Shares of Agilent Technologies Inc. (A) are up 3.25% to $61.31 in early Wednesday trading. The company beat on earnings-per-share estimates and revenue expectations, paving the way for shares to hit new 52-week highs.
These were some "tremendous numbers" from Agilent, a company that was a spinoff of HP Inc. (HPQ) , TheStreet's founder Jim Cramer, who also manages the Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust portfolio, said on CNBC's "Stop Trading" segment.
The stock's gain may come as little surprise to some readers of TheStreet. In fact, if you missed the big move in January, there was another chance in March. Revenue grew 7% and earnings jumped 41%. Cash flows also improved, climbing 18%. "They've always been one of my favorites," Cramer said of Agilent.
"Congratulations to them for continuing to defy gravity," he concluded. Shares are now up 34.5% on the year.
