Stocks traded higher Wednesday as Federal Reserve officials maintained their belief that price increases from the recovering economy will be transitory and will ease toward the latter half of 2021.
TheStreet’s Katherine Ross and Jim Cramer discussed breaking news in the stock market. Cramer spoke about owning Tesla, Uber’s challenges and earnings from Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom.
Tesla: Buy Or Sell?
Cramer said Tesla is continuing to bottom and urged investors to buy the stock. “Today and tomorrow are the days that you must buy Tesla because 11 out of 11 times Tesla has been up after Memorial Day,” he said.
Uber: Buy Or Sell?
Earlier in May, Uber (UBER) – Get Report reported a decline in revenue for the first quarter and missed analysts’ expectations. Earnings topped estimates. Uber indicated it would pay drivers more to get cars back in service as the economy rebounds.
Cramer said Uber is “caught between a rock and a hard place because DoorDash (DASH) – Get Report is really coming after them when it comes to Uber Eats and Lyft (LYFT) – Get Report is coming on, too. I don’t want to own that stock,” he added.
Cramer said retail earnings are “on fire” and the only one “that disappointed was Nordstrom (JWN) – Get Report.”
“Urban Outfitters (URBN) – Get Report did a great job with fashion, Dick’s (DKS) – Get Report had a remarkable quarter. I mean, they blew it away. Abercrombie (ANF) – Get Report was good,” said Cramer.
