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.

HELE Chart
HELE data by YCharts

Helen of Troy (HELE): Sometimes the most incredible companies are ones you've never heard of, like this the consumer packaged-goods maker with brands OXO, Vicks, Pur, Braun and Dr. Scholls.

Cramer said Helen of Troy has been flying under the Wall Street radar for quite some time, but that may be about to change after the company posted two blowout quarters in a row, sending its shares up over 50% for the year.

Helen of Troy has been posting incredible numbers thanks to innovative new products. The company is also making smart acquisitions to boost its bottom line even more as it continues to take market share and aisle space at your local retailers.

This little $2.8 billion company trades at just 17 times earnings, while its larger peers including Clorox (CLX) are fetching 22 times earnings. Cramer said that disparity is about to change because Helen of Troy is an incredibly well-run company that is doing so well it's bound to start attracting some attention.

Proofpoint (PFPT), Imperva (IMPV) and Fortinet (FTNT): With spending on cyber security continuing to grow like a weed, why not take a chance of some of the lesser-known cyber security names?

Proofpoint is a company that's similar to CyberArc (CYBR), protecting a network's privileged accounts from attacks by blocking spam and viruses from entering. The company is not yet profitable but expects to break even next year. Shares of Proofpoint are up 39% in 2015 and trade at 8.3 times sales, which is not cheap but still less expensive than its larger peers.

Imperva is in the data protection market, helping companies comply with regulations and making sure security protocols are being followed. Shares are up 37% for 2015 and trade at 8.2 times sales.

Finally, there's Fortinet, a more established cyber player that is profitable and growing revenue by 22%. Shares trade at 64 times earnings, which is expensive but still better than the rocketing Palo Alto Networks (PANW) and CyberArc. 

WFC Chart

Wells Fargo (WFC), Facebook (FB) and WhiteWave Foods (WWAV): Cramer went "Off the Charts" with the help of colleague Tim Collins to discover that these three Action Alerts PLUS holdings have strong technicals as well as fundamentals. Cramer said he's be a buyer of all these stocks, especially on any weakness.
