Jim Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Good News Is Everywhere

Search Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" trading recommendations using our exclusive "Mad Money" Stock Screener.


NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- You can't deny the evidence: Things are looking pretty positive for the markets, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Thursday. Cramer said just about everything he's seeing coming out of Europe and the U.S. is positive, and that makes him a happy camper.

Staying negative in this market is getting tough, Cramer told viewers. Even in Europe, bond rates are amazingly low, Cramer said, and that makes U.S. stocks that pay dividends all the more attractive. Consumer confidence is also up in the EuroZone and with with today's two big mergers, things are starting to look up for European investors.

Back here in the U.S., there's also a lot to like, with Salesforce.com (CRM) receiving numerous upgrades after its strong quarter. Other growth names like Zillow (Z) , Yelp (YELP) and LinkedIn (LNKD) also ended the day higher.

Cramer was also impressed by the results from Splunk (SPLK) , Ross Stores (ROST) and Monster Beverage (MNST) .

There were certainly some disappoints on the day, mainly Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen (PLKI) , down 9%, and Blackhawk (HAWK) , down 10%, but Cramer said even these stocks won't likely stay down for long.

Executive Decision: Alan McKim

For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer welcomed back Alan McKim, chairman and CEO of Clean Harbors (CLH - Get Report) , the environmental cleanup company that posted a 14-cents-a-share earnings beat, sending share higher by 1.7%.

McKim attributed Clean Harbors' strong results to both improvements in the U.S. economy and his company's continued penetration into the oil and gas industry. He said even with drilling activity slowing down, Clean Harbors is still seeing good volumes from existing rigs.

When asked about the oil and gas side of its business, which Clean Harbors plans to spin off later this year, McKim said that segment has great growth potential and solid margins and will have a great future as a separate entity.

Cramer said he's still behind McKim and the new Clean Harbors because the company's business remains on track.
