CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Friday released corporate income statements, which will be released in accordance with the revised trading schedule next week.
The comments by the Mad Money host followed a mixed session on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 in the red as investors around the world reacted to new coronavirus restrictions in some European countries. The tech Nasdaq is up 0.4%.
“Ever since the Delta option came along, all this Covid scare has turned into a buying opportunity … although at this point, few seem to be aware of it,” Kramer said.
Here’s what Kramer is seeing next week. US markets are closed on Thanksgiving Thursday and a shortened session on Friday. All revenue and earnings per share estimates are from FactSet.

“After this relentless downturn, I’m starting to wonder if there’s a real shopping opportunity here? This is definitely a terrific roadblock if you’re worried that Covid won’t go away. Let’s hear what they have to say when Zoom reports on Monday night, “Kramer said. They have a lot of money. They have a lot of options, a lot of options. We’ll make a judgment.”
