Morning Bell With Jim Cramer: Buy AMD Stock

Jim Cramer talks stock market news, including Intel's chip update and why price hikes are important in picking stocks.

Stocks traded slightly higher Friday as investors grappled with the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 delta variant, the impact of the virus on growth, and China's continued crackdown on its tech sector.

In the most recent "Mad Money" program on CNBC, TheStreet Founder Jim Cramer said higher prices may be tough on consumers, but strong companies that can raise prices are good for investors' portfolios.

Cramer and TheStreet Senior Portfolio Analyst Jeff Marks are talking about Intel's chip update. 

Cramer Picks Stocks With Pricing Power

Last night on "Mad Money," Jim Cramer said stocks with high pricing power include Apple  (AAPL) - Get Free Report, Microsoft  (MSFT) - Get Free Report, Netflix  (NFLX) - Get Free Report, Amazon  (AMZN) - Get Free Report and Costco  (COST) - Get Free Report.

Cramer told viewers that price hikes are a great factor in picking stocks. "[If] a company can raise prices and no one cares, that's a stock you want in your portfolio," he said.

Intel and AMD: Buy Or Sell?

Intel  (INTC) - Get Free Report on Thursday unveiled new architectures for two x86 central-processing-unit cores, two data center SoCs, two discrete graphics-processing units and a multicore performance hybrid architecture for clients.
