Did you miss last night's "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are Jim Cramer's top takeaways for next week's trading.
Apple (AAPL) : What does a Trump administration mean for Apple, the Action Alerts PLUS holding that Cramer has repeatedly urged investors to just own for the long haul? Turns out, there are both positives and negatives.
On the negative side, Trump wants to get tough on China, where not only are Apple's product made, but also where it sells 20% of them. Clearly, a 45% tariff on Chinese goods or an all-out trade war would be bad news for Apple.
Trump has also been critical of skilled-worker visas, something that Silicon Valley depends heavily on. Finally, there's that matter of Trump suggesting a boycott of Apple products until they gave the FBI a backdoor security access into their phones.
But there are also positives to a Trump win: mainly a lower corporate tax rate and a possible overseas tax holiday that would let Apple repatriate most of its $237 billion cash hoard.
Adding them all up, Cramer said he sees the positives being a lot more likely than the negatives, which is why he continues to be bullish on Apple.
