Jim Cramer last night on his “Mad Money" show called the stocks of Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Best Buy (BBY) total disasters. HP assembles products that are declining, while Best Buy’s fundamentals are weakening and its rumored takeover may never occur, Cramer said. In the “Executive Decision” segment of the show, Salesforce.com (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff told Cramer that the company is focusing on revenue and market share, rather than profits. Salesforce.com is also collaborating with HP in an attempt to boost the troubled hardware maker, the CEO said. Turning to the retail space, Cramer said that Urban Outfitters’ (URBN) recent results were better than they looked. The company is well-positioned to deliver great results this quarter, the host added.
