Jim Cramer has always considered teen retailers to be the most puzzling, confusing and downright frustrating segment of retail.
Hence, he was very suspicious when this group that has been down in the dumps for ages suddenly bounced back after the election of Donald Trump.
"Historically, I have not liked the teen apparel plays. I think teenagers are incredibly fickle customers, and even worse, it's almost a truism that adults don't understand teens, even the adults who run these teen oriented apparel companies or the adults who analyze their stocks," the "Mad Money" host said.
When an investor buys shares in a teen retailer, it's a bet on what teenagers like, and that is something that can change on a dime.
To gain further insight to the group, Cramer spoke with technician Bob Lang, the founder of ExplosiveOptions.net and colleague at RealMoney.com. Lang said teen stocks like Zumiez, Tilly's, Francesca's and Five Below have been making some fantastic moves lately.
He even managed to enroll Cramer in believing in Five Below based on the fundamentals.
