Did you miss "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Brian Jordan, chairman, president and CEO of First Horizon National (FHN) , shares of which fell 2.7% after the company reported earnings earlier Thursday. Shares of First Horizon are up 20% since the election in November.
Jordan said he's getting mixed messages from his customers. On one hand, they remain optimistic and loan demand continues to be strong. On the other hand, some of the post-election euphoria has subsided and there is now a disconnect between consumer confidence and small business' willingness to borrow and expand.
But even without Washington's help, Jordan said, he's confident in First Horizon's ability to grow loans and profitability. He was bullish about their recent acquisition of Coastal Securities, which closed on April 3.
When asked what he'd like to see from Washington, Jordan said that lower taxes and deregulation would help the most, more than dealing with health-care legislation.
Cramer said he remains a fan of this great regional bank.
