HAIN Chart

Hain Celestial (HAIN) : Cramer once again checked in with Irwin Simon, chairman, president and CEO of Hain Celestial (HAIN) , the natural and organic food provider whose stock has risen over 500% since Cramer first took notice in September 2005, but also one that has fallen over 10% from its March highs.

Simon told Cramer he was very pleased with Hain's most recent quarter, which included 19% revenue growth, but Hain is not a quarter-to-quarter story. Hain, he said, is changing the way the world eats and is taking its cues from the 93 million Milennials demanding things such as GMO-free products.

When asked, "Are farmers getting it?" Simon replied that one of Hain's biggest challenges is procuring fresh ingredients and building the infrastructure needed to support its operations. But even as farmers are converting their fields to organic in record numbers, demand is still outstripping supply.

PPG Chart

PPG Industries (PPG) : Cramer sat down with Chairman and CEO Chuck Bunch, one of Cramer's "Bankable 21" CEOs.

Bunch explained for many years PPG saw coatings as the company's best opportunity and made some tough decisions to focus all its efforts in that area. Now, PPG is the number one player in the global coatings market, all while being more diversified in products than ever before.

Technology and innovation remains at the heart of what PPG does because its customers in aerospace, automotive and marine coatings all demand increasingly better products. That's why PPG continues to be a key supplier to just about every major auto brand.

Turning to more financial matters, Bunch confirmed PPG has been able to refinance much of its debt in Europe, taking advantage of the region's low interest rates. Meanwhile, here at home, the company is offering up a 2:1 stock split next month to increase liquidity. It continues to focus on its dividend and stock buyback programs.

Spectra Energy (SE) : In his third exclusive interview, Cramer spoke with Greg Ebel, Spectra's chairman, president and CEO, about the oil pipeline company with a 4% dividend yield.

Ebel said pipelines will always be needed no matter the price of the commodities they transport. He said oil and natural gas will always need to move from the supply regions to the demand regions, which makes Spectra also always in demand.

Among Spectra's most notable recent projects are a new pipeline, the first in 30 years, to supply New York City with more natural gas. Spectra is also working on two projects to supply New England with more natural gas, as well as a project to bolster supplies in Philadelphia.
