Cramer Quick Take: Dunkin Brands Slam-Dunks Earnings

Tickers in this article: DNKN DPZ SBUX
Check out Jim Cramer's latest trading recommendations on "Action Alerts Plus".


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Will Dunkin Brands (DNKN) be the next Starbucks (SBUX) or Dominos Pizza (DPZ) ?

Jim Cramer told Lindsey Bell at TheStreet.com Thursday he hopes to find out when he interviews Dunkin's CEO on "Mad Money" tonight.

Cramer said he wants to hear from the CEO whether the coffee bull market is still raging and what the company's expansion plans are both here in the U.S., where the chain is largely an East Coast phenomenon, and also overseas.

Is Dunkin the stock to own? Cramer said his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, owns Starbucks, but may be lured by Dunkin as the stock is not only cheaper, but also offers an American growth story that Starbucks doesn't have. Cramer said he'll know more tonight.
