The 12 gifts Jim Cramer wants the stock market to deliver in 2020

With Christmas and Hanukkah nigh, CNBC's Jim Cramer on Friday outlined a wish list that he hopes the market will deliver investors in the new year.

Six more trading days remain in 2019, and the "Mad Money" host deemed it a "fantastic year," in which the Dow Jones Industrial Average has climbed almost 22%, the S&P 500 has expanded 28.50% and the Nasdaq Composite has rallied 34.51%.

He expects more to come.

"That's why I'm going to give you the list ... of a dozen presents I'm hoping for, because there are, after all, 12 days of Christmas and I want my true love, the market, to give them all to me," Cramer said. "These are all a bit oddball and some [are] sappy, but I mean them, and I want you to have these presents, too."
