Jim Cramer's Mad Dash: Lands' End's 'Amazing' Earnings Report

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Friday the 13th has turned out to be a busy news day in the financial world. On CNBC's "Cramer's Mad Dash" segment, TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, was focused on retail. 

Specifically, he was looking at Lands' End (LE), which reported its first earnings report as a public company and it "turned out to be amazing."

CEO Edgar Huber and the company's board members are "brilliant," he added. The company has a good balance sheet, the brand isn't tarnished, and the management is extraordinary. 

Turning to Express (EXPR), Sycamore Partners, a private equity firm, took a 10% stake in the struggling retailer and is looking to possibly acquire the company in full. 

Express is too niche right now, Cramer said, adding that it if it were paired with other apparel companies, it could be "very powerful."
