Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: At RetailMeNot, Google Runs the Show

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of RetailMeNot (SALE) are plunging in Tuesday's trading session, down about 25%. 

On CNBC's "Cramer's Stop Trading" segment, TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, said the company was not prepared for Google's (GOOG) (GOOGL) algorithm change, despite reassurances from the CEO. 

The change negatively affected RetailMeNot's business -- and shareholders are not happy about the result. 

Google is in charge, Cramer said, and he doesn't like RetailMeNot, or any other company for that matter, that is completely at the mercy of other big companies.

At the time of publication, Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS held a position in GOOGL.
