both "stumbled" last month, he said.

But even though Coldwater is down "a cool six points" since last week, it has a history of "swooning" and then coming back up, Cramer said, adding that he believes those who use this as an opportunity to buy the stock should be happy in the long run.

Meanwhile, California Pizza Kitchen "committed the unpardonable sin of guiding down for the quarter and for the year," which market players never want to hear, he said.
