Keep your rally cap on your head, because there's nothing else to hang it on, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Tuesday. After another disappointing day in the markets, Cramer said investors are desperate to find something to hang their hats on. The only problem? There's nothing that's working.
Much of the recent rally was fueled by FOMO, or “fear of missing out.” But as we approach mid-September, timing is everything, Cramer noted, and it may no longer be prudent to buy the dips.
Today was the unveiling of Apple's AAPL newest iPhones, and typically, the stock would run up ahead of the news. That made the dip that followed the announcement a buying opportunity. But not this year, as the stock is still reeling from last week's court ruling. Then there's Wynn Resorts WYNN, which was supposed to be a reopening play in both Vegas and Macau. That was until COVID saw a resurgence and China cracked down on gambling. Even the drug stocks are under pressure as talk in Washington of price controls resurfaces.
