Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: I Like Pitney Bowes and Eaton

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, took a look at two stocks that recently reported earnings, Pitney Bowes (PBI) and Eaton Corp. (ETN), an AAP holding.

Cramer noted that Pitney Bowes, though reporting in-line earnings, boosted its full-year guidance. "I like the stock very much," he said. 

As for Eaton, shares are down slightly following a slew of analyst downgrades.  But Cramer is undeterred. Despite the company and its management failing to live up to expectations, he plans to stick with the stock.

"When everyone downgrades a stock, it's closer to a bottom than a top," he concluded.
