When asked about the part technology plays in the company's growth, Doyle said Domino's is betting big on digital media and some weeks 50% of its orders come in from online and mobile sources. He said the company has over nine million fans on Facebook.
Finally, when asked about the controversy surrounding executive compensation, Doyle said that at Domino's executive pay is aligned with performance. If the shareholders are making money, so, too, is the management team. If they're not, there will be no bonuses.
Cramer said the Domino's story is as good as ever.
In his Thursday "Sell Block" segment, Cramer placed the entire 3-D printing industry, and in particular 3D Systems (DDD), under house arrest. These stocks have already been cut in half, he said, but they still have a lot further to go.
Shares of 3D Systems roared from $50 to $97 last year, Cramer said, but have since giving back all those gains. Why? Cramer said the rally was based largely on hype, on the promise that everyone would soon have a 3-D printer on their desks creating magnificent objects. The only problem: The machines that make the really magnificent objects still cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The affordable ones remain very limited.Then there's the issue of competition. Not only are dozens of 3-D players ramping up in China, but even Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) has announced it is getting into the 3-D space in June. Yet, shares of 3D Systems, even after its 50% haircut, still trade at 61 times earnings, or 7.4 times sales, and that's using estimates that are likely still too high. Putting it another way, Cramer said the entire 3-D printing industry is expected to generate $6.5 billion in 2018, yet 3D Systems is currently valued at $5.2 billion. With inventories rising and insiders selling, Cramer said this industry needs to be avoided at all costs. 3-D printing is proving to be a flash in the pan.
Executive Decision: Dinesh PaliwalIn his second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Dinesh Paliwal, chairman, president and CEO of Harman Industries (HAR), makers of high-end speakers and electronics, which today delivered a 12-cents-a-share earnings beat on dramatically higher revenue that rose 32%. Shares of Harman trade at just 22 times earning with a 22% growth rate.
