The stock market is creating buying opportunities

CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Friday that investors should be ready to find buying opportunities on the stock market while the earnings season is in full swing.

When companies report quarterly results, market participants are quick to digest the numbers and Wall Street is prone to make a lot of mistakes, he said, citing trade measures in Honeywell and American Express as an example.

“Next week there will be reports that encounter negativity and not all of them will be really bad. So I urge you to take advantage of this weakness,” said the Mad Money host.

Given that well-known brand names like Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks, and Amazon are set to report, this will be the most brutal part of the earnings season, he added.

“As we get closer to the next five days of earnings, you need to think about what is being hit as badly as what is working, as this market creates some incredible buying opportunities,” said Cramer.

Cramer announced his schedule for the coming week. The earnings per share forecasts are based on FactSet estimates:

Monday: Tesla

Tesla

  • Publication of results Q1 2021: after the start of the market; Conference call: 5:30 p.m.
  • Projected EPS: 75 cents
  • Estimated Revenue: $ 10.48 billion

“These numbers don’t just affect Tesla itself. There are dozen of electric vehicle SPACs, smaller inventories that Tesla need to be successful as it gives legitimacy to the whole group,” Cramer said. “I like Tesla at these levels. I bet the quarter will be good.”

Tuesday: Alphabet, Microsoft, Starbucks and Advanced Micro

  • Projected EPS: 53 cents

  • Projected earnings per share: $ 2.34

“Judging from what we heard from Snap last night … I think you’d have to believe Facebook is going to knock it out of the park,” he said. “Once again, it’s not too late to be a buyer on Facebook as I think it’s reaching an all-time high.”
