Historically, October has been an important month to the downside for the stock market. It was the month that kicked off the Great Depression in 1929 and Black Monday in 1987. But Jim Cramer wants investors to remember that it can be a bullish month, with this month as the best so far in 2015, even if Friday ended on a sour note.
"One thing is for certain, with the Fed on hold, earnings were once again able to drive stock prices. I know that sounds obvious, but until this earnings season came around, the performance of individual stocks were pretty much in thrall to the S&P futures," the "Mad Money" host said.
So with one more week of high profile earnings ahead, Cramer went down the list of stocks and events he will be watching.
Monday: Visa, Estee Lauder, ISM Manufacturing, FitBit
Visa: Cramer considers this company to be a machine. A fantastic earner that never misses and not enough of its good qualities are reflected in its stock. Based on some of the strange buying opportunities that market has created lately, like the moronic selling of Starbucks, Cramer is hoping for a buying opportunity on earnings.
ISM Manufacturing: Cramer will be watching for this number because industrial America has taken a bad hit lately. Is manufacturing going into recession? The numbers will tell him.
