Jim Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: The Bulls Pulled It Out Today

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

There should've been a market decline today. It didn't come, and that's a clue things are better than you think, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Tuesday. Stocks should have fallen because of many geopolitical concerns around the globe, Cramer continued, but the market wants to go higher.

There were many sectors on the move today, including oil, where prices rose and sent Schlumberger (SLB - Get Report) up 2.1% and CoreLabs (CLB - Get Report) up 3.2%.

Restaurants and retail were also strong, with Nordstrom (JWN - Get Report) rebounding, along with Home Depot (HD - Get Report) and a strong showing from Dollar Tree (DLTR - Get Report) , up 6.6%.

Over in the food sector, Campbell Soup (CPB) rallied 3% on its cost-cutting initiatives, while Hormel Foods (HRL) shot up 2.9% on strong results.

Other sectors on the move included tech, cyber security, biotech and the natural winners from political unrest, the defense stocks.

The markets should've been crushed today, Cramer concluded. The fact we saw so many bulls is a very good sign.

Executive Decision: Irwin Simon

For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Irwin Simon, president and CEO of Hain Celestial (HAIN) , the natural and organic food maker that's seen its shares plunge 42% from the 52-week high to near the 52-week low on fears of stagnating sales.

Simon said there's never been more demand for natural and organic foods, but there's also never been as much competition. He said consumers are demanding healthier foods but Hain still needs to spend more on its brands to help spread the word.

Simon is bullish on Hain's outlook, saying gross margins and profits are both on the rise, and the breadth of their strength is stemming from food as well as Hain's personal care, snacks and protein products.

When asked about slumping sales at Walmart (WMT) , Simon said the retailer is in turnaround mode and is trying new merchandising strategies, some of which did not do as well as expected.

Simon reminded viewers that healthy eating is not fad and is a trend that's here to stay. Cramer agreed.
