Jim Cramer's got some thoughts on the market.
What the Tariffs Mean for the Markets
Should investors be worried about the EU tariffs? The World Trade Organization ruled that Washington could counter illegal subsidies to plane-maker Airbus (EADSY) with tariffs on $7.5 billion worth of goods including airplanes made by Boeing's (BA - Get Report) main rival, French wine, British whiskey and Italian cheese.
Jim Cramer weighed in on them in his Real Money column Thursday morning.
"Yesterday, in the midst of one of the worst selloffs we had in ages, there was a moment where I believe that market participants thought that the president might actually take the WTO judgment against Europe and do nothing with it except negotiate. After all, the ruling, against Airbus dumping, was 15 years in the making," wrote Cramer.
So, why didn't the market react to the news?
Let's talk Pepsi.
PepsiCo reported core earnings for the three months ending on September 7, the company's fiscal third quarter, came in at $1.56 per share, which is 5 cents ahead of the Street consensus forecast. According to the company, group revenues rose 4.2% to $17.188 billion, topping analysts' forecasts of $16.93 billion.
Looking into 2019, PepsiCo said it could "meet or exceed" its 4% growth target for organic sales, but noted that its full-year core earnings forecast of $5.50 per share remains unchanged, a figure just below the Refinitv estimate of $5.52 per share.
