Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Under-Promise and Over-Deliver
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The first rule of growth stocks is under-promise and over-deliver, Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers Wednesday as he opined on the backlash seen in Apple
Cramer said that Apple, a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, just didn't get the under-promise message when investors had similar lackluster reactions to the company's products this time last year. At the time, CEO Tim Cook said that 2013 would be a big year for Apple. To date, the company's one announcement touted colorful iPhones with better security.
Growth stocks often learn the under-promise, over-deliver, or UPOD, message the hard way, said Cramer, as Chipotle Mexican Grill
"Never promise what can't be delivered," said Cramer. Shareholders have the right not to be disappointed.

Executive Decision: Francois Nader
In his first "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Dr. Francois Nader, president and CEO of orphan drug maker NPS Pharmaceuticals
Nader said that he's very pleased with his company's prospects. NPS plans on filing for its next drug approval by the end of this year and is proceeding with global expansion plans early next year. After that, Nader said his company's pipeline will continue to expand as its drug, Gattex, expands into new indications.
Nader said the market opportunities are huge for NPS and extend far beyond the few hundred patients the company currently services. Not all patients will have to pay the $295,000 annual price tag for Gattex, but there are far more patients that could benefit from the treatment.
