequel
Continuing with his "Golden Bull Awards," Cramer gave the award for "Best Editing" to a company that "trimmed" its operations so it could be acquired for a hefty premium. That company is Beam (BEAM), which is now being acquired by the Japanese firm Suntory.
Cramer said that back in 2011 Beam's parent was worth $13 billion. Today, after several spinoffs that made this acquisition possible, the enterprise value of all the parts totals $25 billion.
Lightning RoundIn the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Lowe's (LOW), HollyFrontier (HFC), Tyson Foods (TSN) and FleetCor Technologies (FLT). Cramer was bearish on Transocean (RIG), ADT (ADT), SeaChange International (SEAC), Atmel (ATML) and Pinnacle Foods (PF).
