Even though polls for the election currently favor a victory for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, Cramer has seen the polls wrong before. That is why he prepared investors for what to expect in the event that Donald Trump wins the presidential race.
The one stance that stood out to Cramer from Trump's platform was his stance on Mexico. If he wins, Trump plans to build a wall along the border and attempt to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Cracking down on Mexican exports would likely boost American manufacturing jobs, but it could also make products more expensive for U.S. consumers.
This means a company like Cemex — a Mexican company that is one of the world's largest manufacturers of cement and concrete — could be hurt substantially under a Trump presidency.
Another stock that could be impacted negatively by a Trump regime is Kansas City Southern, the main railroad that connects Mexico to the U.S. A large wall could hinder the very transportation routes that Kansas City Southern relies on.
As stocks bounced back on Monday, Cramer watched asinvestors crowded back into the trusted FANG stocks. FANG stands for Cramer's acronym for the growth stocks leading the market: Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google, now Alphabet.
"In my 35 years of picking stocks, I have always found this phenomenon to be the case: the favorite growth stocks stay favorites until they stop growing," Cramer said.
Two of the four FANG names issued guidance that investors found disappointing when they reported. One surprised Wall Street with decent earnings and OK revenue growth, but no forecast boost. The final name simply did what was expected.
Yet, all four were the first stocks investors reached for on Monday.
