Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
Green said his bank has always been about building long-term relationships. While some people see Cullen/Frost as making energy loans, he sees it as loaning to people in the energy business.
When asked about the recent weakness in the company stock, Green said that investors have underestimated the strength and diversity of the Texas economy. He said they also discount their customers' ability and willingness to deleverage during downturns. When you deal in relationships and not transactions, you can help your customers thrive in any environment, he said.
Turning to the topic of interest rates, Green said the last rate hike didn't do much to increase deposit rates, but it did translate into 20 cents a share in earnings for Cullen/Frost. He expects future rate hikes to also have positive impacts.
And when asked about what he's hearing from customers, Green said that the attitude has been markedly better since the election and there is clear momentum growing.
