U.S.-based technology companies with business in China automatically lost value on news of the , who has been accused of violating U.S. sanctions, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Thursday.
The arrest, which occurred in Canada on Saturday and was announced Wednesday, "means any tech company that does a huge amount of business in China, including Apple or or Intel or or Qualcomm or Broadcom, is worth a little less today than it was yesterday, " Cramer, host of "Mad Money," told investors.
But there's one stock that could benefit if the arrest somehow forces Chinese officials to the table and leads them to roll back tariffs on U.S. goods, he said.
"Tesla is a winner if China is serious about lowering trade barriers, but I don't think they're serious about anything, " Cramer told a caller. "And if you really like Tesla, then I've got to tell you, you have to like the car and the stock. It is a cult stock. I'm not there. I like cloud kings that trade at big valuations. I like Amazon — big valuation. But I'm not a Tesla guy. "

A key U.S. construction facilitator is hopeful that President Donald Trump will still make good on his campaign promise of putting more federal dollars towards .
Bill Sandbrook, the chairman, president and CEO of mass concrete and aggregates producer U.S. Concrete, told CNBC that the 2018 midterm elections gave him "optimism" that a major infrastructure bill could get passed in the near future.

"Where people actually get to vote for higher taxes, if they have a direct line of sight to the use for improved infrastructure, they support that," Sandbrook told Cramer. "[That] still gives me optimism that the next Congress may be even a little bit more friendly to spending money, with a Democratic House, [and] that we will have something in the next two years."
