NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Did you miss last night's "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are Jim Cramer's top takeaways for today's trading.

Shake Shack (SHAK): Don't believe the headlines, Shake Shack is a stock you can own for the long term, Cramer told viewers, as he once again reiterated that the burger chain founded by restauranteur and author Danny Meyer continues to defy the skeptics and roar higher.

FireEye (FEYE): Cyber security has become a "must have" for companies, Cramer learned, as he sat down with David DeWalt, chairman and CEO of FireEye, the cyber security company whose stock has risen 35% so far this year as cyber attacks continue to dominate the headlines.

DeWalt said that America is increasingly vulnerable to attack and hackers are getting more and more interested in all sorts of data, from healthcare to retail, media to financial services. It's a big problem, he said, and only getting worse.

That's why there's a lot of interest in FireEye and in cyber security in general, DeWalt noted. FireEye have been able to grow 10x in just three years and continues to be on a strong path of organic growth as security goes from a "nice to have" to a "must have."

Cramer said companies need to step up and protect themselves and in a few years every business will have cyber security in place.

WBA Chart

Walgreens Boots (WBA) and Rite-Aid (RAD): The health care sector is ripe for consolidation, Cramer told viewers, and that includes the drugstores like Walgreens, a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, and Rite-Aid.

After today's announcement that CVS Health (CVS) is snapping up a health care provider for seniors, it will likely only be a matter of time before these two rivals make their next move to compete.
