H&R Block (HRB): Now that tax season is winding down, Cramer sat down with Bill Cobb, president and CEO of H&R Block, which just reported an earnings beat of 6 cents a share after a successful tax season.
Cobb said H&R Block had a good year on all fronts, with do it yourself, or DIY, services in particular growing by double digits. The company continues to control expenses and paying a solid dividend of 2.5%.
One thing that is not going according to plan, however, is the company's planned sale of its banking division. Cobb said he and Block's shareholders are all frustrated with the regulatory delays, but he still expects the split to win regulatory approval eventually.
Turning to the issue of tax fraud, Cobb said the industry needs to do a lot more to protect taxpayers from having their identities stolen. H&R Block now offers a suite of services called Tax ID Shield, which will monitor and notify taxpayers if someone else files with the IRS using their Social Security number.
