      (1) Jim Cramer names 4 stocks that can endure the Fed’s ‘aggressive tightening cycle’ (

      • CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Wednesday offered four stocks that he believes can keep investors steady through market turmoil.
        • Walt Disney: “Unlike Netflix and its one-hit wonders, Disney has a massive, lucrative theme park complex, along with a stable of iconic franchises. … Disney should not be tarred with the same broad brush as Netflix,” Cramer said, referring to Netflix’s dismal latest quarterly results.
        • Procter & Gamble Co: “Because Procter has some of the finest brands in the world, it was able to pass on those price increases at will. Procter is the classic stock for this moment: It makes things at a profit while being one of the great returners of capital,” Cramer said.
        • Johnson & Johnson: “What is JNJ? How about the blue chip with the best balance sheet in America that has an amazing dividend and buyback,” Cramer said.
        • Morgan Stanley: “Morgan Stanley is the bank that arguably performed the best, as well as maybe Bank of America,” Cramer said.
      • “As someone who thinks it’s a good idea to stay in the market, I’m urging you to consider companies that fit the funnel … while avoiding almost anything else,” he said.

      Ticker: DIS [Note: Charitable trust bought DIS, plan to keep buying more.], PG, JNJ, MS [Note: Charitable trust bought more MS last week]

      • “We bought some Disney today for the Charitable Trust. … I like the rest of the business and think the streaming service is taking share. I’m also intrigued, by the way, by Paramount Global,” he said.

      Ticker: NFLX, DIS, PARA


      (3) Off-the-Charts: Cramer explains why seasoned technical analyst Larry Williams expects inflation to peak and the market to rally into June (

      • “The charts and the history, as interpreted by Larry Williams, suggest one crazy thing, which is that inflation could soon peak, and … the stock market’s bottoming and due for a nice broad rally given from here to the end of June,” the “Mad Money” host said.
      • “This methodology can’t tell you the size of a potential move, but it’s surprisingly reliable when it comes to predicting the market’s overall direction,” he added.

      • CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Wednesday advised investors to buy Halliburton stock while it’s down after a less-than-ideal quarter from industry peer Baker Hughes.

      (5) Cramer’s lightning round: AstraZeneca is a pass (

      • Intuitive Surgical Inc: “ISRG is one of those stocks – you must not look at it on a day-to-day basis. You look at it on a year-to-year basis, that’s how good their machines are.”
      • Banco Santander SA: “I looked at it multiple times to own it for the Charitable Trust. I just can’t summon myself to pull the trigger. I’m afraid I’ll move it to $4. I think Banco Santander is excellent.”
      • Atlantica Sustainable Infrastructure PLC: “That is a foreign company that I need to know more about, and I promise I will do more on it.”
      • Uranium Energy Corp: “Very speculative stock. It’s had a very big run. Be ready to get cut in half or double. And those are typically the kinds of stocks that I do not recommend.”
      • US Bancorp: “It’s a very well-run bank, but I prefer the bank of Morgan Stanley.”
      • Axon Enterprise Inc: “Very well-run company … it’s just a terrific company.”
      • OneMain Holdings Inc: “Too risky at this point in the cycle, particularly if the Fed really does give us a real slowdown.”
      • Brunswick Corp: “I’m going to be really straightforward here. The market doesn’t like this stock and doesn’t think it will come back, and I’m trying to disagree with the market, because I think it’s such a good company.”
      • Regions Financial Corp: “Very smart bank. Very well run … This is a terrific company. Believe me, it won’t stay independent forever it if stays down at this price. It’s just way too good.”
      • AstraZeneca PLC: “I can’t chase it up here. I think it’s gotten more expensive versus some other very, very good drug companies. So I’m going to have to say that you should take a pass on that.”

      Ticker: ISRG, SAN [favorite bank in Europe] AY, UEC, USB, AXON, OMF, BC, RF, AZN
