Cramer’s week ahead: Markets will do ‘much better’ during the next four weeks
CNBC’s Jim Cramer told investors on Friday that after a turbulent week of trading, he believes stocks will perform better going forward.
“You’ve got to adjust your mindset to a world where the bears are finally in retreat, because I’m betting the next four weeks will be much better than what we’ve come to be used to,” he said.

Stocks rose on Friday but ended the week down after digesting a slew of corporate earnings, economic data reports and speeches from Federal Reserve officials. The major indexes are still up for the month.
Cramer attributed the market’s resiliency to both exhausted sellers and animal spirits — the tendency for stocks to move based on investor sentiment. “They keep giving us a boost, as we’re further along in the process of making a bottom,” he said.
He also previewed next week’s slate of earnings. All earnings and revenue estimates are courtesy of FactSet.
