Hang in there, Wall Street. Friday is almost here. 

This morning the markets reacted to, and in some cases were challenged by, earnings from Facebook (FB) , Microsoft (MSFT) , Tesla (TSLA) , 3M (MMM) , Comcast (CMCSA) , Southwest (LUV) and more. 

Jim Cramer and ActionAlertsPlus.com research analyst Zev Fima are back to break down what it all means for your portfolio and what investors need to do next.

Time to Like Facebook? 

Wednesday night, Facebook surged on a strong set of first quarter earnings. The social media giant reported earnings per share of 85 cents on revenues of $15.08 billion.   

 Almost as a footnote, Facebook also said it has set aside $3 billion as part of ongoing legal proceedings with the FTC, which impacted earnings. Despite the potential size of the fine, expected anywhere between $3 and $5 billion, Cramer doesn't seem worried.

Can Tesla Return to Profitability? 

During its much-delayed and always Tweet-worthy earnings report, Tesla reported quarterly revenue of $4.54 billion and an adjusted loss of $2.90. Analysts polled by FactSet expected revenue of $5.42 billion and an adjusted loss of $1.15 per share.

Responding to analyst questioning during its earnings conference call, Tesla attributed the wider-than-expected-loss to changes in production and noted that the automaker plans to return to profitability in the third quarter of 2019. 

Cramer isn't so confident that Tesla will deliver for investors, describing CEO Elon Musk as the "master deflector," and saying that Musk does whatever he can to throw analysts off during conference calls. "He is P.T. Barnum," Cramer said.
