Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
In an "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Anders Gustafsson, CEO of Zebra Technologies Corp. (ZBRA) - Get Report , which just posted a monster 51-cents-a-share earnings beat, sending shares up a quick 11% yesterday.
Zebra Technologies was an integral, yet invisible, part of this year's Super Bowl, Gustafsson said, as his company's technology tracked every movement of every player, referee and the ball itself. He explained that players had two sensors under each shoulder pad, while the ball held a chip that weighed three grams under the laces. These sensors provided positioning coordinates 10 times a second on every play.
Beyond sports, Gustafsson explained that Zebra's core business is productivity enhancement. Zebra provides the foundational technology many businesses need to get their work done efficiently. Healthcare has become the company's fastest growing vertical, as mistakes with medication or testing can be fatal if not done correctly.
Zebra is also shoring up its balance sheet by paying down debt. The company had a debt to earnings ratio of five times, Gustafsson explained, but they're now down to 2.8 times and continue to head to their target range of 2.0 to 2.5 times.
