In an "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer also sat down with Gary Dickerson, president and CEO of Applied Materials (AMAT) - Get Free Report , a stock that popped 6% yesterday and another 3.6% today after the company's bullish analyst day.

Dickerson started off by saying that things have never been better at Applied Materials. He said semiconductors are becoming more pervasive in our world and their value as a company in that world is increasing every year. No matter what product you're looking at, from TVs to smartphones, they're all made with Applied Materials.

Dickerson continued by saying that many investors have long memories for the boom-and-bust years of PCs, but in today's market, big data and artificial intelligence are driving high-performance computing that doesn't suffer from these cycles. Whether it's healthcare, transportation or entertainment, there's tremendous demand for different kinds of chips and more powerful chips.

Cramer told investors to own and not trade Applied Materials, a company which he said remains a great long-term story.
