Lam Research: Cramer's Top Takeaways

Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.

For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer again sat down with Martin Anstice, CEO at semiconductor equipment maker Lam Research (LRCX) , which just concluded an analyst day. The company doubled its dividend and boosted its stock buyback program, and shares responded up 4.9% by the close.

Anstice explained that our world has an insatiable appetite for data and data is disrupting every part of our lives. Behind all of that data is silicone and behind silicone is Lam Research, which is helping the world gain insights and take actions from the growing mountain of data being collected.

From climate change and education to autonomous vehicles and smart infrastructure, the key drivers are connectivity, the cloud and costs, Anstice said, and Lam is a leader in all three areas.

We're in a different world, Anstice concluded, noting that Lam is a different company in a different industry than it was decades ago, when everything hinged on PC sales and created huge boom and bust cycles.

Cramer and the AAP team say that the Nordstrom (JWN) family's $50 offer is the just the floor of negotiations. Find out what they're telling their investment club members and get in on the conversation with a free trial subscription to Action Alerts PLUS.
