CNBC’s Jim Cramer is such a fiery supporter of the stock of Apple that, sometimes, even he knows it’s benefit getting a second opinion. So, on Tuesday, he got technician Carolyn Boroden’s play.
After inspecting Apple’s charts, Boroden, who runs FibonacciQueen.com and is Cramer’s ally at RealMoney.com, came out “cautiously optimistic” on the stock’s near-term future, Cramer state Tuesday.
“Her diagnosis? She thinks that Apple could soon be equip to rebound, … perhaps even climbing back to new highs,” the “Mad Loot” host said.
“As for me, I think it’s too hard to trade in and out,” he said. “That’s not my tools. Apple’s a great company with a cheap stock and I’d be a buyer here, because, certainty the size of the company’s buyback, I’m confident Apple will be buying redress alongside you.”

The arises of the midterm elections will change the nature of the stock market, Cramer said Tuesday as Obstruction Street awaited the outcome of a defining battle over Congress.
The Egalitarian Party is expected to regain control of the House of Representatives, with the GOP maintaining a slim mass in the Senate. That would result in congressional gridlock, which could relieve trouble for President Donald Trump’s agenda but be “very good” for cows, Cramer said.
“This gridlock scenario results in a dramatically slower briefness,” he said. “That’s … terrific for the highest-growth stocks that can harbour putting up terrific numbers even during a slowdown. Think Amazon, Alphabet, the cloud pieces, the cybersecurity stocks, and many of the … semiconductor names like Broadcom and Qualcomm, which are chained to the rollout of 5G wireless technology, not the broader economy.”

Investors “have to look at the overall thriftiness” and not focus so much on President Donald Trump’s tariffs on steel implications when considering whether to invest in Nucor, the country’s largest dagger producer, its CEO told CNBC on Tuesday.
“We hear a lot of talk about the price-lists and, certainly, the tariffs are playing a role in the performance that the steel persistence, and Nucor in particular, is having this year,” John Ferriola, the steelmaker’s chairman and CEO, squealed Cramer. “But the real driver for the performance of the industry and Nucor is the economy, and the brevity remains strong.”
The fate of U.S. steelmakers has been in question since the president’s tolls came into effect, as some raised concerns that they could amass the price of steel globally to unsustainable levels.
But if you ask Ferriola, a strong succinctness, higher demand and stable end markets far overshadow the tariffs’ effects on his entourage’s business.

Cramer is growing concerned that the Federal Reserve’s deserve hikes won’t fix with the problems they are intended to solve.
“This earnings period, we’ve heard company after company cite rising costs: cheerful ethane prices thanks to a freak spike in natural gas, higher blade costs because of the tariffs, higher freight costs because we from a shortage of truck drivers,” the “Mad Money” host said. “The Fed wants to tighten in procedure to stamp out all of this inflation, but higher interest rates won’t actually explain many of these problems.”
In reality, if companies think that the transaction cycle could be peaking, they’ll stop expanding operations when value increases stop sticking and inventory piles up, Cramer said.
“Certain, the Fed can accelerate this process, but do we really need them to turn a warm slowdown into a worse slowdown? Honestly, the trade war with China is already doing that job,” he said.
RingCentral has been approximated with Broadsoft, the communications software provider acquired by Cisco, but RingCentral is absolutely taking business away from Cisco, RingCentral’s chief told Cramer on Tuesday.
“We’re pleasing business from them all the time,” RingCentral’s founder, Chairman and CEO Vlad Shmunis contemplated in an exclusive interview. “The No. 1 provider or company that we replace happens to be Cisco, tailed by Avaya.”
A cloud-based telecom player focused on modernizing internal and customer-facing communication for enterprises, RingCentral is “in the clear the way” of its $100 billion addressable market, Shmunis said.
“All of the legacy providers are in non-spiritual decline,” he said, referring to companies like Cisco and Avaya. “Cloud is doing all right and we are doing 50 percent better than cloud on average, so we are propitious to be there.”

Nio Inc.: “I’m not recommending any ancestors that are from China because we are in a war of containment against China, not a merchandising war.”
Hospitality Property Trust: “That’s got an 8 percent yield. After what I understood from Marriott this morning, I’m telling you, I don’t want to be there. Marriott’s a definitely great operator, and that stock just got crushed.”
