NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Every night, Jim Cramer sits down with CEOs and executives on his "Mad Money" show to discuss their business, the economy, politics and more. Today we look back at his recent interviews with Chuck Bunch, chairman and CEO of PPG (PPG), and Sandy Cutler, CEO of Eaton (ETN), two long-time Cramer faves in the industrial sector.
These are excerpts from Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap, originally published on Jan. 23 and Feb. 4, 2014.
Executive Decision: Chuck Bunch
For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Chuck Bunch, chairman and CEO of PPG, the specialty chemical maker that's seen its shares rise 358%, including reinvested dividends, since Cramer first got behind the company in June 2009.
Bunch said that despite today's headlines, he feels good about PPG's prospects in China. He said business remains good and the company expects a solid first quarter from the region.
In addition to China, Bunch is also bullish on America, saying that U.S. commercial construction is finally making a comeback, albeit a slow one. He said things are improving regionally, with the south being the strongest U.S. region at the moment.
Finally, there was also positive news from another troubled region of the globe, Europe, where Bunch noted that PPG saw an encouraging fourth quarter with no volume declines. He said the European auto business is starting to show signs of life, which is very encouraging.
