For an "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer again spoke with Beth Mooney, chairman and CEO of Keycorp (KEY) - Get KeyCorp Report , the regional bank which just posted a two-cents-a-share earnings beat with net interest margins up 54 basis points year-over-year. Shares of Key responded by falling 3.6% on the bank's tepid commentary for the rest of 2017.

Mooney said that while her guidance was conservative this quarter, Key remains positioned to profit from any increase in consumer confidence during the second half of the year. The bank still has work to do integrating its First Niagara merger, which closed last year, but is already seeing good value for its investment.

Mooney added that "we have everything we need to be successful and compete," including full-service mortgage origination, which it acquired with First Niagara. Those services can now be rolled out to Key's entire footprint, she said.

In addition, Key was also given permission by regulators to increase its dividend and reinstate an $800 million stock buyback program.

Cramer said that Key Corp shares had run up too far ahead of the quarter and investors aren't likely to get another opportunity to buy them this low again.
