NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer says the two factors he is most worried about headed into the weekend are whether the cyclicals can keep rallying and whether retail will decline.
The Consumer Confidence Index rose to 82.3 in March, its best number since Jan. 2008, just at the beginning of the recession. Cramer notes this number was terrific and points out that Restoration Hardware (RH) and Finish Line (FINL) have recovered nicely with quarterly results that exceeded expectations. He adds it's possible that retail can be saved from "a vicious head-and-shoulders pattern."
As for cyclical stocks, Cramer notes that China could announce its new stimulus plans on Sunday night. If that happens, then the rally would continue.
Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates FINISH LINE INC as a "buy" with a ratings score of B. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:
"We rate FINISH LINE INC (FINL) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, increase in net income and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity."
Highlights from the analysis by TheStreet Ratings Team goes as follows:
