The "tried-and-true formula" for making money in any kind of restaurant stock, Cramer said Thursday, is when a company increases its international exposure.
"When McDonald’s ran out of room to grow domestically [and] decided to focus on ramping its international presence, you made a fortune in the stock, just like you made a killing in Yum! Brands and Starbucks when they both made the overseas leap," the "Mad Money" host noted. "Right now Domino’s Pizza is following this international growth game plan perfectly."
Growth in foreign markets is one reason Domino's reported a strong quarter on Thursday, Cramer said. The Ann Arbor, Mich.-based company delivered an 8 cent earnings beat off a 34 cent basis. Its revenues rose by 2.1 percent while international same-store sales increased by 8.3 percent. International growth accounts for much of the company's new locations and its international presence only continues to grow, Cramer said. He thinks it's far from saturation and could easily double its footprint in its top-five foreign markets.
Domino's stock has posted a 97 percent gain since Cramer first recommended it on January 13, 2010 when it traded at $10.28 a share. Cramer thinks it has more room to run, but wanted to hear from CEO J. Patrick Doyle. Watch the video to see the full interview.
