Cramer Remix: Is Netflix stock still binge-worthy?

Cramer Remix: Is Netflix binge-worthy?

Jim Cramer spent a lot of time going over charts this weekend, and he was left depressed.

"That's what happens after a prolonged correction like the one we have been having, that's what the bear has done to so many stocks," the "Mad Money " host said.

In this roller-coaster market, is there any hope for investors who want to dip their toe into investing right now?

Netflix stock soared in after-hours trading on Tuesday after reporting an impressive membership number. However, Cramer warned against purchasing the stock right now given the volatile backdrop of the market.

Cramer said that the only methodical way to make an informed and calculated risk with stocks right now is with dividends, also known as yield protection. Often, investors will stocks with higher yields to be a good bet in times of downturn because regardless of how the stock performs, the yield will provide a recurring rate of investment return.

"A solid yield would help you preserve capital on the downside while allowing you to catch any rally that might finally come your way," Cramer said. (Tweet This)

After the vicious sell-off last week, Cramer wanted to know how much more pain the has to endure before it finally bottoms. And what he discovered could be significant.

To answer this important question, he enlisted the help of Carolyn Boroden, a technician who runs and a colleague of Cramer's at

Boroden utilizes a mathematical methodology based on the medieval mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci. He discovered that a key series of ratios tend to repeat themselves over and over again in nature.

Given the recent volatility, Boroden believes that this market is vulnerable to the downside. Looking at the S&P 500's weekly chart, she did not like what she saw.

Boroden noticed the Fibonacci timing cycles suggest that this could trigger a healthy bounce, and it could happen sometime this week.

However, if the S&P 500 breaks down below the floor of support in the 1,830s, then Boroden believes a brutal sell-off could happen. It could even be similar to the magnitude of what happened in the financial crisis.

"I personally don't believe that this kind of a decline is in the cards, but you need to be aware that right now the charts are saying some very ugly things, and I think it accentuated the caution I've been trying to demonstrate," Cramer said.

Last year was not only a significant year for the S&P, but it also brought a slew of gigantic merger announcements: Allergan and Pfizer; Dow and DuPont; and Ace and Chubb.

There were a few cases that Cramer saw were so huge that they basically established an oligopoly within a particular industry. Meaning, there are only a handful of companies that control an entire industry and coexist peacefully without much price competition.

So, in a vicious market, Cramer found that the oligopolies in the beer and beverage space could have great upside. That is why he thinks Molson Coors and Ball Corp should be on an investors shopping list in the next sell-off.

In his long career of investing, Cramer has learned that while he is sometimes wrong, the market can also sometimes be dead wrong about stocks.

"Sometimes, you simply have to be patient. Other times, you have to wait. Still other times, you are just plain wrong and you have to own that wrong view," the "Mad Money " host said.

Bank of America reported earnings on Tuesday, and Cramer thought it was a very good quarter. It showed excellent loan growth, good expense control and strong interest income.

Yet when Bank of America reported, the stock quickly went up and before being taken to the woodshed. This was partially due to its energy exposure and also because investors felt expenses weren't cut enough. Cramer was shocked at the decline of the stock considering that the shares are so far behind all of the other major bank stocks.

"I think the market is wrong, and the stock will rally. That is why I have been buying Bank of America for my charitable trust," Cramer said.(Tweet This)

Cramer also took the time to get a reality check from a Daymond John, an entrepreneur, panelist on "Shark Tank" and founder of popular clothing company FUBU.

John recently also released a book entitled "The Power of Broke: How Empty pockets, a Tight Budget and a Hunger for Success Can Become Your Greatest Competitive Advantage." In a world where mindshare matters more than ever in an industry, Cramer considers John to be the king of branding.

John commented on the impact that not having a lot of money can have on one's mindset, stating, "That's when you use all of your resources. You have to focus on something because you don't have a lot of options. That is when you make affordable mistakes, but you fail forward fast or you fail forward and win."

In the Lightning Round, Cramer gave his take on a few caller-favorite stocks:

Phillips 66: "I don't like the margins anymore on some of these businesses. You want to be careful — it is not my favorite name."

Exelixis: "I like the risk-reward on that one. Now for a $4 stock remember you can lose $4 and people aren't speculating right now, but I like that pipeline very much."
