Netflix (NFLX) - Get Netflix, Inc. Report: In an exclusive interview, Cramer sat down with Reed Hastings, chairman, president and CEO of streaming giant Netflix, a stock that's up another 100% so far this year.

Hastings said the the Internet is transforming so many sectors in our economy and TV is one of them. He said Internet TV is a significant player now, but in a few years it will be all of TV.

When asked about his company's bet on original programming, Hastings said they've made good bets on valuable franchises and so far have been very successful. Through the company's machine-learning algorithms, he said it can tell pretty quickly whether a show is a hit with viewers.

Machine learning also helps Netflix become very personal, Hastings added, allowing the company to make great recommendations on what you're likely to want to watch next.

Bhusri said Wall Street has been paying too much attention to the company's billings from quarter to quarter and not looking at the bigger picture over the long run. Workday is focused on taking advantage of its position to grow market share and is not focused on profits.

He said that Wall Street tends to worry about companies that are not profitable, but in the case of Workday his company has $2 billion in cash and generates free cash flow every quarter, so it's not at risk of running out of money.

Bhusri was excited about Workday's new financial products, saying the pipeline doubled last quarter and companies like Netflix are already using them with great success.

Cramer said Workday remains a great opportunity for investors.
