For his second "Executive Decision" segment of Monday's Mad Money program, Jim Cramer spoke with Corie Barry, CEO of Best Buy (BBY) , to discuss the gaming cycle and the company's community initiatives.
Barry said that while some investors are worried about the "gaming cycle," the gaming market has grown far beyond just consoles. Between eSports and social gaming, the gaming market doesn't rely on console sales cycles the way it used to.
Barry also said Best Buy is no stranger to giving back in the communities they serve. The company now operates 46 teen tech centers, which help students learn about technology they wouldn't otherwise be exposed to.
Best Buy has also been active in responsible technology recycling, having processed over two billion pounds of electronic materials. Best Buy will even come to your home to pick up unwanted electronics and ensure they either get refurbished or recycled in a responsible way.
