In his final "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer also spoke with Nick Akins, chairman, president and CEO of American Electric Power (AEP) - Get Free Report , the Action Alerts PLUS holding with a 3.7% dividend yield.

Akins started off by saying that after guiding earnings growth higher to between 5% and 7%, American Electric Power fully plans to keep its promise to move the dividend higher to match their earnings growth.

Turning to the economy, Akins said that last quarter saw a pickup in activity in oil and gas, autos, construction and health care in their service areas.

When asked about Donald Trump's pro-fossil-fuel stance, Akins said that there's already transformation underway toward a cleaner energy environment. Natural gas and renewable energy will remain the preferred sources of power going forward, he said, but Trump's stance on coal will help keep that fuel in the portfolio.

Akins was more bullish on Trump's efforts to renew American manufacturing, however, and said that with the shackles being taken off, manufacturing will help support commercial and residential activity as well.
