Shares of Paychex (PAYX) - Get Paychex, Inc. Report are climbing Tuesday, up about 3.5% and within a stone's throw of new 52-week highs. The company beat on earnings per share and revenue expectations. Management also raised its full-year guidance for revenue and operating income.

The company reported a "magnificent" result and the guidance raise was important as well, TheStreet's Jim Cramer said on CNBC's "Stop Trading" segment.

Cramer also took to a recent research report from the analysts at Citi, who issued a sell rating on Sept. 29. The analyst argued that shares of Paychex remain overvalued and as a result, assigned a price target of $53. Sometimes sell ratings don't work out very well and this is a very good example of that, he reasoned.

Now Paychex is off to the races, he said, joking that perhaps the research report would now be best served as kindling for a fire. "It's got to be good for something," Cramer added.

Many thought Paychex would be a huge winner under the new White House administration. Higher interest rates, a stronger economy and an improved employment situation all benefit Paychex and its bottom line. However, shares have not traded the way many thought, nearly hitting a 52-week low in mid-August.
