CNBC Investing Club: Jim Cramer’s Latest Homestretch Audio Feature
Every weekday, the CNBC Investing Club with Jim Cramer shares the Homestretch audio feature just in time for the last hour of trading on Wall Street. Here’s today’s edition.
Tech Stocks Take a Hit
On Thursday, the Magnificent 7 and tech stocks were once again feeling the pain. Despite yields inching higher, there isn’t a specific catalyst causing the downward moves. Earlier this week, the team mentioned that the Big Tech names had been performing well throughout the year, and investors were taking profits. The team made adjustments to their positions in Meta Platforms (META) and Alphabet (GOOGL) by trimming both stocks after positive earnings. This allowed them to free up cash to build up their position in quality companies like Eaton (ETN).
The team also decided to trim their position in industrial giant Emerson Electric (EMR) to purchase shares in Eaton. Eaton is exposed to key markets such as data centers, industrial, and residential buildings, making it a good growth stock in the industrials sector.
Bank Stocks and Estee Lauder
Meanwhile, bank stocks were on the rise during midday trading. Jim believes that the sector may not lead the market, but he sees Club holding Wells Fargo (WFC) as a buy and recommends buying Morgan Stanley (MS) aggressively due to its cheap valuation and solid dividend yield.
Shares of Estee Lauder (EL) also experienced a rebound, but the team is cautious about buying at the moment. They believe that the slowdown in China is impacting the sale of high-end cosmetics and are hoping for a consumer-focused stimulus program from the Chinese government to boost consumer activity and the economy.
