Estee Lauder: Buy Or Sell?

Estee Lauder  (EL) - Get Report shares rose to a record high Monday as two analysts raised their ratings on the beauty products company following its strong quarterly earnings report.

Cramer said Estee Lauder is a buy because it makes a ton of money on Mac and the skincare business does good margins for the company. "The Zoom generation needs a lot of makeup and a lot of skincare. There is a pent-up demand for makeup because of Zoom and the selfie generation which is back in China. Maybe this stock will never get cheap."

Tesla: Buy Or Sell?

Shares of Tesla  (TSLA) - Get Report rose after the electric-vehicle company said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it had purchased $1.5 billion of the Bitcoin.

Cramer said companies should always do more with their cash than keep it in the short term [deposits]. "Tesla is using crypto as the correct currency if they're going to be trading in currency, buying cars in currency. They better show the faith that they believe in the currency as part of cash equivalents," he said.

Markets on Monday

Cramer said we're having a worldwide rally. "Japan is up 2%, Europe is up. Oil is up, that's a sign of the health of the economy. So, there is no reason for the market to go down necessarily. This is an opportunity," he said.
