      (1) Investors cannot wait for inflation to peak before they start to buy stocks, says Jim Cramer (

      Words of CEOs this earning season to make sense of where the market could be headed: (i) Bank,(ii) transport(eg. Union Pacific – all time high today), (iii) Retail (eg. PG, COST, HD, WMT, AMZN, LOW); (iv) Oil; (v) Chemical (eg. DOW, PPG, Steel); (vi) (eg. NUE [missed number, but buying opportunity]); (vii) Semiconductor shortage (eg. MU)

      Bottom Line: The averages have been gun jumping on peak inflation for the last ten days. Because the big guys can’t afford to wait. And Neither can you.

      (5) Cramer’s lightning round: I prefer to be in Square over Marqeta (

      • FedEx: “We don’t care where it came from, we care where it’s going to. … Here’s the deal: I actually, for the charitable trust, sold a little UPS today. Why? Because the stock is up in a straight line, and so is FedEx. I think you got to trim a little, just because it keeps disappointing I don’t think it’s going to stop disappointing.”
      • Cassava Sciences: “Remember, this is an incredibly speculative situation. Here’s the way I handle this: Only with speculative dollars, only with money you can lose, because what you need is a takeout, and we don’t know whether they’re going to get a takeout. But that’s what propels these stocks, big-cap pharma that doesn’t have a pipeline.”
      • Dow Inc.: “The market seems to think that some of these chemical prices, including polyurethane, are peaking. I disagree. … I think if you can get that stock at a 5%, which means it’s a little bit lower from here, I think it’s a good idea [to add to your position]. Jim Fitterling, doing a terrific job.”
      • Marqeta Inc.: “It’s kind of like another one of these Squares. We just see so many. It’s going to go up, but I prefer to be in Square.”
