Why Jim Cramer Likes T-Mobile (TMUS) Stock Under CEO John Legere

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer says sometimes a company's management is so great it blows you away, which he says is the case with John Legere at T-Mobile  (TMUS).

Cramer, who has disliked T-Mobile under previous management, has been a fan of Legere's for a long time and turned aggressively to the buy side on T-Mobile when he heard the company got Legere. Cramer calls Legere a "disruptive force" and "a different kind of executive" who understands the zeitgeist of youth.

Cramer calls the numbers Legere just put up extraordinary and says T-Mobile is a growth telephone company in the mid to high single digits, which investors do not get very often. Therefore, he feels the stock can continue to rise.

Cramer says Legere does not need to merge with Sprint  (S), but he can if he wants to do so, and states there are multiple ways for T-Mobile to win.
