Jim Cramer has a direct message to investors: tread cautiously this month.
“Welcome to September, the most treacherous of months,” Cramer said in a recent Real Money column. “Be ready for volatility — a Wall Street code word for a selloff.”
Cramer is a huge believer that the stock market is driven not just by the Federal Reserve, but by how companies are doing. “Earnings, sales, the pedestrian day-to-day stuff is what I care about, because it’s what drives the vast majority of individual moves,” he noted. “The numbers, the reports, have been phenomenal for ages. We have been spoiled by earnings surprises seemingly forever, positive earnings surprises.”
But that was then and this is now.
“This week, we’re seeing the nasty side of earnings surprises, the downside, and we’re not used to it,” Cramer added. “Two venerable companies, Sherwin-Williams (SHW) and PulteGroup (PHM) reported disappointing quarters owning to supply chain problems and inflationary raw material costs. These comments come on top of [the] announcement from PPG (PPG) , the coatings company, which surprised a second time with a predicted shortfall.”
