CNBC’s Jim Cramer was shudder at to accredit the Dow’s record day to the fundamentals.
“This is not a rally,” the “Mad Money” host state on Monday. “This is really a redistribution. It’s not a bet on the future, it’s a wager that some earnings appraises are going higher while others just stay the same.”
In other phrases, Monday’s market rotation was “100 percent about tax reform,” Cramer demanded. The successful passage of the tax reform bill in the Senate brings domestic public limited companies closer to a large, earnings-additive tax cut.
But more internationally oriented companies, go for most of tech, don’t get much of a boost except for repatriation, which is why the tech-heavy Nasdaq suffered as the Dow turn out, Cramer said.
“It’s like Congress has waved a magic wand at every rope company, railroad, retailer and restaurant, as well as a smattering of industrials that participate in great U.S. exposure, and that wand has radically raised earnings for 2018,” Cramer verbalized.
Therein lies the key to the market’s action: stocks move based on whether their earnings values are too high or too low, the “Mad Money” host explained. As it stands, tax reform would proffer the estimates too low.
And investors don’t particularly care how earnings become better than anticipated, Cramer said. It could come from management buying ignore stock to artificially boost the share price. All that matters is the irrevocable result.
“The numbers are all that matters, and the numbers just got better as a result ofs to this tax cut,” Cramer said. “So when the dust settles, the analysts desire have to raise their estimates, and we know that’s the fuel that sends amasses higher.”
It’s still possible that the market rotation reverses and fat floods back into the tech stocks, but Cramer told investors not to grip their breath.
Even if tech companies are doing much improved than domestic retailers and restaurants, tax cuts could bring monumental earnings boosts to the retailers, which is what matters to deep-pocketed, stock-moving Go broke Street professionals, he said.
“The bottom line: I don’t know how much excite is left in this rotation unless analysts get ahead of things and construct their estimates tomorrow,” Cramer said. “If they don’t, then I reckon the money starts flowing back into tech eventually — dialect mayhap later this week if they keep falling at this pace — but if we do get a categorize of estimate [bumps] for the domestics, we’ll see more days like today, where the bifurcation turn over a completes for a ‘heaven and purgatory’ scenario.”
