How Boeing will continue to crush the competition

In the past 10 years, Jim Cramer has developed an eye for searching for 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 pointed out that there are entire continents around the world who are hoping that Boeing does not do well. Is the CEO worried about this?

"Not at all, because we are going to win," he replied.

Boeing also recently also took steps to thank the shareholders when it announced a $12 billion buyback in December, and a 25 percent raise in dividend. However Cramer asked if that money was put into production instead of shareholder's pockets, would this have increased growth in the company?

"Yes. We have doubled our production in the last five years. We are going to take it up another 30 percent over the next four years. Those plans are baked; there is profitability and there is scale advantages associated with that. There are new planes that we have already sold that are in our backlog. We are in a good spot," McNerney said.

The CEO also takes this long-term view in perspective of the price of oil. Cramer had heard rumblings that the lower cost of oil would reduce demand for the fuel efficient planes that Boeing makes, as demand for those planes would not be as high.

"I suppose you could talk yourself into them not needing fuel efficient planes if the price of oil was zero. Then I'd buy that. But the facts are that a fifth of the outlay is for the new plane, and four-fifths is living with that plane for 20 years. The efficiency at almost any oil price really pays back for these guys," McNerney said.

At the end of the day, McNerney conveyed that his stewardship for Boeing is one that he is proud of, especially the role it played in shaping American democracy in WWII.

"It's a stewardship that is humbling. Our company produced 91,000 airplanes during WWII," McNerney said. "Democracy won that war and has enabled the next 50 years that we get to participate in. That's exciting and motivates the hell out of us every day when we get up in the morning."
