Growth managers should gobble this up, says Cramer

(Click for video linked to a searchable transcript of this Mad Money segment)

Cramer believes that certain stocks will thrive into year-end. This is certainly one of them.

That is, with the stock market making substantial gains broadly and individual stocks such as Netflix gaining more than 250% ytd, Cramer believes money managers will scour the market and snap up shares of winners that will make them look good to clients when they mail out statements at the end of the year.

Among the many names that he expects to garner considerable attention from pros is OpenTable, a company that allows diners to make dinner reservations using either a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

"It's really been a game changer for the entire industry," Cramer noted. Travelers can make reservations without calling around. People enjoying leisure activities can make reservations spontaneously, perhaps from a car or from a ball park or by a swimming pool.

And there's more to the business than the signature OpenTable.com site.

"They also run the reservation system on the websites of tens of thousands of other restaurants," Cramer explained.

No matter whether you book on OpenTable or through its other systems, "the company gets a piece of the action," Cramer added.

Specifically, OpenTable collects between $0.25 and $1 per seating diner.

Considering, The number of seated diners rose 30 percent to 38.5 million in the quarter ended Sept. 30, the profit potential may be enormous.

Because of these and other catalysts, pros have pushed shares 70% higher year to date.

And even though the stock trades at a 64 multiple, Cramer believes it will continue to advance into year's end.

"About a week ago OpenTable reported a spectacular quarter," Cramer explained. "Considering the potential and the gains already, I see every reason for pros to want this stock in their portfolios – if for no other reason than to look good to their clients."
