Cramer Remix: Apple CEO Tim Cook surprises Jim

Apple CEO Tim Cook surprises Jim

After a decade of hosting "Mad Money," Jim Cramer received a phone call that perhaps shocked him more than any other.

Cramer was left with a deer in the headlights look, when Apple CEO Tim Cook called to wish Cramer a happy 10th anniversary. Of course, Cramer immediately took the opportunity to question Cook on the possible positive downstream effects of the new Apple Watch.

The "Mad Money" host elaborated by saying that Apple is not only just about fun technology gadgets, it is also the health company and credit card company of the future. Those are the two areas of growth that Cramer sees Apple gaining the most strength in currently.

Cook said that the watch's impact on health has been so strong that within the first 24 hours of announcing the research kit some 11,000 people signed up for a study in cardiovascular disease through Stanford University. Cook said it would typically have taken 50 medical centers an entire year to sign up that many people.

"Research kit is an absolute gamechanger," Cook said.

Cramer has always advised investors that when it comes to Apple you should own it, not trade it. The "Mad Money" host asked Cook if he agrees with this mantra.

"For people that have owned the stock for 10 years, our stock price 10 years ago when you started 'Mad Money' was less than $6 on a split adjusted bases. So you can bet those people are extremely happy right now," Cook responded.

So on the 10th anniversary of "Mad Money," Cramer took the time to reflect on why he gets out of bed so early in the morning. Why does Cramer come out in front of the camera lens every night to share what he sees and offer guidance?

"There's one reason and one reason only: we want to level the playing field for you, for all the people out there who have felt disenfranchised, over their head, diminished, abused or just plan befuddled by the financial system," said Cramer.

Cramer does it for you. The show is not just about picking stocks—it is about empowering investors to think for themselves and to give them the tools to do the research, ask the questions and have the confidence to approach the market.

"We will shame those who hurt you. We will stand up for what is right, and who is right, and who is doing his or her best to create value for you," Cramer added

However, he knows that it is still his responsibility to explain to investors what happened in the stock market so they can produce a profit.

Cramer can clearly see that the rally of the dollar has gripped the worldwide economy and wreaked havoc overseas. He is especially worried about Latin America, in particular the Brazilian company Petrobras, which at one time had a $350 billion market capitalization. Today, it is only worth $34 billion.

"I mention this seemingly far away situation because it's my job not just to bring you ideas, but to put them in context, explain them thematically, tell you if they can hurt your pocketbook or your portfolio," said the "Mad Money" host.

Cramer saw that almost every large move in the market on Thursday was connected to currency. Almost all of the global stress was connected to the fact that after a long freefall, the euro finally gained a bit of strength against the dollar. That sent buyers flooding back into the U.S. stock market.

"This was a day of good sailing in a sea of worldwide uncertainty. Recognize the positives, but don't get complacent," Cramer said.

And just like Cramer has done for the past 10 years, he will be there to help investors figure out the next plan of action and navigate through the rough seas. Stay the course, and Cramer will be with you all the way.

In his years on the show, Cramer has honed his ability to spot cycles. He can smell a cycle from far away and knows when it will transcend into a multiyear money-making machine.

Right now, Cramer sees that we are right in the middle of an aerospace cycle. Airlines are rolling in cash, thanks to the major decline in the cost of oil.

This is exactly why Cramer is convinced that Boeing will crush the competition and head higher. He sat down with Boeing CEO Jim McNerney to find out how taking a long-term perspective in planning has paid off for the company.

"You've got to have a 20-year perspective on the market...The people that we compete with who don't take that long view; they don't satisfy customers as well. You've got a 25-year relationship with the customer after you sell them stuff," McNerney said.

Cramer also took the time to remind investors on this anniversary, while it is good to have skepticism in investing, sometimes you need to pinch yourself and keep going when the company is a best of breed stock.

He applies that advice to Chipotle, which may seem as though it has run up too much, making you feel like you've missed the boat. However, Cramer still thinks it has a lot of life in it.

Chipotle has revolutionized the food industry by selling delicious and locally sourced food. The concept of integrity in food has helped the company to massively rally since it went public nine years ago.

To find out more on what Chipotle could have in store for the future, Cramer spoke with director and co-CEO Monty Moran.

Moran attributed the success of Chipotle to various factors including the use of the best tasting ingredients, an eye for sustainability and team members that believe in the mission of the company.

"That combination produces a really great dining experience and is something that is really genuine and resonates with our customers," Moran said.

In the Lightning Round, Cramer gave his take on a few caller favorite stocks, just as he has done for the last 10 years:

Novavax: "You're right to be concerned, and this is not the kind of market for Novavax. If you want to go spec, you do Regeneron. You would have to buy one share versus 100, but that's what I would go for."

Lam Research: "It's really good! You have to be careful because there's a good chance someone will downgrade it tomorrow because of the Intel, but I like Lam."
