Retail giants report earnings, steer clear of ‘toxic’ stocks

CNBC’s Jim Kramer said Friday he’s breathing a sigh of relief because tumbling stocks have “already taken enough hits,” allowing investors to trade in a safer environment next week — although they still need to tread carefully.

“When we’ve been beaten to these levels, we get to a point where stocks that are usually clubbed have already taken enough hits, and that alone has allowed them to get at least a short-covering bounce, which today might have been, ‘the’mad money‘ said the host.

“Many stocks have finally come down to the point where it’s safe to be constructive, as long as you stay away from the most toxic areas, so I’m breathing a sigh of relief here,” he added.

stock soared Friday To conclude a volatile week of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 1.47% while the S&P 500 gained 2.39%. The Nasdaq Composite Index is up 3.82%.

Cramer indicated that he is watching St. Louis Federal Reserve Chairman James Bullard’s comments on inflation next week.

“He’s a hawk – he’s also the hawkish kind to me,” Kramer said. “Bullard knows it’s only going to be difficult to break the cycle of inflation if the Fed doesn’t act decisively right now.”
