Lightning Round

In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Morgan Stanley ( MS), Gentex ( GNTX) and Lowes ( LOW).

Cramer was bearish on Exxon Mobil ( XOM), PhotoMedex ( PHMD), Home Depot ( HD) and Aeropostale ( ARO).

Executive Decision: Susan Salka

In the second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down in studio with Susan Salka, president and CEO of AMN Healthcare Services ( AHS), a health care staffing and cost contentment provider to hospitals.

Salka noted that AMN has been diversifying itself to become less economically sensitive. She said what started out as merely a temporary staffing agency is now a full-service staffing solutions provider for those in the medical profession. Using AMN's services, Salka explained that hospitals can run leaner with less staff while still retaining the ability to flex up when demand arises.

When asked about the effects of the new Affordable Care Act, Salka said that in the short term, she sees little effect from the law, but over the longer term, many hospitals and other medical facilities are planning for increased staffing needs to handle an influx of patients.

Cramer said that he believes AMN will be a big story in 2014.

No Huddle Offense

In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer sounded off against the hideous quarter posted by Cisco ( CSCO), a stock that Cramer owned for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , before selling its entire position today.

Cramer said that he and many others are wrong to put their faith in Cisco, which is clearly pushing the wrong products to the wrong people in the wrong markets at the wrong time. That said, it's also clear that business in just about every emerging market on the planet has fallen off a cliff.

Cramer said that despite the U.S. having the most dysfunctional, anti-business government, it still manages to outshine the rest of the world, which is exactly why our markets are thriving while others are ailing.
