Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: Netflix Wins With Investors Ahead of the Emmys


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Netflix (NFLX - Get Report) is trading higher Monday, and Jim Cramer thinks that's in anticipation of the company's programming winning big during tonight's Emmy Awards. 

On CNBC's "Cramer's Mad Dash" segment, co-host Carl Quintanilla told Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, that Netflix' subscription-only programs were nominated for over 30 Emmy Awards.

It might not make sense to many, Cramer said, but Netflix gets a boost from awards shows because a win gives it another selling point for luring in new subscribers. Cramer thinks international subscriptions should continue to grow and thinks another company should have bought Netflix a long time ago.

Even LyondellBasell Industries (LYB) is expanding its plastics operation in the Gulf of Mexico region, Cramer noted.
