There is a fine line between healthy market skepticism and disbelief. Unfortunately, Jim Cramer is seeing such a large amount of incredulous attitude that he's ready to give investors a reality check.
"There is a huge difference between being skeptical, which is constructive, and simply refusing to accept facts that are staring you right in the face, which can be incredibly destructive to your portfolio," said the "Mad Money" host.
Especially when it comes to the insanely awesome numbers announced in the retail and restaurant sectors. Could they be too good to be true? Could Home Depot really post 8 percent sales growth or 11 percent from Domino's Pizza?
Yes. It really happened.
But what really concerns Cramer is that the general reaction he keeps hearing is one of disbelief. That the consumer can't really be doing so well and this has to be unsustainable. That any minute Janet Yellen is going to say something that will wipe it all away.
Cramer calls that mindset "close-minded incredulity."
