Jim Cramer weighs in on Lyft's lock-up, Trump and China and his Real Money column.
President Trump and China
President Donald Trump was tweeting about China over the weekend.
Trump tweeted about China, saying that things were going well.
We are doing very well with China, and talking!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 18, 2019
But Trump didn't stop there.
Our economy is the best in the world, by far. Lowest unemployment ever within almost all categories. Poised for big growth after trade deals are completed. Import prices down, China eating Tariffs. Helping targeted Farmers from big Tariff money coming in. Great future for USA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 18, 2019
So, are these newest tweets a sign of change, or is this just the same old, same old?
How's Retail Looking?
So, how is retail?
Cramer wrote about retail in his Real Money column Monday morning.
"I have spent a lot of time talking about WATCH, although I still don't think people realize what's so important about it. WATCH, which represents Walmart (WMT - Get Report) , Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) , Target (TGT - Get Report) , Costco (COST) and Home Depot HD, isn't just about the notion of convenience and value, online and offline," wrote Cramer.
Lyft's Lock-Up Expires
Lyft's lock-up period expires Monday.
The company announced last week that it was ending its lock-up period early.
"We and the underwriters may release certain stockholders from the market standoff agreements or lock-up agreements prior to the end of the lock-up period," the company stated in a regulatory filing dated Aug. 13.
For shareholders of Lyft, what does the end of the lock-up mean for the stock?
