Cramer: 'I don't trust this market at all' because it's so dependent on Trump tweets

CNBC’s Jim Cramer voiced concern about the staying power of the stock market’s bounce Tuesday following President Donald Trump’s latest tweetstorm on China trade and Monday’s sharp decline.

“I don’t trust this market at all,” Cramer warned on “Squawk on the Street” as stock futures pointed to a higher Wall Street open, which in fact came to pass through the morning. “[Trump] has made it so we got to wait to be able to buy.”

Cramer said he was troubled by Trump’s barrage of tweets Tuesday, calling them “a little erratic,” including the one about the Federal Reserve.

Trump is “really disturbing the zeitgeist of the stock market,” Cramer said. “He should knock the tweets off if he wants the Dow to start going up, at least today.”

On “Mad Money” on Monday evening — after the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 each lost about 2.4% on China’s tariff response to last week’s U.S. hike — Cramer said Wall Street is nearly oversold and investors should get ready to load up on names that can withstand higher tariffs.

However, in light of the uncertainty around Trump’s new tweets, Cramer on Tuesday advised investors to let things shake out, saying there may be a buying opportunity in stocks later in the session.

In late morning trading, the S&P 500 was making up about half of Monday’s losses, which had sent the index down for a total of nearly 5% from its May 1 intraday all-time high. So far in 2019, the S&P 500 has gained about 13% — and since the crushing Christmas Eve 2018 low, the index has soared more than 20%.

On Monday, China said it will raise tariffs, some to as high as 25%, on $60 billion in U.S. goods, in retaliation for the Trump administration’s decision last week to increase duties on $200 billion worth of Chinese products from 10% to 25%.

Meanwhile, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative is taking steps to prepare to slap tariffs on the remaining billions and billions of dollars worth of Chinese goods coming into the U.S.

U.S. stock index futures pared their losses after President Trump said China is coming this week to make a deal in a tweet.

Stock futures cut losses after Trump tweets that China is coming this week to make a deal

U.S. stock index futures pared their losses after President Trump said China is coming this week to make a deal in a tweet.

Dow futures fell 55 points, paring earlier losses and indicating a lower open of about 13 points. Futures on the S&P 500 were down about 0.2%. Nasdaq was also set to open lower.

Dow futures were down more than 100 points Wednesday morning on fears the U.S. and China would be unable to resolve a dispute over a proposed trade agreement before new tariffs threatened by President Donald Trump are implemented Friday. Chinese trade officials backtracked on key aspects of a trade deal draft, undercutting hopes that the Chinese delegation led by Vice Premier Liu He this week could salvage the deal, according to a Reuters report.

“Stocks are betting on a rebound in the global economy in coming quarters … If we get higher tariffs this week and talks break down between the U.S. and China, you can kiss that hope for [a] global economic rebound goodbye,” said Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group, in an email.

President Trump said in a Twitter post Sunday the U.S. would hike tariffs on Chinese goods as soon as Friday, which sparked a global sell-off. The Dow plunged more than 470 points on Tuesday, its biggest decline since January 3, as traders realized Trump’s threat was not just a negotiation tactic after U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer confirmed the higher levies are coming this week.

The Dow has lost nearly 540 points this week amid the trade dispute, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq are down more than 2% after both hitting all-time highs last week.

Data released Wednesday morning in China suggested that its trade surplus in April stood at $13.84 billion, well below expectations. However, its trade surplus with the U.S. rose to $21.01 billion in April from $20.5 billion in March.

Investors are also monitoring corporate earnings. Honda Motor, Toyota Motors, The New York Times, and Wendy’s will report their latest results before the bell. Disney and Fox will report after the closing bell.

So far, 88% of the S&P 500 companies have reported their first-quarter earnings. Earnings are beating by 6.7%, with 73% of companies exceeding their bottom-line estimates, according to Credit Suisse.

Here's what Wall Street is saying about Trump's tariff threat and what it means for investors

President Donald Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping meet business leaders at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, November 9, 2017.

Wall Street strategists urged calm after the latest threats from President Donald Trump after a series of tweets Sunday afternoon. Trump warned that tariffs on on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods could rise to 25% on Friday.

Stock futures are down more than 450 points.

“We think it is more likely that the increase will be narrowly avoided and believe the odds of tariffs increasing on Friday are 40%,” Goldman Sachs analysts said.

“Unless China walks away from the talks (which is not necessarily the same as Vice Premier Liu canceling his trip but rather having no talks at all), we do not expect an escalation of trade tensions into a trade war,” Citi said.

Some analysts differed as to whether President Trump’s tweets were really a negotiating tactic.

“The timing of the threat suggests it is a tactic designed to increase leverage going into final trade negotiations,” UBS said.

But Raymond James wasn’t so sure.

“Based upon our conversations with our trade contacts, there appears to be a universal belief that this is not negotiating leverage, but what was almost a done deal last week, has derailed in recent days,” wrote analyst Ed Mills in a note to clients.

Here’s what strategists say about the U.S. China tariff feud.

Here's what advisors are telling clients worried about Trump's China trade-war tweets

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, December 19, 2018.

It appeared to be a painful start to the week for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbling more than 470 points at the open Monday.

Yet Carolyn McClanahan, a certified financial planner, in Jacksonville, Florida, received no calls from worried clients.

“There’s always something that’s troubling the stock market,” McClanahan said.

The issue this week? Fear of a trade war erupting after Trump said in a Sunday afternoon Twitter post that the current 10% tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods will rise to 25% on Friday. He also threatened to impose 25% levies on an additional $325 billion of Chinese goods “shortly.”

“It’s the least worry our clients have,” said McClanahan, founder of Life Planning Partners. (The Dow has since erased more than half its losses and was down about 200 points by early afternoon).

McClanahan attributes her and her clients calm to their previous discussions about risk.

“How much risk do you need and want to take?” McClanahan said she asks them annually. “We focus on what the client’s life goals are. You can’t control the market.”

Investors who make decisions in response to the president’s volatility should brace for whiplash, said James W. Paulsen, chief investment strategist of The Leuthold Group, an investment research firm in Minneapolis.

“This is a man-made crisis that was created by a Trump trade tweet, and it can be ended by a Trump trade tweet, ” he said.

Concerns over whether someone’s stocks are over- or undervalued are often needless, said Mark Hebner, president of Index Fund Advisors, which manages $3.9 billion.

“With roughly 10 million buyers and sellers every day, the market is setting the fair price all the time so going forward they’re positioned to get the fair return,” Hebner said.

That reality, of course, is why more people are now investing in index funds today rather than picking individual stocks. Recent research from Morningstar found that in 2018 just 38% of active U.S. stock funds fared better than their passive peer funds.

“This trading game doesn’t help investors,” Hebner said. (McClanahan said her firm transitioned to only passive funds in 2009, after the active funds did worse in the financial crisis.)

Advisors should remind any jittery clients that “news is random,” and that “buyers and sellers react to that news so that the new price positions the buyer to get a fair return,” Hebner said.

HBO wants Trump to stop making ‘Game of Thrones’-style tweets

HBO wants Trump to stop making 'Game of Thrones'-style tweets

In a more than 400-page report, Mueller’s team said it did not find evidence that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin. Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein further determined that Mueller’s findings did not warrant an obstruction of justice offense.

As part of his victory lap Thursday morning, Trump tweeted an image using a font style that closely matches the title cards and credits used in HBO’s show.

“NO COLLUSION. NO OBSTRUCTION,” the text of the image reads. “FOR THE HATERS AND THE RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS — GAME OVER.”

HBO, a unit of AT&T, said in a statement that it doesn’t want Trump using the show, which clocked a record-high 17.4 million viewers during its season premiere, to suit his political agenda.

“Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes,” an HBO spokesman said in a statement to CNBC.

Trump has aped the style and slogans of “Game of Thrones” before. He has shared at least two other photos in the past six months that borrow from the slogans and font style of the television series.

In November, Trump promoted his administration’s promised sanctions against Iran by tweeting “SANCTIONS ARE COMING NOVEMBER 5” — a clear reference to the phrase “Winter is coming” popularized by the show.

“We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes,” HBO told CNBC at the time. The network’s official Twitter account later suggested Trump misused its trademark.

In January, Trump’s Instagram account posted a similar photo — this one apparently meant to promote Trump’s long-held campaign promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding HBO’s statement.

Twitter touts a 'healthier' service after it was slow to remove death threats against congresswoman

Twitter claimed it has “made strides in creating a healthier service” on Tuesday following reports about the social media giant’s shortcomings in managing abusive content.

Twitter shared a progress report Tuesday touting a proactive approach to finding abusive content. The company’s release comes after BuzzFeed reported on Monday that the social media giant purposely left up tweets threatening freshman congresswoman Rep. Ilhan Omar’s life so that law enforcement could investigate them. The BuzzFeed report cites a source close to the company, and the company has not specifically acknowledged that it purposely left the tweets up.

Rep. Ilhan has been in the spotlight for comments she made about 9-11 last month, in which she included the phrase “some people did something.” The remark drew attacks from some Republican lawmakers, and last Friday President Trump highlighted the remarks with a video showing them juxtaposed against images of the 2001 terrorist attacks. Omar faced numerous death threats on Twitter as the controversy swelled.

Stopping the spread of abusive content has been an uphill battle for Twitter.

Last month Twitter said it went to great lengths to take down videos from the New Zealand Mosque shooting that kept popping up on its platform.

In its Tuesday post, Twitter offered some statistics to show its progress. Today, it said, 38% of abusive content is found by Twitter first, instead of relying on reports from users. As recently as last year, the company relied exclusively on user reports. Twitter also said that it suspends three times as many abusive accounts within 24 hours of a report, compared to last year.

Twitter vowed to keep improving technology to support these efforts, making reporting easier for users, and experimenting with a “hide replies” function.

Pelosi: Trump's tweets have 'cheapened the presidency'

Donald Trump has been dubbed the “Twitter President” by some for his favorite form of communication. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said his use of the platform has “cheapened the presidency.”

“There’s more of a responsibility for a president to communicate his point of view, which we should respect — he’s the president of the United States. Whether you agree with him or not, he has a point of view,” Pelosi told Recode’s Kara Swisher in a recent podcast interview. “But to use the office of the president as an attack vehicle … for his market, it seems to have worked.”

Pelosi, D-Calif., also took aim at the media for its continuous coverage of his tweets, like last month, when the president tweeted over 50 times in a weekend.

“I think the press is an enabler of him,” she said. “And I think on the other hand, they are the best defense of him. The freedom of the press is the guardian of the gate of our democracy.”

Pelosi said that effort would have been better spent covering other issues like prescription drug prices or U.S. infrastructure.

“Even if they don’t like what you’re saying, if they’re talking about him, they’re not talking about us,” she said.
