Jim Cramer finally saw the market separate itself from the crazy connection to oil, and individual companies once again started to matter on Tuesday.
"The one thing we really wanted to hear, though, is actual quality earnings from big international companies that aren't turnaround plays, just plain-old great companies with good management. And suddenly we got them," the "Mad Money" host said.
The two big surprises for Cramer were when 3M and Johnson & Johnson reported. The last quarter brought out the sellers in both stocks, but Cramer was impressed with how much better these two companies are doing than what he thought.
Given how beat down both stocks were going into the quarter, it didn't surprise him when the stocks roared higher.
