Jim Cramer and ActionAlertsPlus.com investing club analyst Zev Fima are back to help you navigate what could come next.
Boeing Grounds Its Earnings Guidance
Does Boeing face more turbulence ahead? The Real Money Stock of the Day reported core non-GAAP earnings for the three months ending in March came in at $3.16 per share, and group revenues came in at $22.9 billion.
The aerospace company also reported it will pause its buyback program and will pull its 2019 guidance due to the suspension of the 737 Max.
Cramer said the fact that Boeing was up at the time of publication is testament to the fact that investors believe Boeing will get it right in the end. At the end of the day, it's all about safety, Cramer said. "The longer they take, the more confident we will be about their safety," Cramer said.

Let the Anadarko Bidding War Begin?
Occidental Petroleum (OXY - Get Report) announced a $76 cash and share offer for Anadarko Petroleum (APC) . The offer marks a 20 percent premium from the deal previously offered by Chevron (CVX - Get Report) . Chevron said earlier this month that it plans to buy Anadarko for $33 billion in cash and stock, offering investors $65 a share.
Cramer said Anadarko became a target for acquisition because in the oil space, it stood out for its lack of strong management. While Cramer admits to mistakenly getting into Anadarko too early, he said the current rise in shares is testament to the importance of patience.
What to Watch After the Bell
The key metric from Facebook? New advertisers. "I think they lost no advertisers and actually picked up advertisers in this period they've been savaged," Cramer said.
