There are two markets, according to TheStreet's founder and Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer:
- companies that are dealing with rising raw costs (Whirlpool (WHR) , Kimberly Clark (KMB) )
- companies that don't have raw costs (Facebook (FB) , Amazon (AMZN) )
According to Cramer, the companies that don't have raw costs issues are doing well, unlike the companies that are grappling with raw costs.
Facebook and Amazon are holdings of Cramer's charitable trust Action Alerts PLUS.
