Fitbit (FIT) - Get Free Report: Cramer called Fitbit "one of the hottest IPOs of the year." After surging 50% in its first day of trading, the stock tacked on another 9.5% on Friday. It has unbelievable growth and is already profitable, which is a big deal for a newly public company. In addition, the valuation is attractive. Despite the big rally the stock is still a bargain, Cramer said.

Johnson Controls (JCI) - Get Free Report: Cramer sat down with Johnson Controls CEO Alex Molinaroli. The company makes components for automobiles, has a strong battery business and is also exposed to the residential and non-residential construction market.

Molinaroli said one-third of all car batteries in the world are made by Johnson Controls, yet most investors don't think twice about the company as an energy storage play. The non-residential construction market has also been paying off very nicely, as the economy continues to improve.

Much of the recent focus has been on the company's decision to spin off its automotive seating business, which is ranked number one when it comes to global market share. Molinaroli said the spinoff is an operational move in an effort to create value.
