Did you miss last night's "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are Jim Cramer's top takeaways for Monday's trading.
Brunswick (BC) - Get Report : In an exclusive interview, Cramer sat down with Dusty McCoy, chairman and CEO of Brunswick, the boat and fitness equipment maker that delivered a 7-cents-a-share earnings beat, yet saw its shares fall by 5%.
McCoy said Brunswick really operates in a different market than its competitors, one that is growing at 3% to 5% a year. That's why his company continues to see solid gross margin and growth in earnings per share.
One of the big drivers remains the replacement cycle for Brunswick products. McCoy said the company is just beginning what will be a big period for boat replacements, and the replacement cycle for fitness equipment is half that of boats, which is why he likes that business so much.
Cramer said while the movement in the stock is perplexing, Brunswick continues to make great products that people love.
Ethan Allen (ETH) - Get Report : In his second exclusive interview, Cramer sat down with Farooq Kathwari, chairman, president and CEO of Ethan Allen, which delivered a 10-cents-a-share earnings beat on a 7.3% rise in same-store sales. Ethan Allen also boosted its dividend by 21%.
Kathwari highlighted Ethan Allen's strong operating leverage as one of the factors contributing to performance. He said Ethan Allen is not in the furniture business but in the business of design and services. Ethan Allen's latest promotions focused on working personally with its network of 1,500 designers and was very successful.
Kathwari also commented on two new initiatives at Ethan Allen: a new Web site exclusively for those serving in the Army and Air Force, and also a partnership with Walt Disney (DIS) - Get Report to help bring the magic of Disney into your home.
Cramer said he expects this quarter to be the first of many good ones for Ethan Allen.
