The S&P 500 has never increased this much in the first four months of the year without a three-day pullback, and CNBC's Jim Cramer sees that as proof that this market is for real.
"It's a bull market," he said on "Squawk on the Street" on Tuesday. "That's the kind of statistic" that demonstrates it.
Cramer urged investors to look at the companies that missed street expectations: Apple, Exxon, IBM, Amazon, 3M, AT&T, Procter & Gamble, Intel, Qualcomm, General Electric, United Technologies, United Health, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Caterpillar, McDonald's, Starbucks and Pfizer.
"Those all disappointed, and we're at all-time highs! Isn't this what the S&P is?" Cramer asked. "It says that things must be getting better. The second half must be getting better."
