Investors should own Apple's stock rather than sell, CNBC's JIm Cramer said Wednesday, a day after the tech giant posted record quarterly profits in part because of its strong performance in China.
"This is a mesmerizing quarter," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street. " "This was a fabulous China quarter. They seem to like the iPhones different from what Steve Jobs said they would; they seem to like the big phones."
On Tuesday, the company obliterated Wall Street's fourth-quarter expectations by posting earnings per share of $3.06 on about $75 billion revenue, both records. The Street expected Apple to post earnings per share of $2.60 per share on $67.69 billion in revenue, according to a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters. The company's $18 billion quarterly profit was a record for any publicly traded company.
The company's stock rose more than 8 percent Wednesday morning. (Click here for the latest price.)
The company's expansion in China can also help it keep its momentum, Cramer said. "The China thing amazed me when I saw how few stores they have," he said. "They could probably use 1,000 stores in China. The online business is [also] incredible in China. "
