Ready to kick off this week?

Jim Cramer discussed some of the top headlines in the news Monday, March 4. 

Salesforce Reports After the Bell

Real Money's Stock of the Day Salesforce (CRM) - Get Report is expected to kick off earnings this week when it reports after the bell Monday, March 4.

Analysts surveyed by FactSet expect Salesforce, the cloud software company, to earn 55 cents a share in the fourth quarter on sales of $3.56 billion.

Here's what Cramer expects from Salesforce when the earnings are released.

The Trade Talks Continue

Over the weekend, there were headlines about the possibility of a trade agreement between the U.S. and China.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the potential for a deal, which could come as soon as this month, with other media outlets adding details on the kinds of agreements proposed and the nature of the breakthrough between Washington and Beijing. At the center of any potential agreement, however, appears to be a pledge from both China and the United States to roll back tariffs currently imposed on $350 billion worth of goods, with Beijing vowing deeper structural reforms alongside larger farm and energy purchases, TheStreet's Martin Baccardax reported.

Should investors be surprised when the headlines don't impact headlines? Here's what Cramer thinks.
