Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
For his final "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer checked back in with Bryan Jordan, chairman, president and CEO of First Horizon National (FHN) - Get Report , for a fresh take on the regional banks. First Horizon is currently the nation's fourth largest regional bank.
Jordan said First Horizon's 33% dividend boost is both a sign of growth and profitability now, and also a signal that the future is strong. He said the integration of Capital Bank continues and will help them expand into even more geographies outside of Tennessee.
First Horizon is seeing a pickup in lending, Jordan said, partly from deregulation, partly from tax reforms and also partly from a pickup in consumer sentiment.
Finally, Jordan said, things continue to go well in the company's home state of Tennessee, which has a dynamic economy thanks to its low-tax status. The state currently has no income tax, which makes it attractive for many industries.
