Apple Event Preview: What Jim Cramer Wants in iPhone 12

“We want 5G and we want it now,” Jim Cramer said in a recent interview with TheStreet. 

Apple  (AAPL) – Get Report is at last expected to reveal its 5G iPhones in a live virtual event  at 1 P.M. ET Thursday. Analysts across Wall Street expect four new iPhones to be unveiled. 

The move is expected to be one of Apple’s most important product redesigns since the iPhone 6 in 2014, according to Wedbush analyst Dan Ives.

“Importantly, with our estimation that 350 million of 950 million iPhones worldwide are currently in the window of an upgrade opportunity, we believe this will translate into an unprecedented upgrade cycle for [Chief Executive Tim] Cook & Co.,” Ives said.

 While Cramer is simply excited for a 5G iPhone, he noted that the reveal needs to be different from other 5G phones that have already been released. “The problem here is

Big Tech stocks are buys on any negative antitrust news, Jim Cramer says

Big Tech stocks barely flinched one day after members of Congress recommended parts of their underlying companies be broken up, but investors should be ready to buy if the stocks dip in the future, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday.

“The time these Big Tech stocks get hit by some bad headlines from the House Judiciary Committee is the time you have to buy them,” the “Mad Money” host said. “Regardless of who wins the White House next month, they’re not gonna roll back 40 years of antitrust.”

The comments come on the heels of a Democratic congressional staff report out Tuesday that called for updates to the nation’s antitrust laws and to shake up operations of the largest U.S. technology corporations. The report charges Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet subsidiary Google with having monopoly power.

Facebook was the only one of the three stocks to fall in Wednesday’s session, slipping

Jim Cramer Calls Google a ‘Strange Animal’

Google is rebranding G-Suite to Google Workplace. 

“For more than a decade, we’ve been building products to help people transform the way they work,” Google wrote in a blog post on Google Cloud. “Now, work itself is transforming in unprecedented ways. For many of us, work is no longer a physical place we go to, and interactions that used to take place in person are being rapidly digitized. Office workers no longer have impromptu discussions at the coffee machine or while walking to meetings together, and instead have turned their homes into workspaces. Frontline workers, from builders on a construction site to delivery specialists keeping critical supply chains moving, are turning to their phones to help get their jobs done. While doctors treating patients and local government agencies engaging with their communities are accelerating how they can use technology to deliver their services.”

The company explained that its new Google

Jim Cramer: Fly Ahead of the Pack on Boeing

Thought I would never say this. But I am going to blurt it out: It’s time to buy the stock of Boeing (BA) .

I know, that seems like taking your life in your hands. But I have been waiting for the head of the Federal Aviation Administration to fly on the 737 MAX and Wednesday he did, and the test looks like a good one. That might set in a chain reaction to get this jet sold.

Goldman Sachs recently put out an excellent piece talking about how the MAX recertification “could be a key catalyst.” It thinks that this test and others from Canada and Europe, which I think will fall in line, are going to be milestones that could lead to a year-end recertification.

There is, indeed, broad skepticism about everything I just said. People want to wait and see. I don’t think you can do that
