Jim Cramer tackles Oracle, the tariffs, T. Boone Pickens and the markets. 

Let's Talk Tariffs...Again


We have more news about the China-U.S. trade war.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he was pushing back the Oct. 1 tariffs by 15 days.

Cramer focused on the tariffs in his morning column over on Real Money.

Here's a sneak peek into his thoughts on the tariffs:

Despite the president calling his own move a "goodwill gesture" to the Chinese at the behest of Vice Premier Liu He, I don't think it matters much. Nor do I think it is that important that the Chinese this morning are trying to limit negotiations to only trade matters, according to the Wall Street Journal.

In Need of An Oracle?

That might be how some Oracle investors are feeling after receiving a double whammy from Oracle Wednesday night.

The company posted earnings a day early and also announced that co-CEO Mark Hurd was taking a medical leave of absence.

Adjusted earnings in the first quarter were 81 cents a share, in line with forecasts, but revenue of $9.2 billion fell short of forecasts of $9.3 billion.

"Though we all worked hard together to close the first quarter, I've decided that I need to spend time focused on my health," Hurd wrote in a message distributed to Oracle employees. The board granted Hurd his request for a leave of absence, he said in a statement.

Oracle Executive Chairman Larry Ellison said that "Oracle has an extremely capable CEO in Safra Catz and an extraordinarily deep team of executives, many with a long tenure at Oracle. Safra [Catz] and I will cover Mark's responsibilities during his absence."
