Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Searching for Market Leaders
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The markets appear to be stalled, Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers Monday, but that doesn't mean it's time to abandon them. Cramer said that it may be hard to find the market's leaders at the moment, but they are indeed out there.
Technology used to be a market leader, but now only telco spending is heating up, noted Cramer. That's simply not enough for the markets to take nice. Even positive news from Google

Perhaps the only bright spots are those sectors that rely on China and a rebound in Europe. Cramer said aerospace and autos, along with materials, mining and minerals offer hope of picking up steam as the global economy strengthens. A move in the steel stocks, he noted, may just be heating up.
Executive Decision: Rick Goings
In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Rick Goings, chairman and CEO of Tupperware
Goings once again championed Tupperware's person-to-person business model, noting that every few seconds there's a Tupperware gathering of friends, family or neighbors somewhere in the world. Despite the many revolutions in social media, people still like to meet face to face, said Goings.
However Tupperware is also flexible, he noted, and in countries like China, where space is limited, Tupperware now has 3,900 stores to help reach their millions of customers. As the global middle class continues to expand, the power of the Tupperware brand will only keep expanding. That's why Indonesia is now one of the largest markets for Tupperware because that country is experience a surge in women entrepreneurs and a 36% surge in sales.
