"mad money" starts now. hey, i'm cramer. welcome to "mad money," welcome to cramerica. other people want to make friends. i'm just trying to make you some money. nigh job is not just to entertain you, but teach you so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. the first rule of growth stock investing, underpromise and over
deliver. it's what all good managers of tremendous growth companies know to do. they rein in expectations, tapping them down so they can later blow them away. in short, they play, upod. the initials for underpromising delivery and it's exactly what you need to get your growth stock trading at a much higher price. ♪ hallelujah oh, but tim cook, the ceo of apple apparently has never heard of upod and because he doesn't know the meaning of the term the nasdaq gave it away each as the dow went in the s&p climate at 1.3%. apple's dreary iphone presentation yesterday, where we got more colors and more security, but no pizazz and no smart pricing to take on samsung, the current handset colossus was the quint essential opposite of,pod, and hence why
the stock dropped today. he somehow disdains it and he thinks that he's above it. it doesn't -- what matters is that apple rules so shut up and love it! if you disagree with us, hit the road! as the analyst in three major firms did today when they dow d downgraded the stock as a hold, chipotle, starbucks, you find companies with chief executives who know the game. not ashamed. they never let expectations get ahead of the reality and they don't make promises they can't deliver, and while they will tell you they will disdain the stock other than the business. it's called the shareholders and they want to please them. maybe cook believes in the homily, please all, please none. an, i think it's worth it to explain yet overpromising came in. even back then, analysts were
about the dearth of innovation. the company introduced a phone that wasn't ready sulfurwise and no one wanted it even if it had benefits that people didn't understand. they were thinner and they were the answer and the answer that is to samsung, apple's fiercest competitor. and a company that is simply decided it was going to win by any means necessary. samsung, i was thinking all day today. who are they like? they're like ulysses s. grant. no nonsense. he didn't promote himself. he kept his job, though, for a simple reason as president lincoln explained. i like this man, he fights. i like samsung, they fight. if you want to change analogies, but stick with the history thing. samsung's variant on underpromise and over deliver is a bit like teddy roosevelt on steroids. carry a big galaxy.
what did tim cook do last fall when he didn't do anything to please the critics and they weren't critics the year before that. he said basically, you ain't seen nothing yet. he told people in 2013 to be filled with omg products and including something breakthrough and revolutionary with television. he didn't rein in expectations and he didn't talk about apple taking over your livering roinge stoked it. where are they? movie colors? is that what omg is? didn't we have for the ipod? touch screen ids? how about a price scheme that would take back share from samsung which is famous for the price cutting. no, they gave us high price points. how about the chinese telecoms that the street was chattering about and maybe they haven't hit yet, they better. you aren't practicing upod where it may or may not happen. they're saying we're doing the best we can. chipotle stopped promising
anything after the stock plummeted 100 points a year ago, and now it's come back because it's been underpromising or overdelivering ever sense and it's outsized technological gains and what they actually develop developed. under armour promises of apple. as he said so last year when he interviewed him on "squawk on the street" when he said at year end that his chinese business wasn't going to falter and there was no cannibalization in the u.s. we get a realtor in europe, we get super duper growth in china. an acceleration of sales in the u.s. and talk about underpromising and over delivering and howard announces baked good and juices that have been tested where the stuff's offered so they'll roll it out nationally. look out. now that's a man who knows what a presentation's all about. shock factor! we'll take two of the best-performing stocks. have you noticed how they keep
estimates? they've kept a little in the estimates and the degeneration drug for two years ago and celgene has tried to lay off, because he may underdeliver on approvals. he isn't control them. he knows better. the most important thing you need to understand is this is nota i dirty game. it's not beneath anyone. i first heard upod explained to me by a major consumer products ceo and everyone who is watching knows this dump's products. see, it's part of a roadshow when with i was a money manager. i told him what i thought he could earn and all of the good news he expected from this firm and he told me to give him a break. i said why not? he spelled out the letters on a piece of paper. upod? and how he practiced it. the goal, he said, was to never let anybody get too far ahead and never promise anything because the shareholders had the
right not to be disappointed. he said that. they hadda i right not to be disappointed and he did that as part of his job. he sold his company for a big amount of money. again, half of the people they're watching this show, and he didn't regard upod, and he thought it was ancillary. what could tim cook have done? i suggested some of the litany, if you have a breakthrough product go do something bold about it. buy twitter for social and go buy netflix and bundle it with netflix and reach 150 million people, and the apple stock loads and some would say hoards, but it would be a much better use for the money than buying back stock and raising the dividend because it would give the company hallowed growth again. even if it would be an initial hit to earnings. it's obvious that no one cares about these earnings anyway.
when you promised that 2013 would be the year of good products and you hinted that there could be a big apple tv launch you better have something we're show casing besides colors and security. i don't even know if i would -- i don't know if i would even have bothered with the intro meeting like the release. i would have just said, okay, put these new, better cell phones into the stores. maybe we'll get buzz. that's how a stock gets crushed today. let me give you the bottom line. it practices upod, and when you practice it you're eviscerated. don in maine. don! >> jim, how are you? >> good. how are you? >> good. a while back you had a high opinion of yelp which has had excellent results. jim, what is your present opinion? >> i'm yelping! >> i happen to think that yelp
will be one of the great growth companies along with linkedin during this period. why do i like yelp so much, i want you to go to the salesforce.compressen tagz, thank you, mark, where the ceo of yelp comes on and talks about what the mission of the company is and what he's going do and you will agree with me that this stock cannot be contained at the $60 level. i need to go to bill in ohio. bill! >> mr. cramer. >> yeah? >> i want to thank you for so much help. >> thank you. you're welcome. i'm a retired person for the last five years and i am making more money in the stock market than i ever did working and mainly because of you. >> thank you, sir. as i was talking to regina, the executive producer, some of these days are real hard and when i get a nice compliment like you just gave me it stays okay. >> i have at&t, and i have quite
a bit of stock in each one of them. >> oh congratulations, sir. good. and i have to get a little bit -- i have to sell a little bit. i've got some problems and how do you compare the verizon and at&t? i know they're both good company, but -- >> i do like verizon more than at&t. i do think verizon's stock should be lower given the money they're shelling out for the vodafone and they should have spent $30 billion more as my friend had in "the new york times" last weekend. >> i can't tell you to sell at&t at 36, butta the 34, i'm going beg you to hold both of these until at&t goes back to 35. a dollar doesn't mean that much, when it goes on 35 i'll feel bad if you sell it. there's no hurry on get rid of at&t. gail in north carolina. gail. >> boo-yah from south carolina,
jim. >> panthers, super! >> there you go. >> yeah. >> thanks for all of you do for us home gamers. listen, i bought jen worth, and it has continued to decline. are you -- should i cut my losses? >>, and they've been suffering a little bit from the higher spike in interest rates and jen worth has got a fabulous business in mortgage insurance and we saw the builders go up today as nutty as that was. i think it's a good stock and i would not sell a share. four little letters can be the key to this market. upod. oh, apple? well, it spelled it backwards. stay with cramer. >> coming up, red ink remedy? a new therapy has done wonders for the help of mps pharmaceuticals. up over 200% this year, but does

speculating on one of the single-digit stocks and the their 10 names and it turned out to be more right than it could possibly have imagined and that's what we're facing with mpsp for you home gamers and it's for ultra-rare diseases that has been roaring for the last six montts going from $8 to $28. the reason for this run? mps is having an incredible success for its lead drug for short bowel syndrome. it's a rare condition where the intestines can't properly absorb nutrients so the patient needs to be fed for a tube intravenously for 12 hours a did without this drug, at least they did before it came along. many of them can go off the iv entirely because this drug allows them to process food. so far as of the second quarter mps has sold 315 press krpgzs.
just the treatment costs $225,000 a year for a single sxasht they'll be taking it every year for the rest of their lives. it has an interesting pipeline. it's a treatment for hypoparathyroidism. we'll give you a 238% gain and it was first recommended a year ago and up since the last march and after that move maybe you're being too greedy and maybe you should ring the register? i don't know. half, two-thirds? what about the rest? let's check if with dr. francois nadir, the president and ceo of mps to find out how the company is doing and where it's headed. welcome back to the show. >> good to see you. >> some people say, jim, you got behind the company and it's $2.8 billion and they have 300, some-odd prescriptions. you're crazy, and i -- i come back and say, why don't you listen to tonight because you'll realize that there is a big pipeline within this pipeline.
>> exactly right. so we were phenomenally happy with the launch in the u.s. we are fighting hypoparathyroidism by the end of this year and by the end of next year and we went global as of march and we're build our international expansion and hopefully we'll have sales in europe early next year and we'll have a pipeline that will follow that with gattex pediatric and mpsp 75. >> some of the documents say that there are thousands people that have this. this is not a 500-person disease, right? >> so for short bowel syndrome we have 3,000 to 5,000 patients in the u.s. for hypoparathyroidism it's more to 60,000 patients in the u.s. >> that could be a gigantic market. >> we would not. it's a different market space and a different market price, but we believe the opportunity
for net paracould exceed the opportunity for gattex. >> we know this drug is rather remarkable. what profile makious feel that it could be that successful since we don't have any basis yet? >> the clinical data and the clinical program showed that netparaworks and it's very well tolerated and the compliance for netparathroughout the program has been exceptionally high. patients like the the drug and the drug works. >> one of the things that i think people don't understand is there are natural ways that people find your drug, right? there are caregivers that know about it. it's not like -- it's possible that everybody who has it is going to take it is what i'm leading to? >> well, i don't know about that, but certainly the uptick for gattex since the beginning of the year has been exceptionally good. the patients have been waiting for a treatment for many, many, many years and now they have the access to gattex and drug --?
they are currently taking 140. are they leading normal lives now? >> it's interesting because one of the comments that our care coordinators hear day in day out from the patient is they feel better. so not only we're able to reduce the reliance on the nutrition, but the patients feel better. >> okay, now i know that you've done equity orphan, and i know your balance is in good shape. social media, the guy says to me the stock's had a big run, why not raise a lot of cash right now and have a big secondary the show. >> we just did one a few months back and we finished the quarter with $181 million in our balance sheet so we don't need to raise cash now. >> when we talk about what europe's doing. i know that europe's getting better economically, but you can offer celgene and he was worried about the way the european governments would compensate. is europe coming back? does that matter to you? is there an economic issue? there could be, but we are very
targeted and when we go first so the prioritization of our access in europe is priority, plus every product is different and we believe that gattex offerses the value and that is why the coverage in the u.s. has been exceptionally good and we believe that it will be the same in europe. >> does it wok for anything else that we know of reit now? >> we have gattex and the population and the mathematical need just to give you a number, over the period of five years these kids spend 148 days in the hospital because of their condition and this is where i believe and we believe that gattex and the pediatric indication can help these kids. >> the health care insurers want this to happen. >> i believe they do. dr. nader, you've done an amazing jobs and it's one of the biggest success stories we've had on "mad money." dr. francois nader, the ceo of the pharmaceuticals. take a look at where regeneron
was before we talked about it. that's the weigh you have to think of this stock, stay with cramer. >> coming up, the banks have been cashing in on the rebound in housing. the would-be home openers watch mortgage rates rise, is a correction in store or is now the time to make a deposit? cramer clues you in.
>> the banks have gotten into inexplicable territory the last few weeks. no doubt in my mind that most of the numbers from most bank stocks are now too high considering the sudden and shocking decline in mortgage o ridge nations and refinances, hey, we saw some horrible numbers this morning, versus the lack of any real pickup in construction loans or any other loans are, for that matter. plus they can't make up for the losses in the mortgage business and they can't make it up in the services business although wells fargo is a good service business. in the meantime there still isn't enough shift in the yield curve to deposit the number which would allow them to make more money on them than before. plus these don't real over more than once and there's lent plenty in the banks. meanwhile, we haven't seen the mergers and acquisitions that we expect to see at this stage in the cycle because there's been a
big concentration in the group. i keep hearing talks for a potential bid of sterling financial out of spokane, washington, but it kind of says it all, doesn't it? that's a bank that most people haven't heard of. the dumps are around the financial business. what the heck is driving the bank index to these levels? how can that that be happening that the the levels seem it is quite evident. >> the comeback has made it so that the banks have a dramatically reduced number of bad loans in the books and bad mortgages and even the worst of the mortgage has come back from the home days. >> i keep thinking about russell goldsmith, the city national bank to the stars told me the other day right here that they are fewer than three months and the home sales have increased 30% in value and they have profits on repossessed homes and they've taken a big charge. >> banks do not make money
carrying homes. >> homes are extremely costly to maintain and what matters is the ease with which these homes cannot be sold and they can be sold with no problems at much higher prices even just a year ago. if there is an adjustment and the consumer is thinking about mortgage rates and it's therefore time to buy then you'll see better mortgage numbers from the banks in 2014, and we'll see much better reserve reverse us that are continued out of the bottom line and that means again, why the housing stocks were up today. >> bad loans are going in at the same time as they become more and more possible than the stronger economy will generate loan growth. sure, it doesn't hurt that the mortgage numbers were so horrendous that the fed is taking tapering off the table. something reasonably soon because they all rally today, but i think it's all about the hadd home portfolio going to good and they're being cured by the rising home price nationwide. that's for the strength that's
been going on for weeks. they should be coming down because if nothing changes in the final weeks of this quarter we should be seeing shortfalls from the banks across the board. steven in michigan? steven? >> boo-yah, jim. thanks for everything that you do. >> quite welcome. >> my question is for stock symbol wmc. got a super high yield. how is the future of the company look? is now a good time to buy? >> no, i don't. these are the residential mortgagebacks, securities, reits. i said no to natalie, too. i likonquinn, and i think that's's good company. i like genworth and radiant. they're just too chaotic for me. let's go to lynn in california, please. lynn? >> hi, jim. i held a position in a relatively small company called universal insurance holdings symbol uve. it has a dividend yield of 4.3%
and has also made a nice run up this year. i've been pretty patient. i'm curious to know your thoughts about using it? >> this is the homeowner's insurance. it's good business. it's good business. a plain vanilla business and i happen to like travellers in there, and i think that's the best breed in the segment, and i understand it's got a much better yield and if you want more income, it's got better income. let's go to bob in florida, i first of all, want to thank you, because i've done well with the stocks that you recommended and i bought them that i planned to hold on to, and i held them as's short-term trade, but with mortgage rates coming up the way they are, what do you think? >> i think you're fine, bob. i think you're fine, because in the end are end are in the
mortgage insurance and the for ha is full pulling out and i think you should hold on to the trading tock and will hold in the judicial veriment and i think you can see their 15, $15 and the bad loans are going to go and the generate long are growth wrote. i think the shortfalls, this is where they'll be con sen trath. don't move. lightning round is next. tomorrow, kick off the trading day with "squawk on the street," live from post 9 at the nyse. clients are always learning more

montero, a construction company that went on the market recently, and i know it's been expanding to other territories like chile through acquisitions. >> i don't know that stock. i should know it because i like the engineering and construction business, but i do not know that one and i have to do more work on it. let's go to jerry in texas. hey, jim. about a dozen years ago i lost a lot of friends at cantor fitzgerald. my stock and i'd like your opinion is rgr, strom ruger and the company's got great earnings growth and great sales growth and they have no debt, and the thing about it is they've got a short interest of 32% and i noticed in the last week or so that it looks like a lot that it closed where it's jumped up two points at the end. today it was up 269 with a range of three points. >> yeah. i don't know what's going on
with that. i know that it had a good quarter and i know it's better than smith & wesson in terms of the earnings. so i don't know. i'll make some calls. i don't know exactly why the stock is spiking right here. i don't have that information. >> let's go to robert in florida. robert! >> boo-yah! >> boo-yah, cramer! >> boo-yah! robert in florida here calling with my almost 5-year-old son chase. we both love your show and we were calling about nordic american tanker. >> last night i did a piece about how there was a lot of oil to be able to refine and it's also happening on the east coast and they're saying the same thing and nordic american tanker, we import a lot more oil. >> and they said that therefore, china should pick up the slack and it has not picked up the slack and i don't know how much upside it has. it was the dry full carriers and particularly dsx. we had that one right that has been the place to be, and that,

>> we're always looking for publicly traded stocks to play the next big themes on "mad money," but sometimes if you're going to get your hands around the most cutting edge trends out there, you need to know what's happening in privately held companies that don't trade publicly yet. you know we're all about investing in stocks on "mad money." there's a private player that can give you a better read on the industry. take smash burger, the fast, casual better burger chain with more than 20 locations and it's
all about making healthier hamburgers and veggie fries. and a lot of other offerings, too. we know it's become a major theme and smash burgers is a rapidly growing chain at the forefront of it and i wouldn't be surprised if it decided to take itself public some day. so let's take a closer look at this intriguing story and go off the tape with with the chairman and ceo of smash burger. well in to "mad money," how are you, sir? >> how are you? >> i have to get right to it because there was an article on the journal that said puts ipo on the side. weave had some companies smaller that know you come public. >> it's not the right time. you have to pick the right time to be public. right now it's not the right time for us. >> we had noodles on and they're not that much bigger than you and they thought it was a terrific time, or is it just the concept? >> we're the fastest growing that i know retailer out there in the restaurant space, and of can inand noodles and others are
growing at 10%, 11% a year and we'll just pick the right time and we'll put another $50 million in the business and we'll pick the right time. >> what is the water in denver that the great chains that come out of there. >> i think it's silicon valley and the industry. >> no onay from denver and one of the things that i think makes it work is there is two of everybody there and you can test your consumer concept and it's been a perfect part to start restaurants. tell me how you can provide it in the time people want. >> we're fast casual. >> when you order at the counter, we take your order and we take your food right when you order it and it's delivered to your table in about five minutes in a tumbler. smash, our burgers, we take a certified angus meatball.
we start with a meatball and we smash it on a grill and we end up cooking it two and a half minute, faster than you cook one at all. >> for people that haven't had one. why is that so great versus two hamburgers and patties on a roll? >> the best thing about it is when you smash it on the grill it puts a sear on the bottom of it and it makes for a delicious burger and made for you. >> you are in how many states and how much more runway do you have? what are the ultimate number of smash burgers that we have in this country? >> i'm almost afraid to say, but burgers are $business, and oui right now there is an eight to 10,000 unit. >> 8,000 to 10,000 for your company? >> we do. we believe over the next 20, 30 years if you see the paneras and chipotles are on path to be 3,000 units, burgers are three times that size and really,
there will be one or two of us who take the lead in the fast casual segment in the united states. >> okay, now, there are some people, and this is not me, but i'm a big box guy, social media. jim cramer, they have good quality food, but prices are high with others with similar venus. how is it justified? >> i would disagree with that. for $8 to $10, we think we're give young a $15 to $20 experience you get four or five ounces of fries, or sweet potatoes and we're at the same price point as chipotle and panera in the fast, casual space. >> if you're watching there are two ways to play it. one day you can come public. jim, i want to own a buffalo wild wings or a domino's franchise. you have a way toward one way, but how do you get a franchise. >> the best way to get a franchise is to be experienced. so we have 25, multi-unit
franchise partners today. they have all experience in the restaurant industry and they all have the desire to own and operate restaurants where they live. >> do you tell them, look? we think that they're disruptors to mcdonald's? maybe we're disruptors to wendy's? we feel like we're setting the stage for how better burgers are developing in the united states and i'd say one of the biggest surprises is not only are we stealing share from mcdonald's, but we're getting a third of our business from the applebee's and fridays of the world in the casual dining space because we're two or three bucks cheaper and the other thing that's happening is there's been no national player with better burgers and people have been going to the national fast casual guys and all of a sudden there's a choice in their life. >> we love danny meyer and we think shake shack is similar? is there room for shake shack and you. >> with burgers being at 100 bill gron and the space, fast casual growing two to three time and we're here in new york, i love them, he's great. we're in las vegas and lots of places where we will coexist

class is in session so listen up! i'm having some trouble giving apple will a passing grade on their attempts to diversify. and like i told you earlier in the show, we need more than that, but you, you still have a chance to get an a-plus here in this class, you just need to do your homework and make sure it's diversified enough to give you the down on the up days and let's put your picks to the test and get to my favorite game, am i diversified and call me and tweet me, too. tell me your top five holdings and maybe you need to mix it up and let's start with the tweet at jimcramer who tweets professor cramer. apple, celgene, blackstone, sunoco, vodafone and am i diversified btw, which means by the way, do you consider apple, core lab, i do consider it, and
it's a great question because core labs is a great company. apple is tech, celgene is biotech. plaquestone is financial tech and blackstone is just a private equity company and sunoco is an oil service pipeline company and oil pipeline, financial, telco, computer, biotech, and i think that's well done. ♪ hallelujah >> i like that. let's go to david in mississippi. david! >> hey, jim, a big mississippi state boo-yah. >> oh, man, i hope to see you this weekend boo-yah. >> i love your show, jim. i think you're an awesome guy. >> thank you. >> my stocks are bristol-myers, altria, dupont, southern company and chevron. >> all right. let's take a look at that. thank you for those compliments. you have bristol-myers and that's a good farp farms company and teeny-weeny and chevron and that's one of the largest oil and gas exploration production companies and altria is, and
that's philip morris for those who are unsure of what that is and dupont, that's coleman's company and we think the world of what she's doing and what like what nelson is doing. we have a chemical company or an enzyme company. a utility company and a tobacco company and a drug company, bingo! ♪ hallelujah gary in kentucky, gary! >> boo-yah, professor cramer, greetings from louisville, kentucky. >> louisville! >> i love louisville, what's up? >> here's what i've got. delta air lines, merck. >> okay. >> cisco, ford and valet. >> oh, man am i all over that, we wish we had more valet, but we keep getting restricted, it's terrific. i think the stock goes to $18, okay. cisco, technology and remember i
think the quarter was good, not bad, but he had to lay off 4,000 people and al mulally, checked in with him today and trying to get him to come back on the show and don't you worry about that, merck starting to sneak up and going to the 49 level and i'm not crazy about the growth pattern and delta is an airline. merck, iron company, drug, auto, tech! wow! ♪ hallelujah >> i how about patrick in george? >> boo-yah, jim. am i diversified? i've got ford, mgm, regent's financial, u.s. air and sirius radio. >> interesting group of stocks. i wish us airways had merged with amr and it would have been at 25. it's okay. they're not as great as they were without the acquisition. regent's is the regional bank and sirius satellite is actually a subscription radio company.
so we've got a media company and a bank and casino and auto and we have airlines. these were all fabulous! i think people are in the game and it's like the fantasy league. i feel like it's rigged by the commissioner. stick with cramer. >> boo-yah, cramerica. "mad money" is approaching our 2,000th show. why do i come here every night? to fight for you and show you the american dream is alive and well that you have a chance to be with the big guys. to celebrate, i want to know why you the citizens of cramerica watch, so i ask y 2 k, why is mad money important to you. >> boo-yah, jim. thanks for what you do for us little guys. >> i like mad money for the insights jim offers. >> thanks for giving grate advice. >> show me. send me a buy, tweet it, share it on facebook, use the #, mmy2k
my charitable trust is just holding. i don't think the stock does much. i don't want it to be like microsoft where it does absolutely nothing. it's too cheap to sell, i just wish much more out of the company like a day after president obama's national address on sir area and nothing seems to have changed. there still is not enough support in congress for a military strike, syria is not going to hand over its chemical weapons to anybody, and unfortunately vladimir putin is in the diplomatic driver's seat. nothing is affecting the dow. it's up 135 points and inching to another all thyme. late breaking news, karl icahn is making a move on apple. i
