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

Salesforce.com (CRM) : Cramer checked in with Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO of Salesforce.com, a stock that rose 4.8% after it reported strong quarterly results.

Benioff said that after dealing with currency headwinds and Brexit last quarter, Salesforce rallied back for a great third quarter and he's optimistic for the fourth quarter and for 2017. This quarter saw some exciting wins, including Morgan Stanley (MS) and PNC Financial (PNC) .

When asked about the election, Benioff said that everyone wants progress and there's nothing better than everyone moving forward together.

Benioff continued to have strong words for Microsoft (MSFT) , saying the tech industry won't stand for how Microsoft plans to handle LinkedIn data now that it has acquired the company.

Benioff reiterated that he feels Twitter (TWTR) is a great company, but he works in concert with his shareholders and they were not keen on the idea of an acquisition.

Wells Fargo (WFC)  : How do you know when a rally is the real deal? Keep your eye on the worst stock in the sector, Cramer told viewers. In the case of the banks, that would be definitely be the stock of Wells Fargo.

After a cross-selling scandal that culminated in the resignation of CEO John Stumpf, Cramer said, Wells Fargo had been gearing up for a big fight with Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren.

But suddenly we have a president who's not targeting the banks and a Senate that isn't likely too, either. And so shares of Wells Fargo went from $44 to $50.

Then today, Wells Fargo provided investors with an update and it wasn't good. Among other abysmal metrics were new account openings, which fell 44% from year-ago levels. Yet shares of Wells Fargo extended their rally, up 1.5% today.

That's how you spot a rally that's for real, Cramer concluded.
