Here is a recap of the latest stock market action including the top stock gainers, buy-the-dip candidates, volume leaders and advice from Jim Cramer from Tuesday, Apr. 20.

Top Stock Gainers on Tuesday

  1. Kansas City Southern  (KSU) - Get Report | +15.25% Increase
  2. New Oriental Education  (EDU) - Get Report | +6.46% Increase
  3. Fisker  (FSR) - Get Report | +4.53% Increase

  5. International Business Machines  (IBM) - Get Report | +3.79% Increase

Cramer said if everything goes right Fisker could be the next Tesla but it needs to execute. "It's a very interesting opportunity and I recommend it [Tuesday]," he said.

Buy-the-Dip Candidates

  1. Tripadvisor  (TRIP) - Get Report | -10.39% Decrease Tuesday
  2. United Airlines  (UAL) - Get Report | -8.53% Decrease Tuesday
  3. Virgin Galactic  (SPCE) - Get Report | -6.59% Decrease Tuesday
  4. American Airlines  (AAL) - Get Report | -5.48% Decrease Tuesday
  5. Ford Motor  (F) - Get Report | -5.45% Decrease Tuesday

Cramer said Virgin Galactic was a quizzical sale and he's not sure what to make of it. "She has had a lot of money come in but... there is a lot of questionable thinking there," he added.

Cramer also talked about how he is "not a fan of the airlines" after United Airlines reported its financials. Cramer made an exception for Southwest  (LUV) - Get Report and Boeing  (BA) - Get Report but was slightly concerned that Boeing stock was down Tuesday after its CFO Greg Smith announced he will retire in July. 

Tuesday Price Volume Leaders

  1. Tesla  (TSLA) - Get Report | 25,602,515 Shares Traded
  2. Apple  (AAPL) - Get Report | 12,602,466 Shares Traded
  3. Amazon  (AMZN) - Get Report | 8,746,892 Shares Traded
  4. Netflix  (NFLX) - Get Report | 6,186,839 Shares Traded
  5. Coinbase Global  (COIN) - Get Report | 5,801,132 Shares Traded

Cramer’s missing Apple Watch episode helped him to understand one thing about Apple’s business and its stock. He then offered a warning to traders who try to time entries into Apple shares. Apple Maven covered the Spring-Loaded event Tuesday.

Netflix Inc shares tumbled in pre-market trading Wednesday after the streaming service said COVID disruptions would continue to dampen subscriber growth after a softer-than-expected first-quarter earnings report Tuesday. 

Cramer called Netflix the worst stock of the FANGs and said: "Netflix is a big reset" after its disappointing report.
