CLB data by YCharts

Core Labs (CLB) - Get Core Laboratories NV Report: Cramer spoke with David Demshur, chairman, president and CEO of Core Labs to find out how this scientist in the oil patch could have a stock that's up 40% in just the past three months.

Demshur explained that when it comes to Core Labs' reservoir mapping services, these are multi-year, multi-billion-dollar projects that don't simply go away based on the short-term fluctuations in oil prices. That's how Core Labs continues to post strong, consistent earnings.

Turning to U.S. oil production, Demshur said the current output of 9.2 million barrels a day will likely fall below nine million barrels by the end of 2015, with much of that decline stemming from shale wells, which deplete more rapidly than traditional wells.

That will lead to a V-shaped recovery for oil prices, Demshur predicted, with West Texas oil prices returning to $70 a barrel.

Commerce Bancshares (CBSH) - Get Commerce Bancshares, Inc. Report: Cramer spoke with David Kemper, chairman and CEO of Commerce Bank, a regional bank serving the midwest that is posting solid gains as it awaits higher interest rates from the Federal Reserve.

Kemper said the business environment is good in the areas the bank serves, with lower energy prices helping to triple their loan growth in recent months. While others are pulling out of markets such as Oklahoma and Colorado, Commerce is expanding operations.

Kemper also said that Commerce has a strong core deposit base, along with the size and agility to offer their customers a better value proposition than the competition.


QLIK data by YCharts

In a third "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Lars Bjork, CEO of Qlik Technologies (QLIK) , maker of user-driven business intelligence products. Shares of Qlik rose 4.8% on the day to new 52-week highs and are up 25% since Cramer last checked in with the company 13 months ago.

Bjork explained that Qlik has a relentless focus on making products that are easy to use. If they're not easy to use, people won't use them, he continued, and that's why Qlik can beat companies like IBM (IBM) - Get International Business Machines Corporation Report nine times out of 10.

In addition to selling to customers directly, Qlik also employs over 1,700 partners in 100 countries around the globe to help get the products in the hands of customers. That's why even in Europe, sales are strong. There's no better time to optimize your company than when things are slow, Bjork added.

Cramer reiterated his buy recommendation on Qlik.
