Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: Visa and Mastercard Are Buys Now

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, said on CNBC's "Cramer's Stop Trading" segment that fears over the Russian economy were exaggerated.

A Pacific Crest report suggests the same thing, he added. 

Stocks like Visa (V) and Mastercard (MA) "should be up much more right now," he reasoned. 

Both stocks were knocked lower following what would usually be considered good earnings reports. However, fears over Russian exposure kept investors out of the stocks. 

The actual business for Visa and Mastercard was "really fabulous" in the previous earnings reports, Cramer concluded, adding that both stocks are "ripe to buy and will go much higher."
