Cramer Flashback: On May 27, the Mad Money guru called SPX the ultimate New Tech stock. What does it leverage?


The Ultimate 'New Tech' Stock


This company has four divisions: flow technology, test and measurement, thermal equipment and industrial products and services.

SPX’s power transformer business is in a particular sweet spot, Cramer explained, because there’s a once-in-a-generation transformer replacement cycle that’s about to happen, as many transformers out there have been in use for over 25 years.
