Jim Cramer says investors need to focus on more than just earnings and take a more holistic approach to analyzing stocks. As an example he take a look at American Express (AXP - Get Report) . Investors of the financial services company should focus on the dividend and the possible stock buy backs and not just on the earnings per share.
