Even someone as opinionated as Jim Cramer has to take time to be reflective sometimes. That's because just taking time to listen to what the executives at companies are really saying can go a long way.
"Stop, look and listen, because you might understand that while the averages are punk…there's a positive future that can't be lost in the strong-dollar, Federal Reserve mumbo jumbo that's possessed all the professional money managers out there," said the "Mad Money" host.
For instance, Cramer was stopped dead in his tracks Tuesday evening when he interviewed Mark Fields, CEO of Ford. The "Mad Money" host jumped all over Fields with questions about higher interest rates after the market closed in the red.
Fields replied to Cramer, saying, "Let's put into perspective. When you look at what's happening with interest rates here in the states, and all the talk about an interest rate rise, that is really indicative of a healthy economy."
Cramer was shocked—of course, that made sense!
