Bristol-Myers (BMY) , ServiceNow (NOW) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) have been major third quarter earnings surprises, but they are not the only one, says TheStreet's Jim Cramer. Bristol-Myers Squibb on Thursday reported an adjusted third-quarter profit of $0.77 a share compared to Wall Street expectations of $0.65 a share. ServiceNow posted better-than-expected results for the 2016 third quarter and gave a positive revenue forecast after Wednesday's closing bell. Kimberly-Clark's Monday earnings miss was a shocker to Cramer. The consumer staples giant posted weak third quarter earnings which missed both top and bottom line estimates.
