One more example of a stock that holds its own is long-time Cramer fave, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. This company has recently gone through a wholesale rebranding and major modeling efforts for its chain of 2,315 chicken restaurants. And boy is it paying off.
On Wednesday, the company reported a 1-cent earnings beat from a 41 cent basis,and same store sales up 7.3 percent. Management raised its full year earnings and same store sales forecasts, which sent the stock rising 7 percent on Thursday.
Cramer spoke with Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen CEO Cheryl Bachelder to find out if it can continue rising, and take share from the high end restaurants as well.
"Recently I was in New York City eating at a very fancy restaurant with fried chicken and champagne. And the woman at the table next to me said 'Don't you think Popeyes is better than this?' and I just laughed. Our chicken is so good, it stands up to the finest dining table. And that is what our guests love about it," said Bachelder.
Resilient stocks continued to resonate with the "Mad Money" host in the Lightning Round:
Autodesk: "It had a great quarter, and I feel like we missed it, frankly. I was waiting for a pullback, but it was a really really good quarter. I liked it."
Chicago Bridge & Iron: "There was a slam job that was done, and I didn't really appreciate it. But the problem is that this is deeply linked with the West Texas and Brent oil and as that complex goes down the stock will go down too."

Sometimes when a stock has been struggling, Cramer thinks it is a good idea to circle back and see if there could be a good entry point. FleetMatics Group was recently downgraded by Bank of America, and sent the stock tumbling almost five percent on Thursday.
Cramer sat down with FleetMatics CEO, Jim Travers, to find out if this stocks resilience could have it bounce back into action. FleetMatics is the cloud based software platform, mainly helping customers improve efficiency of fleet vehicle routes. A customers savings could be up to ten times the amount of the subscription over the long term.
Could the challenges in the local environment pull the stock back down, or will business pick back up with the lower price of gasoline?
"There are a number of significant things that we see as barriers. First of all the value of the data that we are collecting, we now have over 523,00 subscribers, and we are collecting this data real time. So the real value of what we are providing that customer, is the historical information about what is trending about what is happening with that asset that mobile worker over time. As we build the scale of our data base and that knowledge, it's a unique advantage back through our system to give that customer insight that a small business that is just starting up that is trying to compete with us does not own," said Travers.
