Bear Market Territory

Cramer warns that we're in a bear market. Why? Because despite the good news coming out, meaning companies announcing earnings that topped estimates, the markets are still flopping.

In his Daily Rundown video for Action Alerts Plus members, Cramer breaks down the psychology behind bear markets and shares how he approaches a bear market. 

He also lists some stocks and a whole sector that nervous investors can be looking at while the market stays in a bearish pattern. 

For more advice, Cramer went in-depth about the bear market on Real Money.

Retail as a Sector

How do you feel about retail?

Cramer says that he likes the sector, but doesn't feel so positively about the stocks.

He believes that consumers have "liquefied balance sheets."

Cramer also gives an outlook for the holiday season.

And don't forget that Walmart (WMT) - Get Report released earnings that beat expectations on Thursday morning. 

Opinion on Flex?
