Did you miss Mad Money on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
For an "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Geoff Ballotti, CEO of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts (WH) - Get Report , the new spinoff from Wyndham Worldwide (WYND) - Get Report , which operates 8,400 locations under the Wyndham, Ramada, Super 8, Days Inn, and Howard Johnson brands, among others.
Ballotti said that as an independent company, investors in Wyndham Hotel can expect consistent income that will include a $300 million stock buyback and the $1-a-share dividend that the company announced Monday. It also frees the company to do more transformational deals, such as their purchase of LaQuinta for $1.95 billion announced in January of this year.
When asked about his business, Ballotti explained that they're seeing demand for new hotels around the globe and with 20 different brands, their franchisees are seeing plenty of opportunities to grow with their company like never before. Younger consumers today want upscale properties for economy prices, Ballotti added, and that's what Wyndham provides and part of the reason why they're opening two hotels a day, everyday.
