Jim wants to make a bet - that people will lose money if they
on earnings alone, a function of not understanding the
The key is to understanding the business ncycle.
Cramer thinks we are at the peak of the cycle and heading down now.
CVS Corporation CVS and Walgreen Company WAG stock went down even though both met expectations and reported good numbers.
When the Fed tightened up on May 11, both of their stocks went back up.
"These stocks just don't work when the market is steamrolling," he said.
Cramer thinks that Walgreen's stock is not done going up.

and it is coming down. Sector-wise, it will be treated like
American mining co, and that is not good.

When a stock like this goes up, sell a little.
"Apple is turning into apple sauce and I can't have that happen to you," Jim said.
