Cramer: Keep an Eye on Europe

Stocks in this article: PVH FXE UDN UUP


NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Debra Borchardt: The ECB left rates unchanged. Pretty much what we expected. So Jim, are we starting to think that things are maybe stabilizing over in Europe? Last week it was all about Spain and Italy and things were getting worse again.

Jim Cramer: I don't think things are stabilizing. I think things are still bad. Now, we see some countries doing better. Scandinavia is doing better. The UK is doing better. Germany is doing better. This is a callout from Ralph Lauren (RL). They did that last night. We've also seen it from PVH (PVH - Get Report). We've seen it from a number of companies talking about Europe not going down anymore, but Europe is still weak if you look at car sales, Europe is still weak when you look at Spanish banks.

Debra Borchardt: We were just talking about News Corp (NWSA) and Italy.

Jim Cramer: There is enough anecdotal that there is no reason why they don't take the rates down. It would shock the system. It would lower the currency. They want the currency lowered. You have this inconsistent Draghi comment saying, "Look, things can get bad, we want the currency lower." If you want the currency lower cut the rates. Get things better. Do what Bernanke did. His inconsistency is spilling over into our markets. Our markets were looking pretty good today until Draghi said there's a lot of risk here.

I was listening to Bob Rubin this morning, my old boss, and he used to be at Citi (C). You may have plus or minus views on Rubin, but he did say that he thinks that we've gotten too complacent about Europe.

Debra Borchardt: It's been going on for years.

Jim Cramer: I know. Tell me about it.

Debra Borchardt: They've had meetings about meetings and more meetings.

Jim Cramer: So far this year it hasn't affected us, but maybe now it will. I was going back and forth with my colleague who writes for us, Matt Horween this morning. He said, "Listen, don't be complacent about Europe."
