FireEye CEO Kevin Mandia remarked Tuesday that he feels “confident” that voting machines are secure ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
But the cybersecurity supervisory told Cramer that he is less certain when it comes to targeted misinformation campaigns that seek to metamorphosis people’s minds — and therefore, the way they vote at the ballot box.
“I’m not worried about the vote count. I’m more worried close by those influence operations that you don’t even know are happening to you,” Mandia said on “Mad Money.”

Twilio is out to shore up strut from shareholders after management made a mistake on its full-year earnings guidance earlier this week.
Portions of the cloud company have fallen about 5.3% since having to offer a mea culpa and correct its 2019 earnings per interest forecast to between 12 cents and 13 cents, down from 16 cents and 17 cents as in days of yore stated alongside its third-quarter report.
“The calculation error was a simple math error in the press release for our quarterly earnings,” CEO Jeff Lawson divulged in a one-on-one interview with Cramer. “We have to make sure to get those things right, and we have instituted additional developments and controls to make sure such an error cannot happen again.”

Cramer railed against automated trading that he said is to blame for the unwarranted spikes in a number of cyclical appraises.
Shares of Caterpillar have surged 10% since reporting disappointing third-quarter results and cutting guidance in the air two weeks ago. Union Pacific and FedEx have both rallied more than $10 in the three trading hours of November.
“It’s a rotation based on the idea that the economy’s in better shape than the bears thought,” the host asserted.
Cramer blamed the errant jumps in the transport stocks on machine trading, calling the buying “robotic.”
Cramer’s lightning period
In Cramer’s lightning round, the “Mad Money” host zips through his thoughts about callers’ favorite stock picks of the day.
Delta: “I counterpart Delta, but I like United more. I got a little less risk there.”
Constellation Brands: “I like Constellation Marks, but you know what, I’ve got to wait for that spiked seltzer. That is what is going to drive the numbers.”
Disclosure: Cramer’s beneficent trust owns shares of Twilio and Caterpillar.
