Newell Brands (NWL) : In an exclusive interview, Cramer spoke with Michael Polk, CEO of Newell Brands, the Action Alerts Plus holding that just posted a mixed quarter with a five-cents-a-share earnings beat on weaker-than-expected revenue.

Polk said that he's proud of Newell's most recent results, which include the company's acquisition of Jarden. He said despite the tremendous change in Newell's portfolio of brands and the reorganization of the company, they were still able to deliver solid growth.

In the end, Polk said, Newell remains a household goods company, one that's focused on making millions of consumers' lives better every day. They continue to focus on areas like baby products and writing, as well as with their former namesake, Rubbermaid, where new innovative products continue to keep food fresher for longer.

Integrating all of Jarden's great brands will take longer than 90 days, Polk added. Cramer said that as he looks at the long-term prospects of the combined company, he shares that sentiment.

Arconic: In his second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Klaus Kleinfeld, chairman and CEO of Arconic, the engineered products spinoff of Alcoa (AA) that is scheduled to begin trading as an independent company Tuesday under the ticker ARNC.

Kleinfeld said that Arconic will remain primarily an aircraft company, working with all of the leading manufacturers on new products and innovations. Nearly 90% of all the aluminum flying today was invented by Alcoa, Kleinfeld noted. Arconic will also extend beyond aluminum into titanium, nickel and composites as well.

When asked about the longevity of the aerospace bull market, Kleinfeld said that manufacturers are seeing order books extend out nine years thanks to new innovations and increased energy efficiency of new planes.

Arconic will also be a big player in the automotive industry, where Kleinfeld touted the new all-aluminum Ford (F) F-150 pickup as just one of many coming innovations in that sector.

Brunswick (BC) : In his third and final "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer talked with Mark Schwabero, chairman and CEO of Brunswick, the boating and exercise equipment maker.

Schwabero said that Brunswick is often compared to different industries, but currently his company derives 50% of sales from marine products and another 19% from fitness products. Consumers want recreation and family time, Schwabero said, and boating is the perfect activity for that. They also want to live long, healthy lives, he said, and Brunswick has products for that as well.

Schwabero touted Brunswick's purchase of fitness equipment maker Cybex for $195 million by saying the combination of the No. 1 and No. 5 player in the space affords them plenty of opportunities for the future. Brunswick has always been a premium provider of things like treadmills for commercial applications, and Cybex complements that portfolio.

When asked about the domestic and international economies, Schwabero said that some areas like Brazil and the Middle East remain weak, but here at home, he expects to see things pick up once the uncertainty of the election has passed.
