Did you miss last night's "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are Jim Cramer's top takeaways for today's trading.
Constellation Brands (STZ) - Get Report : In an exclusive interview, Cramer sat down with Rob Sands, president and CEO at Constellation Brands, the wine and spirits maker that has posted a 44% gain for the year.
Sands said there have been a lot of changes at Constellation over the past seven years but the company's strength continues to stem from its terrific portfolio of brands. He said the ability to offset rising costs comes from the growth the brands are able to provide.
When asked about cultivating its brands, Sands said drinkability always comes first followed by the consistency of the company's messaging around those brands.
One recent bright spot for Constellation has been Ballast Point, the craft brewer the company acquired for $1 billion. Ballast Point is now among the hottest brands, Sands noted.
Cramer said Constellation remains a company doing all the right things.
Henry Schein (HSIC) - Get Report : In his second exclusive "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Stanley Bergman, chairman and CEO of Henry Schein, the dental supply company with shares up 13% in 2015 thanks, in part, to a $400 million stock buyback announced earlier this year.
Bergman said the Affordable Care Act is helping a lot of Americans get health care from a primary care doctor, which is translating to more prevention and wellness overall.
Bergman is also bullish on his company's investments into pet care. He said the vet practice management software is doing very well as are the company's recent investments to help pet owners make sure their pets are taking prescribed medication.
Finally, Bergman and Cramer discussed the effects of a strong U.S. dollar. Bergman explained that while his company grew by 10%, it could have grown by 15% if not for the currency headwinds.
In a world worried about interest rates and growth in China, Cramer said Henry Schein is among the most steady of growers.
Encana (ECA) - Get Report , Genworth Financial (GNW) - Get Report and U.S. Steel (X) - Get Report : In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer opined on Encana, Genworth Financial and U.S. Steel, three stocks that seemingly go down every day, with no end in sight.
The common thread among these three is they all took on too much debt and are now struggling to pay, Cramer said. Even U.S. Steel, which has seen itself in dire straights before only to recover, has now beaten down so far that getting off the ropes seems nearly impossible.
