Cramer's Stop Trading!: Apple, Citi, Google - TheStreet

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- On his Thursday Stop Trading! segment on CNBC, Jim Cramer said he doesn't think the work on financial regulatory reform can be completed before the G20 conference.

Furthermore, bank stocks can't rally until these decisions are made, Cramer lamented. "The group is stalled ... they are an underperforming group right now ...
