to handle the market. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. or tweet me @jimcramer. always searching for a piece of land to rest your weary head. we can't find much. that's why on a day where the dow plunged 178 points, s&p 1.42% and the nasdaq nose dived 1.82% although those are up substantially from the lows. we have to go back to the checklist. the one i created last month told us to be careful and not be aggressive. be a seller rather than a buyer into strength. to refresh we have been using a checklist. what could put an end to the pain. one, the fed has to give clarity about where it stands with raising interest rates. the real market has slowed since december but employment hasn't as we saw friday.
have been slammed. fed is in a bind. we have low unemployment. they are worried about the economy over heating. janet yellen traces the congress on wednesday. secondly, we need resolutions of political uncertainty. on the eve of the new hampshire primary is situation is deteriorated from when we created the checklist. we have no idea who the candidates will be and the positions on both sides have hardened against business. anyone listening to hillary clinton realizeses she wants to outdo bernie sanders in contempt for wall street which means contempt for your portfolio. bad. check's a real no show. third, we need china to get ready. the stock market is closed for the new year. no check. just a respite. fourth, a commodity bottom. all i can say is they are trying hard. maybe related to a weaker dollar. too early to decide at this point.
crude has been trying to make a stand at $30. i don't know why it should hold here. oil has been acting -- it acts better. but it's not stable. the cle delaware cline in crude continues to amass the limited partnerships. no bottom in sight. the hedge funds and port foalle owe managers like to show they need oil exposure. six, we want to see some improvement in the geopolitical scene. this was a problem when north korea exploded what people thought was a hydrogen bomb. the north koreaen i can'ts were at it with a rocket launch. no check for that box. we need the zombie companies put to death. in chesapeake, it plunges 33 on concerns it could strug toll pay a maturity that comes due next month. chesapeake will have a ripple
banks if it can't raise capital. we have to watch because it is a proximate cause of the weakness you saw in the oil patch and in finance. we were hoping to get releaf from the super freaking strong dollar. here is a surprise. because of the decline in the dollar versus the euro the exchange rate is back. that's positive. even if the dollar means strong versus other currencies. i can't call an all clear. it would be a fabulous change for international companies in the pharmaceutical industry. it makes me bullish toward the consumer packaged goods. i like those stocks. i wish the dollar would get weaker so the currencies know about the pe so but i won't sniff when it's unchanged year over year. i want to check it off almost. sorry. major negative. none. ten, a return to the healthy ipo market. forget it. there are no ipos. this is one of the worst we have
bad for the unicorns. 11, we are afraid of peaks in the economy. we have been looking at stocks of cell phone makers, awesome and home builders for the sign of a bottom maybe. no. not at all. stocks keep falling. we have to wonder if the aircraft cycle is taking a break. can't afford to lose that one. we can't take a break. 12, we need sentiment to get negative. sure, stocks are down. the dow jones industrial average hasn't taken out the january lows. we don't know if we are sold yet. it seems negative but not enough to save on the important market bottom which wouldle acquire negative oscillator figure. now it's hanging in. unbelievably. 13, we want sector leadership to expand beyond f.a.n.g., facebook, amazon, net flick and google now alpha bit. the stocks are at the apex. there is no leadership now
we want to see. gold is on fire. a reminder of why we want to have some in the port foalle owes. finally want to see some of the favorite mostly domestic companies doing better because of oil. we have gone through a huge part of earnings season and other than clorox no companies have experienced a break in cheaper gasoline or fuel. my daughter and i paid 1.82 for regular gasoline. we bought two coffees at dutch bros, two thumbs up. maybe we're the only two beneficiaries of the decline of fuel prices. it put it together, i feel compelled to add a new box. number 15, credit issues need to be resolved. we are hearing from company that is creditors become harder to come by. at the same time, there is total fear about the european banks and credit issues they may have. look at the stock prices.
the issue is front and center. could overwhelm oh item ifs they aren't careful. bottom line. we haven't foun our footing because we haven't been able to check off boxes. we added a toxic one. i say you can nibble at the stocks of companies youle really like but if we rally, you need to sell something, raise cash. get ready for lower stock prices. there are not enough check marks to make me confident we have a real bottom although we could get a training bounce after the certainly due after the hideous action of the last few days. i want to check that dollar box. let's go to neil in colorado. neil. >> jim, chipotle shares are seemingly selling for half of what they were five to six
is this a good time to buy some? >> they had a big meeting today. le i'm putting a half check up there, not a full check. i feel confident chipotle is on the comeback. i was trying to make it so you could get it at 400. i'm being greedy. i think you can buy chipotle because the bad news is out. i think the good news isn't. let's go to ben in texas. >> caller: boo-yah. >> boo-yah. >> caller: i'm looking at gillead. good price to earn ings ratio >> right. return on investment. considering the political head winds is this a good time to >> i was going to say if it weren't for the political head winds it would be. they are just nightmarish. i'm talking nightmaish for pharmaceuticals. -- good to have something positive to say. the euro year over year is
the checklist still reigns. until we raise cash, just be careful. maybe nibble at stocks you like. no hurry. looking to sell if it goes higher. things look grim. i'm cutting open the cadaver to get a sense of what went wrong. it was a rough day on the averages. don't miss why the west coast is the best coast for buying opportunities. i could use california dreaming. i'm putting last week's interviews in perspective focusing on stocks to watch. stick with cramer. >> announcer: don't miss a second of "mad money." follow @jimcramer on twitter. have a question? tweet cramer, #madtweets. send jim an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 1-800-743-cnbc.

the reason, we have two horrific forecasts from tech stocks, linkedin and tabo software. both reported in line results but the call commentary was negative enough to crush the stocks like tin cans. linkedin lose ing 44 and 49% for tableau . particularly the social cloud cohort went into a tail spin. the pin action was alarming and it's important for us to understand what went wro here. that's why tonight we are going full bore, all right? full bore csi style doing an autopsy of what went wrong at
helping recruiters find job openings. linkedin was a high flying stock the cause of death, only looked at the headline numbers in the past quarter the results were kind of solid. when you check out the guidance, sales and earn ings forecast for 2016 were lowerer than wall street was expecting. the company lost $11 million billion of market capitalization in a single session. it's like finding ligature marks on a body to extend the metaphor. linkedin got hit with cuts with half the wall street terms turning against the network in the blink of an eye. unusual as analysts excuse it from earn ings misses before. not this time.
sense of what went wrong here. linkedin gave a bleak outlook for 2016. management came out and said they are seeing serious weakness in the middle east, africa which is a depar temperature from what other cloud plays said about the regions. linkedin predicted continued weakness. worry they are pointing out the ways they are vulnerable to macro economic weakness. that changed the way people view the stock. it become cyclical overnight. before friday these companies were seen as secular growth global economy to do well. linked in told you different as the worldwide weakness causes a deceleration in hiring revenue growth from the low 30s last year to low 20s going forward. major: out of the blue linkedin plans to phase out a stand alone marketing tool to help
sales teams out of mo where. management was positive about it a quarter ago. there are signs of life at linkedin. it is cyclical but businesses are getting killed. grew by 85% year to year. management is looking strong among the regular subscribers. they had a story to tell. the question is how do we value linkedin now that the stock lost momentum. suggesting you can pay 40 times next year's earning downs from 50 before linkedin reported giving you a $1555 price target. -- $155. even though the expectations have been reset, we need the same thing to happen with the shareholder base as the overly optimistic we can't get wiped out. don't be surprised to see forced hedge fund selling. the firm's credibility is shot
they just reported so not for another three months. how about tableau software. the company is next to nothing in common with linked in. it is not a mobile social play at all. it is data analytics. what's the cause of death here. the headline numbers from the quarter looked okay. the guidance, a disaster for both the next quarter and full 2016 fiscal year. as analysts fell all over themselves to downgrade the stock it closed at the lowest level ever and it continued today down nearly 10%. on the conference call management acknowledged the availability of cheap low end products was planning on slower growth with the ceo saying the dynamic is crowded and difficult and they will certainly grab some market and have some success. beyond that tableau saw a desell radiation. just doesn't seem right. it is down from 57% in the
the existing customers would be more cautious with customers and they are still giving them more business. not as quickly as they used to. while tableau's international business was strong the bulk of sales come from the u.s. and canada which grew at 35%. i know, measly but down from from the previous quart. tableau's growth is decelerating and that's the opposite of what wall street wants. money managers will pay for accelerating revenue growth but don't know what to do with decelerating so they sell it. tableau is a viable, well run company not growing like it used to and growth is the reason to own it. that's why the high growth performance managers own it. once growth decelerates we are unclear. after the huge selloff friday continuing to climb today and it was down tableau trades now at
down from 90 before the quarter. pricy. there are low price competitors coming in. perhaps it should be cheaper. a better run company with expo sure to cloud is selling at 55 times earns. that seems wrong to me. the older companies like microsoft sell for 16 times earn ings. that's attractive to me. tableau should be between the two so there is more down side. the pin action from linkedin and tableau was merciless. consider splunk. they help companies clean data in real time. they released no data on friday and the stock plunged 25%. slammed again today 12%. cause of death for splunk, guilt by association. tableau software is hurting everyone in the space as investorings worry the industry
trouble. the weakness created a sell off in the whole high growth cohort for social, cloud and analytics. the other companies may be doing fine. but yelp issued numbers midday. not giving me comfort. you have to trade lightly. they are just too darn risky. there will be a time when the selling is over done and it could be soon given the carnage. stay tuned. but not yet. much more mad money ahead. i'm giving you the post game wrap up. don't miss my take on what might be worth owning. then i will reveal what could be the single most important factor for wall street going forward. your callses rapid fire in tonight's edition of the lightning round. why don't you stick with cramer. i couldn't sleep and get up in time. then i found aleve pm.

welcome to cnbc one market in the heart of san francisco. >> we are not just transforming the world of creative. we are moving every business to online. >> in a fragmented market people turn to brands they could trust. these devices are saving lives. >> every year we have delivered three new versions of sales force. no enterprise software delivered that rate of innovation. we are a technology company. change ing the way athletes
live. >> say "boo-yah," please. >> boo-yah. >> it's time to put the past week's interviews in perspective. granted comments from ceos of individual companies may not be that relevant in an environment where the bear runs freely. when we don't pay attention we miss opportunities as all the team that is matter is the heft iest of cash positions. despite the sell-off i want to give you insight into what i heard because it wasn't as grim as today's terrible action would in fact some of the stocks are moving nicely. i am going to group them in terms of opportunity because you can consider stocks worth buying on the way down. none of the stocks should be bought if they are flying up. the way to buy weakness or you will get hurt. when i say buy you should understand me as presuming weakness, not strength. the first stock you can buy is verizon. this is a company in the sweet spot of technology with capital preservation so important now
no wonder it hit a high in the middle of friday's con florida immigration. lowell mcadam is in the cat bird seat for technology. verizon, the network with the strongest signals and best record on dropped calls that defines success in a world where other companies in the sector are struggling. he said the claims of others like t-mobile. even though sprint didn't have much. seems like it could be well appointed. verizon works closely with apple. it will feature the iphone 7 quite prom lently and it is a significant upgrade. given the slow valuation and the coming upgrade that could exceed a billion devices with revenue rolling in. apple is one of the ownable pure techs now.
interested in the nfl and as we learned in a news worthy item friday, yahoo! which let's say he dropped this bomb. >> we said we would look at it. i think the board has been responsible in how they are doing this. very deliberately, logically. we have to understand the trends we are seeing and the results now. at the right price i think marrying up some of the assets under tim armstrong's leadership would be a good thing to invest in. >> sounds like a green light to me. with this cash flow in the critical technology verizon is a monster go to name in the market. dividend, huge. support, terrific. it sounds odd oh. it's all about cutting edge tech, beating the competition. next would be yum brands. in my opinion with the stock at $67 the impending break up isn't reflected correctly.
the colossal buyback in here now. one of the most intense on the new york stock exchange at yum prepares for the spin off. i like the prospects in china and the rest of the world. you could hear creed when i called it plodding. it is growing faster than many realize allowing for a good income scream. it could be in offing. i was taken with the taco bell numbers. thought they were aided by chipotle's weakness but the two have different ethos. kfc is on a solid footing, too. you will end up rouning the rest of the business at a sizable discount. china is less clear. kfc's annual, some of the bad problem quarters because pizza hut is so muddled. i didn't hear anything good about the recent numbers which are suboptimal. with the china business you are
kfc's growth could obscure the weakness until pizza hut is fixed and that could be the case. otherwise you are hoping it's kfc. yum is the story that works in this environment. if i'm right that pizza hut will improve you can buy it. i like these levels. clorox had a strong quarter with growth that's accelerated as the month went on. there is a larger share in part by connect ing through social media. clorox is known for innovation. so much as line extensions. i question it when i look at burt's bees. the health and wellness. wow, i like the stuff. the natural organic issue of lipstick will resonate. also most people believe personal endorsements aren't that important. consumer packaged good sector. the deployment of ste fen curry
water brand could resonate. the warm weather helped kingsford charcoal. finally what clorox did in brazil to crush the profits of companies out there. no wonder the stock rallied. next, i would have to consider paypal an option. portfolio managers want financials. they wnt financial lite companies like this one or other credit card companies because the sector is awful. dan sculman is doing so much right. after today pay pal's valuation it's cheaper than visa or master card given the faster growth and appeal to millennials. venmo will be the verb for transferring money. the consumer business operations are on track. plus, paypal had a huge cash generation with a $2 billion buy back to give the stock protection but you didn't see it
plus.com. let me give you ale can he recall -- controversialle one, ford motor. we could get fed rate hikes and housing and employment slow down. i'm shocked at gm or ford to move higher at all. these stocks define the recession thesis. i don't think there is a way out but to sit there, connect dividends and for people who no longer believe the economy is falling off a cliff. ford stock opened up so maybe somebody listened to the interview. finally wells fargo which is a big hedge that allows you to have a chit in the higher interest game. that wealth will soar. i would buy this one closer to 3.5% yield around 42, 43 versus the current yield.
the stock hit a 52-week low. probably closer to a bottom than maybe most think. here is the bottom line. yes, this is a difficult moment. there are high quality stocks you can buy into weakness. verizon, yum, paypal, ford and wells fargo. i would endorse it. fozzy in colorado. >> caller: hey, jimmy. boo-yah from colorado here! >> boo-yah. >> caller: i want to talk yahoo! >> okay. >> caller: looks like after the bell there could be a tax-free deal. what do you think the chances are? >> i don't know. one of the things i thought was lowell mcadam broke well on the show. thank you to lowell. at the right price he's there and the right price is here with the spin off you mentioned at ze ro. zero is a good price to pay and a couple billion more than that is still good for verizon. bud in ohio. bud. >> hey, jim. boo-yah!
>> caller: thank you for everything you do for us. currently i'm thinking i might i have owned boeing as my allocation to the manufacturing sector for a couple of years. if oil is going to be lower for longer, i'm afraid the fuel efficiency of the dreamliner especially when airbus has the -- >> right. >> caller: i still would like the manufacturing company with a solid dividend. if i swap out of boeing what do you recommend? >> general electric, ge. boeing ice got a 3.65% yield. ge is a 3.72% yield. i'm concerned about the aerospace cycle. although if boeing had a not great quarter and ge had a good one. i'm not going to fight about it. it's a good stock. short-term there are issues after the last quarter. it is a difficult market with opportunity out there. check out the high quality stock
much more "mad money" ahead. do you know what's worth owning? ahead i have the stocks to keep an eye on in this hideous market when it comes to coming off the sidelines. trying to find your footing in the market? easier said than done and it's the monday after the big game, but i'm not calling it in. i'm taking on a storm of your stocks in tonight's edition of "the lightning round." >> announcer: tomorrow, kick off the trading day with squawk on the street, live from post 9 at the nyse . >> clorox over chipotle. not to eat. i want to say that up front. the idea of drinking clorox is abhorrent. i think we should've taken a left at the river. tarzan know where tarzan go! tarzan does not know where tarzan go. hey, excuse me,
waterfall? no, me tarzan, king of jungle. why don't you want to just ask somebody? if you're a couple, you fight over directions. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. oh ohhhhh it's what you do. ohhhhhh! do you have to do that right in my ear? ugh! heartburn! no one burns on my watch! try alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. they work fast and don't taste chalky. mmm...amazing. i have heartburn. alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. enjoy the relief. this is mineral build up it collects leaving gross germ-ridden stains. clorox toilet bowl cleaner with bleach is no match for that. but lysol power toilet bowl cleaner eliminates mineral build-up effortlessly.
man (sternly): where do you think you're going? mr. mucus: to work, with you. it's taco tuesday. man: you're not coming. i took mucinex to help get rid of my mucusy congestion. i'm good all day. [announcer:] mucinex keeps working. not 4, not 6, but 12 hours. let's end this take one of those pillows and take a big smell. they smell really fresh what if we told you we washed these sheets 7 days ago. really? no way downy? downy fabric conditioner give us a week, and we'll change your bed forever. want more freshness?
the whole cohort is in the grips of the bear. hard to assess whether anything is worth buying until the market comes down. i heard from enough high quality growth companies in san francisco last week. they have to make projections. the most obvious growth stocks to keep an eye on is under armor. it just reported a terrific quarter when it wasn't supposed to. because of the warm weather didn't impact it negatively at
the company is getting little to no credit for the huge investment connecting fitness devices and it represents a fabulous annuity stream. i have said no one makes money long term betting against kevin plank. i feel no different after spend ing time in the last week. you could argue this stock shouldn't trade below where it was when we anticipated the shortfall, $4 from where it is now. it did close down 6%. under armour is one of my favorite broken stocks. i used to throw the monopoly board at my sister when she beat me. maybe it is acceptable, albeit from an 3467 and not just a sore loser like i was. then there are tech names that frankly seem indistinguishable here. adobe and sales force.com. both stocks in the cloud mobile
are in freefall because of linked in's guidance and tableau's miss. two hideous situations. i think salesforce.com and adobe are doing well. that's what the ceos told me. i have no reason not to believe them. right up there. you're really out there if you buy them. i wonder how much take over premium sales force.com had in the 70s. the stock traded in the 70s. we heard chatter about how microsoft may buy them. where did the rumor go? i do know from my years of studying salesforce the lost customer thesis that made the rounds and caused the stock to go down doesn't hold you are with a. to me tableau software isn't analagous. but there is a play on social and cloud as well as china.
the one thing the stocks have going for them is they have cratered. at my old hedge fund i would listen but most of you aren't that nimble. i don't want to be bullish. especially given that adobe and salesforce closed up from the lows although they finished down about 5% and 7% respectively. i love to say that intelle should be bought because of the dividend but it. still there is the deal in its pocket now. that's a higher growth business than the current emphasis. maybe numbers are low. i'm drawn to the stock and the ceo because it sells at 12 times earn ings with a 3.6% yield. s that's a terrific stat and intelle owns the pc business which is saying something and generates a lot of cash. i would buy this closer to the 52-week low around 25.
noninternet tech move we have from last summer. that may be a chicken way to play but if you aren't a tad bit of a checken here in this environment i think you're crazy. while the social, mobile and cloud stocks, few have more going for them than palo alto networks. the collapse made it cheaper than sales force.com. that's unusual. but the group had outperformed for so long the stock is at more than 70% from two years ago. a lot of stocks are cutting through low. it is the best soup to nuts security offering out there. i'm confident there is no pause in spending for this board level issue. mark mclaughlin didn't give us a reason to think otherwise. it is one of the wear where she stops nobody knows situations. today alone, palo alto has what i regard ises as a reasonable market cap versus total adjustable market.
as absurd as it is, sales force can be taken over. i have no idea how tole value fitbit as witnessed by the fact that i have liked it since it became public. i said to ring the register in the high 40s and pounded the table in the 20 ths. that was wrong. now it's at 14 today. got it wrong. i think fitbit's ceo is doing a markablele job transforming it into a health and wellness company that sales devices which should give it a decrept price. instead it is being valued like fossil or something. if you study the price point meaning there is stuff inside it that's worth something. if you look at what a lot of people think they think it is like the apple watch. it's a different universe. plus the latest quarter we'lle hear about in two weeks was terrific and the insiders aren't dumping down.
no one wants fitbit. this isn't the same price. this is a lot more expensive. it's not a health and wellness device. it's a cool thing. although fitbit has some level of, look, this is a fit bit. okay? it's a different thing. there. that's show and tell. fitbit is caught up in the vortex of the unicorns but sells for less than 15 times earn ings. people think any company that became public in the recent year must be over valued. fitbit is so cheap and is software so proprietary you should own it. i like it higher. next on the watch list, if yahoo! were interested in growing it should look at the company that owns the ticket and concert market live nation. the company is growing by taking over concerts, venues and festivals and artists want to play at live nation venues because that's where the money
old days they made their money from albums and used the concerts to promote. now they make the money on concerts. live nation's lack of earnings despite the cash flow it's hard to make a case using traditional metrics. flex can be bought for eight times earns. 5.4 billion dollar market cap. that makes no sense to me. nobody wants to own stocks of manufacturers. except for the company itself. it had 777 million shares. now just 454 million. the ceo, if you want to know they are different look at nike's conference call where the company talked about relying on
than everybody else. including automotive, health care and the internet of things devices makes this a play on the hottest trends but no one seems to care at all. here's the bottom line. the stocks suffer from a lack of faith. a total lack of faith that the future can be as good as the past. i find it so damning and negative but it is the market's mind driving stocks lower going into recession. it doesn't matter what i say. that's the market's agenda until proven otherwise. one oh winner to point out, congratulations to brett favre for being inducted into the nfl hall of fame. boo-yah! you get a cold. you can't breathe through your nose. suddenly, you're a mouthbreather. a mouthbreather! how can anyone sleep like that? well, just put on a breathe right strip and pow! it instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alone.
