Facebook may have topped even the most optimistic of Wall Street expectations for its fourth-quarter revenue and earnings, but the social media giant is in a unique position, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Thursday.
The company reported that it earned 79 cents per share on $5.84 billion in revenue in the quarter. The highest estimates on the Street had called for earnings of 75 cents and revenue of $5.67 billion, according to data from Thomson Reuters.
Looking at the global macroeconomic environment — which has recently given many companies trouble — Facebook's CFO, David Wehner, said on the company's earnings call that Facebook did not see anything in its fourth quarter that indicated "broad-based macro weakness" beyond currency effects.
Based on this statement, Cramer noted that he would rather not have the Federal Reserve take Wehner's comments into consideration, fearing they could prompt a potential rate hike in the near future.
"I want the Fed not to listen to [Facebook's] call," Cramer said on Squawk on the Street.
