When Jim Cramer looks back at this week, he is stunned with the mergers-and-acquisitions volume that took place. Given the companies that are set to report next week, should the market brace for more M&A activity?
"I think it is hard to keep this tape down given the amazing merger, acquisition and breakup activity that never seems to end," the "Mad Money" host said.
For instance, many healthcare stocks rallied on Friday as more rumors swirled about additional consolidations in that space. These days, takeovers in the food, drug and cable industries are happening on a regular basis.
This was evident with stocks such as Salesforce, as CNBC's David Faber reported that the software company was indeed recently in talks to be acquired by Microsoft. Cramer has always said that this deal made sense, as Salesforce is the "king of cloud" and that is exactly the type of exposure that Microsoft wants.
"While the talks seem to be stillborn over price, nothing would surprise me here," Cramer said.
What kind of an opportunity would be so great that an investor would have to be willing to lose money to snap it up?
This might seem like a ridiculous question to some, but to Cramer, the cybersecurity industry is the answer. On Thursday night, Cramer spoke with Dave DeWalt, the CEO of Fire Eye, where he questioned him about the steady losses that the company has incurred.
"We wouldn't typically tolerate this level of losses unless it was from a biotech company spending heavily to get a new blockbuster drug through the FDA and onto the market," the "Mad Money" host said.
Now, cybersecurity is the exception to this rule, as it became apparent to Cramer that these companies must spend more to meet the huge demand that is stemming from hacks on a daily basis. Just think of Sony, Home Depot or CareFirst, to name a few recent examples.
Cramer was willing to admit that he blesses the losses from FireEye.
"I think it would be almost foolish for them to try to make money right now if it means allowing other, larger competitors to come in and take away its nascent crown," he added.
Cramer has some bad news for those who love to eat Egg McMuffins. Just take one look at the New York Times on Friday, and see an article entitled "Food Companies Fear Bird Flu May Cause Egg Shortages." However, this bad news is actually turning out to be a once in a lifetime opportunity for one privately held company.
Hampton Creek Foods specializes in creating plant-based, egg-free alternatives for ingredients such as mayonnaise and cookie dough. According to the Times, major food companies such as General Mills are turning to Hampton Creek for its powdered egg substitute to address the egg shortage.
To find out if Hampton Creek can ramp up enough scale to meet demand, Cramer spoke with the founder and CEO of Hampton Creek Foods, Josh Tetrick.
"We have really prepared for this moment. We are set up all across with Sysco, with U.S. Foods, with UNFI. This is our moment," the CEO said.
If investors want to understand how a company like Chipotle can continue to crush the competition, just take one look at its corporate culture.
Not only does it deliver amazing same-store-sales growth and excellent food, but it is also working to create the future leaders of America.
In the company's latest conference call a month ago, Chipotle highlighted Montel Milledge. At the age of 19, he has become the company's youngest ever restaurateur. In just two years he has gone from being a new hire, to general manager of the company's Maryland City location.
As a restaurateur, Milledge now receives stock options, a company car and a $10,000 bonus for every one of his employees that he develops into a new general manager.
To hear more about what could be in store for the future of this stellar employee, Cramer spoke with Milledge.
"I really want to make sure that the people behind me get the same opportunity that I did. I was blessed to have leadership that was there for me, and I want to be the same thing for them that I had," he said.
In honor of Memorial Day, Cramer thinks it is time to shine the spotlight on a significant issue in the United States: helping veterans transition from the battlefield to the business world.
Statistics show that the unemployment rate for veterans who have served since September 2001 is almost two points higher than the general population. Employers in the U.S. are always searching for the best employees who exhibit loyalty, integrity, and the character of proven leadership.
Those same qualities are often exhibited by those who have served in the U.S. armed forces.
One of the groups that are addressing this issue is Your Grateful Nation. It is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting U.S. combat veterans and their families as they transition from military to civilian life. The foundation's initial goal has been to serve those who have faced combat and high-risk missions and provide services such as employment transition services, paid internships, cooperative education and family stabilization support.
To find out more about what can be done to assist veterans, Cramer sat down with Rob Clapper, a former second lieutenant in the U.S. Army and the co-founder of Your Grateful Nation; John Ballay, who also co-founded Your Grateful Nation and is the president of Knot Standard; and two Navy SEALs.
Tej Gill is a vet who retired after serving 10 years on various SEAL teams. Darren McB, who asked to go by a nickname, initially joined the armed forces to pay back student loans and has now served in every war and conflict since the Kosovo crisis.
One of the issues, according to Clapper, is that there is a breakdown occurring in human resource departments within organizations. The HR procedures are not necessarily set up to understand how to translate a candidate's skills.
"If it's based upon a keyword search and a magical engine, sometimes they are not going to be the right fit on the screen, but they're the right fit on paper," Clapper said. (Tweet This)
In the Lightning Round, Cramer gave his take on a few caller favorite stocks:
Seagate Tech: "I think it's stalled right here, because in the end it is still related to PCs. But Seagate is a very inexpensive stock, and I would not trade it."
Paccar Inc: "It acts much better than Cummins, to tell you the truth. I happen to believe that the truck build is going to be good, so I am on the side of Paccar."
