Jim Cramer: Don't Bet Against Comebacks 

Just like you have to know how to read a room, you have to know how to read a tape, and this tape screams "I'm not done yet," writes Jim Cramer. If stocks could talk, Cramer explains, you might actually hear them say something like that, because, as he says, we are in one of the greatest second chance markets he's ever seen.
