In August, hedge fund Starboard Value invested $670 million into Symantec and nominated five new board members. Starboard Value has "a really consistent long-term track record," the "Mad Money" host said Monday.
Starboard ended up appointing three board members, including Rick Hill, former CEO of Novellus.
Last week, Symantec reported quarterly earnings that beat Wall Street's estimates. With these strong financial results combined with Starboard Value's involvement, Cramer thinks "the stock will start getting more respect in the not too distant future."
