HAIN data by YCharts

Hain Celestial (HAIN) - Get Free Report : In an exclusive interview, Cramer sat down with Irwin Simon, president and CEO at Hain Celestial, the natural and organic food maker that's seen its shares plunge 42% from the 52-week high to near the 52-week low on fears of stagnating sales.

Simon said there's never been more demand for natural and organic foods, but there's also never been as much competition. He said consumers are demanding healthier foods but Hain still needs to spend more on its brands to help spread the word.

Simon is bullish on Hain's outlook, saying gross margins and profits are both on the rise, and the breadth of their strength is stemming from food as well as Hain's personal care, snacks and protein products.

When asked about slumping sales at Walmart (WMT) - Get Free Report , Simon said the retailer is in turnaround mode and is trying new merchandising strategies, some of which did not do as well as expected.

Simon reminded viewers that healthy eating is not fad and is a trend that's here to stay. Cramer agreed.

J.M. Smucker (SJM) - Get Free ReportReal turnarounds don't just happen overnight, Cramer reminded viewers, and they can often be a bumpy road. That was certainly the case with J.M. Smucker, which may have caught the short-sellers off guard when the company reported spectacular earnings but should have been crystal clear to savvy investors who had done their homework.

The turnaround at Smucker has been years in the making, Cramer noted. The company has been making a series of smart acquisitions to turn itself into a three-legged stool of food products, coffee and, most recently, pet food. The company's coffee leg stumbled a bit in 2014, causing many investors to give up hope.

But astute investors noted the chart of Smucker has been on the rise since June 2014 because the company has been successful introducing new flavors and new extensions as well as taking advantage of the natural and organic movement.

All of this led up to this quarter, where the company delivered an 11-cents-a-share earnings beat and was able to raise guidance to boot. Cramer said the announcement of a secondary offering of stock represents a buying opportunity because previous secondaries have all done well.

Palo Alto Networks (PANW) - Get Free Report : In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer proclaimed that "hack is back," referring to the strong results at Palo Alto Networks that sent shares up a quick 6.3%.

Cramer said that Palo Alto has always been the best of breed in the cyber security space, but during a period when high-profile data breaches have died down it's clear that Palo Alto is still the one that's winning.

In addition to the company's 61% billings growth, Palo Alto management called out rival -- and AAP holding -- Cisco Systems (CSCO) - Get Free Report by name, claiming Palo Alto is winning deals against the tech heavyweight.
