The probabilities are various, however must be found first

Shares fell on Friday despite a new proposal for coronavirus aid spending the new Biden administration hopes to pass, a sign that Wall Street players got exactly what was expected, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said.

President-elect Joe Biden, who will take office in five days, tabled a $ 1.9 trillion stimulus wish list that includes funds for assistance Families and businesses up to Covid-19 vaccines are common.

Despite the economic boom that could come with such a plan, the stock market has not been in the black as major US indices all had a negative week of trading.

“When an event occurs and the market gets exactly what it wants, but nothing more, this is treated as a reason to sell, not buy,” Cramer told Mad Money. “Biden’s stimulus bill only met expectations. It did not, so to speak, surpass the ‘stimulus whisper’.”

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 30,814.26, a decrease of 177 points and a decrease of 0.57% from Thursday. The S&P 500 fell 0.72% to 3,768.25 while the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.87% to 12,998.50.

The indices all fell about 1% or more this week.

Friday’s declines were compounded by the way bank stocks traded after several quarterly gains reported that morning to kick off earnings season. JPMorgan Chase beat analysts’ estimates, but the stock fell 1.79%. Citigroup and Wells Fargo had mixed results, with their stocks falling about 7% or more.

However, Cramer believed this to be misguided sell-offs and advised investors to wait three trading days before buying shares in JPMorgan or Wells Fargo, stressing that banks are preparing to do share buybacks and dividend increases this year.

“There are a lot of options. You just have to spot them first and find out if they are trades or investments,” he said. “In a trade you have to exit the moment you win. In an investment, you want to buy gradually as you go down and then wait for the story to pay off.”

Cramer announced his schedule for the coming week. All profit forecasts are based on FactSet estimates:

Tuesday: Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and Netflix wins

Goldman Sachs

  • Earnings release for the fourth quarter of 2020: 7:30 a.m. Conference call: 9:30 a.m.
  • Projected earnings per share: $ 7.39
  • Estimated Revenue: $ 9.99 billion

“Only a massive jump in earnings, based on both sales growth and lower spending, can take this stock higher,” said Cramer. “A normal beat isn’t enough, and we need a super … elevated forecast for this stock to recover.”

Bank of America

  • Earnings release for the fourth quarter of 2020: 6:45 am; Conference call: 8:30 a.m.
  • Projected EPS: 55 cents
  • Estimated Revenue: $ 20.58 billion

“Like Goldman Sachs, Bank of America is smoking. In the past few months it has gone from $ 24 to $ 33,” he said. “Again, when expectations are so high, it’s not enough to be good, you have to be great.”

Netflix

  • Earnings release for the fourth quarter of 2020: 4 p.m. Conference call: 6 p.m.
  • Projected earnings per share: $ 1.36
  • Estimated Revenue: $ 6.62 billion

“I think Netflix could finally suffer from fatigue these days thanks to the new competition,” said the host. “If Netflix wants to get its groove back, it has to blow the numbers away, but I’m not holding my breath.”

Wednesday: earnings from UnitedHealth, Procter & Gamble and Morgan Stanley

UnitedHealth Group

  • Earnings release for the fourth quarter of 2020: ahead of the market; Conference call: 8:45 a.m.

Procter & Gamble

“I would be shocked if Morgan Stanley didn’t exceed expectations,” said the hosts. “CEO James Gorman has navigated brokerage waters better than anyone, except maybe the folks at Robinhood. The only problem I see here is with Gorman himself. He’s so damn selfless it may make the quarter sound less impressive than that it is.” . “

IBM

  • Projected earnings per share: $ 1.81
  • Estimated Revenue: $ 20.65 billion

Intel
