To get a real sense of how the economy is doing, Cramer likes to look at companies that produce aggregate products for the construction industry. If a stock like Martin Marietta Materials can report a remarkably great quarter, than he considers that to be a great sign for the U.S. economy.
Martin Marietta makes crushed stone, sand, gravel, concrete, asphalt and cement for various types of infrastructures, both residential and commercial. It is now the No. 2 play in the U.S. and has major exposure to the Texas market after acquiring Texas Industries last year.
Could this be a sign that the U.S. economy will continue to be on the right track for the long term? To find out, Cramer sat down with Martin Marietta Materials CEO Ward Nye.
"What we saw in volumes going from peak to trough in our heritage business, we went from 205 million tons to 125 million tons. Places like Atlanta saw 70 percent of the volume go away, and now we are seeing that turn," Nye said.

One sector that has been slammed in the past few weeks are the utilities. This is partly due to the fact that investors have been selling the utility ETF XLU, with the belief that rising bond yields will cause investors to change from dividend stocks to bonds seeking better income.
Dominion Resources is one of America's largest gas and electric utilities , and it's experiencing rapid growth in its natural gas transmission and distribution business. Could the bond related selloff create an opportunity to buy the stock?
Cramer spoke with Tom Farrell, the chairman and CEO of Dominion Resources, to hear more of what could be in store for the future.
"I think as we return to a time when interest rates are going up some, people will still want dividends from utilities. We will have to start differentiating among the stocks where more growth prospects are, and I think that's where we should do well," said Farrell.
In the Lightning Round, Cramer gave his take on a few caller favorite stocks:
Xerox Corp: "The last quarter wasn't that good, but the stock didn't go down. That usually tells me that good things could be ahead. It should have gone down, I'm not going to tell you to sell it now."
Tessera Technologies: "Ever since Richard Hill joined the board there the guy made the viewers all of that money on Novellus, it has been such a win. I think it can go higher."
