TheStreet's Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer breaks down the day's trending stocks on our daily Facebook Live show, which airs weekdays at 10 a.m. EST.

Last week, a host of major earnings reports were overshadowed by a selloff in the broader markets on Wednesday amid turmoil in the Trump White House. The declines were sparked in part by a report from The New York Times saying President Donald Trump asked FBI Director James Comey to end the investigation into Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 373 points on Wednesday.

The markets rebounded on Thursday and Friday as investors refocused on earnings, a traditional driver of stock markets. 

TheStreet breaks down 10 things we learned from this week's shows with Jim Cramer.
