Shares of Newell Brands (NWL) - Get Newell Brands Inc Report are soaring Monday, climbing 11% after the company beat on earnings per share and revenue expectations for the most recent quarter. 

Newell also raised its dividend a whopping 21% and increased its full-year earnings outlook, TheStreet's Jim Cramer said on CNBC's "Mad Dash" segment. 

Cramer manages the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, in which Newell Brands is a holding. 

CEO Michael Polk delivered, he said, explaining that this stock has struggled because Newell had run into problems with its distribution channels. Like many others, Amazon's (AMZN) - Get Amazon.com, Inc. Report ever-increasing presence had begun to hurt Newell.

Since Polk had figured out the company's channel problems and delivered, the stock is off to the races. It had been a bit of a bumpy road after Newell acquired Jarden, but management has scrapped the businesses it didn't like and kept the ones that are doing well, Cramer said. 

Now, Newell suddenly has growth in a consumer packaged-goods sector that has very little growth. Newell is beating its peers, Cramer said. The company is "on fire."
