On Thursday, shares of Dominion Resources closed lower, down $0.51, or 1.80% to $27.89. Shares of Joy Global closed lower, down $0.86, or 4.90% to $16.69. Cramer interviewed Tom Farrell, chairman, president and CEO of Dominion Resources. Farrell announced that Dominion's directors and officers just purchased 75,000 shares of the company's stock because they feel the shares are under valued. Regarding President Obama's cap-and-trade initiatives, Farrell said Dominion should fare well, as the company is already in the bottom third of utilities when it comes to carbon intensity. Cramer called Dominion an Obama resistant utility and said if company management is buying shares, then he's buying too. Below, Dan Fitzpatrick ( RealMoney contributor) talks about Dominion in a video that appeared on TheStreet.com Thursday morning.

Sutherlin was upbeat, noting that while the company's top line growth is slowing, Joy Global is increasingly focusing on efficiency and improving the bottom line.
