Jim Cramer lists the best and worst members of the S&P 500 in the third quarter.
Jim Cramer of CNBC shared his take on the gains and losses of S&P 500 stocks in the third quarter on Tuesday.
“This is a tough market with harsh criteria. Constellation Energy and Enphase may meet those criteria, but everything else in the winning circle seems capricious, but what about the losers? Just not enough to take risks,” he said.
- Constellation Energy
Kramer said the company is “perfectly set up” for the ESG movement.
“Stocks are volatile, but this has been a great buy on every dip. I bet it will continue to do so,” he said.
Cramer named the handicrafts company Amazon.
He predicted that the company’s stock could continue to rise if Netflix didn’t spoil the launch of its advertising tier.
Kramer said he believes in the company’s Alzheimer’s drug, although he believes Eli Lilly’s drug would be better.
- Statutory Communications
Cramer said that while the company is profitable, the lack of growth means its stock is not going anywhere.
The stock is likely to sit in the penalty chamber for at least three to six months following the company’s recent decline in earnings and global recession warnings, he said.
- Lumen Technology
Kramer said he would not touch this stock with a 10-foot pole.
The FDA inspection of the company’s plant, which delayed the distribution of Moderna’s Covid booster, likely weighed on Catalent’s stock performance, he said.
- VF Corporation
Cramer said he did not believe in the ability of apparel stocks to rise in the current inflationary environment.
