Jim Cramer's Stocks to Watch After 2020 Election

Jim Cramer discusses the stocks moving markets and where the market stands with the election.

It's Nov. 5. 

There still isn't a winner of the presidential election. According to the Associated Press, former Vice President Joe Biden has 264 electoral college votes and President Donald Trump has 214 votes. 

And, at the market close Thursday, the Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq were all up over 1%, with the Nasdaq closing up over 2%. 

"This is one the most amazing rallies I've ever seen," Jim Cramer said. "There is a lot of liquidity and a lot of belief that whatever is in the stock market is a store hold of value."

So where does one find the winners in such a broad move higher? 

Cramer said he is focused on the stocks that are winners in a lockdown and continued pandemic environment: Etsy  (ETSY) - Get Etsy, Inc. Report, Shopify  (SHOP) - Get Shopify, Inc. Class A Report, Nvidia  (NVDA) - Get NVIDIA Corporation Report, Papa John's  (PZZA) - Get Papa John's International, Inc. Report.

"It's almost like we created a group of stocks that are doing well in the pandemic in they're the S&P 500," Cramer said. 

Jim Cramer talks the above, the election, Skyworks  (SWKS) - Get Skyworks Solutions, Inc. Report, Apple  (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. Report, Linde  (LIN) - Get Linde plc Report, Bristol Myers Squibb  (BMY) - Get Bristol-Myers Squibb Company Report, Qualcomm  (QCOM) - Get Qualcomm Inc Report and more:  

We are still waiting to hear from key states such as Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania, all of which would need to turn for President Donald Trump to give him any chance of reaching the 270 Electoral Vote threshold.

Trump's campaign team has filed suits in Pennsylvania and Georgia to stop counting certain votes and is also seeking a recount in Wisconsin, a state projected for Biden yesterday, but investors have largely ignored post-election disputes on the assumption of a firm and decisive mandate for the former Vice President in the coming days.

But all of this being up in the air doesn't seem to faze the markets, which closed firmly in the green Wednesday and continued higher Thursday.
