Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: Microsoft Is a 'Completely Up' Stock

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Microsoft (MSFT) are lower on Monday, headed into Tuesday's earnings report. 

On CNBC's "Cramer's Stop Trading" segment, TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, called Microsoft a "completely up stock," as it has continued to move higher and higher in recent trading. 

Shares of Microsoft jumped higher following an announcement that it will slash 18,000 employees, as well as on Intel's (INTC) positive earnings results.
