The macro factors that could save stocks, he said, would be a fresh trade deal between the U.S. and China, which some anticipate could come this week when President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping cross paths at the G-20 summit, or a pause in the Fed's interest rate hike schedule.

Gym operator Planet Fitness' burgeoning equipment retail business stems from its commitment to staying on the cutting edge of active-lifestyle offerings, CEO Chris Rondeau told Cramer in an exclusive interview on Monday.
"We never want to be out-newed," said Rondeau, whose national company now boasts 12.2 million members. Nearly 45-percent of Planet Fitness' client base are millennials, he added.
Aside from the money Planet Fitness makes on its affordable, $10-a-month membership fees, the company has now taken to selling equipment that gets left behind during its "re-equips," or times when franchisees are required to upgrade older equipment, Rondeau said.
"Unfortunately, this industry, a lot of it's been lacking [capital expenditures]. You go to a 10-year-old club, it's 10 years old," the CEO told Cramer. "We require our franchisees to re-equip their stores every five [to] seven years so everything's new."

: "We don't care where a stock came from, we care where it's going. I agree with you [on the] long term [prospects]. Short term, you're going to have tariff issues, you've got the president … in the White House saying all sorts of negative things, so just understand he and the Fed both are fighting it. OK? They don't want you to make money here. But the company itself is trying to make you money."
