Comcast Earnings Beat Estimates

"Unbelievable turnaround in the conference call." Cramer added, "Why profitable growth for all? That's what matters."

Comcast (CMCSA - Get Report) on Thursday reported first-quarter earnings that surpassed expectations, but revenue fell short.

The company reported revenue of $26.86 billion compared to the $27.2 billion analysts had forecasted.

3M Earnings Disappoint

"3M (MMM - Get Report) disappointed every single line on it and that's just unforgivable. I cannot condone that, that is, that is going zero in 16 I cannot condone it, and they do not get the first draft choice," Cramer said.

Shares of 3M tumbled after reporting a lower-than-expected quarterly profit, cut its 2019 earnings forecast and announced plans to lay off 2,000 workers.

Southwest Airlines

"Gary Kelly is either lucky or just one of the greatest operators ever because everything could go wrong with them. And it didn't matter," Cramer said.

Southwest Airlines (LUV - Get Report) first-quarter earnings took a hit from the prolonged grounding of the Boeing 737 Max jets that forced it to cancel more than 10,000 flights during the quarter.
