NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- "In all the years that I've been following the employment numbers, I've never seen a range [of estimates] this wide," TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, said Thursday.

Cramer said he's got "smart people" telling him the February nonfarm payrolls report on Friday will come in at 50,000 jobs, while other "smart people" are telling him it will be 350,000 jobs. 

It's unusual for the range to be this wide. However, anything in the middle will probably be viewed as "ho-hum" by investors, who will be happy to finally have this unpredictable data point out of the way, Cramer said.

Many people are suspicious of the stock market because it continues to make new highs while economic data are starting to look a little less optimistic. However, as long as the 10-year Treasury yield stays below 3%, the rally in equities should continue, he said.
