Did you miss last night's "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are Jim Cramer's top takeaways for next week's trading.
BofI Holdings (BOFI) With shares of the self-proclaimed Bank of the Internet nearly cut in half since its October highs, is it time to invest or run? That was the question Cramer answered for viewers.
Shares of BofI were up 71% in 2012 and another 182% in 2013 before pausing in 2014, only to resume its upward trajectory until October 2015. Being a virtual bank, BofI was a lean, mean growth machine and was even able to acquire the banking assets of H&R Block (HRB) - Get Report .
But then on Oct. 13 of last year, allegations were raised that BofI was cutting regulatory corners. That news, although unfounded, have been keeping investors away ever since.
Cramer had a different take, however, saying the bank's solid 2-cents earnings beat in January proves that there is still growth left and once H&R Block's assets kick in this tax season, growth will be even stronger.
Cramer said Breen's proposed merger of DuPont and Dow Chemical (DOW) - Get Report could be a huge win for shareholders. Why? Because Breen did the same thing with Tyco (TYC) a little over a decade ago.
Back in 2002, Breen took the helm of Tyco, a conglomerate much like that of the combined Dow DuPont. Over the course of several year, Breen then sold over 21 business units and split the company into three parts, twice.
Shares of Tyco traded at $13.51 when Breen took the helm in 2002. Today they trade for $35.41 a share. But after accounting for all of the stock splits and spinoffs, Cramer calculated a overall gain of 1,228% over 14 years. Put another way, a $10,000 investment in Tyco in 2002 would be worth $120,000 today.
