Jim Cramer: Pricing in an Impasse?

That's why things seem so sanguine. They really aren't! If we actually do get the House to agree with the Senate -- I see no reason why that should happen until after the deadline -- then maybe we will have such a tidal wave of buying that it will leave no stock behind, until, at least, we start talking taper again.

So, I believe after the furious runs of October 2011 and January 2013 (fiscal cliff) many participants are willing to risk what I think could be a 1,000-point Dow decline if nothing's done this week, if only because come next week, there will be a resolution. If it is before then, many stocks that report good quarters will be off to the races and stocks such as Wells Fargo (WFC - Get Report), which reported a not-so-hot quarter, won't get hit as badly as they should otherwise.

Random Musings: The hiring of Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts is very important for Apple (AAPL - Get Report) because she is very pro-customer-relations management and is a huge backer of's (CRM - Get Report) methods of staying close to retail customers.

Action Alerts PLUS, which Cramer co-manages as a charitable trust, is long WFC and AAPL.
