As we head into 2015, Jim Cramer knows it's time to consult some of the best and widest reaching companies for their opinion.
That is why Cramer has gone to his long-time fave, Honeywell. This is a diversified industrial company that has its hands in the pot in everything from aerospace components, security systems, specialty materials, refining catalysts that help oil refineries suck out more gasoline from a barrel of crude and even turbochargers to boost car mileage.
Honeywell provided its forecast for 2015 on Monday morning, with in-line guidance and slightly lower than expected revenue guidance. Cramer sat down with Honeywell CEO Dave Cote to find out why he is still so optimistic about the economy these days.
"I'm not quite sure how we have gotten ourselves to a point where we think that high oil prices are a good thing for the economy. I don't quite get that one," Cote said.
