Why Jim Cramer Would Buy Twitter (TWTR) Stock If It Drops After Earnings Report

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer says Twitter  (TWTR) is a "battleground stock," much like Tesla  (TSLA), Amazon  (AMZN) and Herbalife (HLF).

Cramer tells investors not to stray on these stocks because they are a bit too dangerous. Twitter could be up $8 or down $8 based on their earnings report after the closing bell Tuesday, and he does not have that kind of risk/reward scenario in his comfort zone.

But if Twitter goes down, Cramer reminds investors of new CFO Anthony Noto and says a strong CFO could do a lot of good for the company. Cramer says he would be interested in buying shares if Twitter gets hit.
