Dozens of companies are set to report their earnings before the bell Tuesday, but Cramer has his eye on four in particular.
First, Cramer will be listening when 3M announces its quarterly results ahead of the open. MMM has stumbled the last couple of quarters and Cramer thinks it wants to show that the stumbles are history.
The "Mad Money" host will also have his eye on Cummins when it reports before the open. The stock has been hammered from its highs and management has lowered their European expectations. That said, Cramer thinks the stock has run and he doesn’t think it can run further.
Cramer expects good things when DuPont announces its earnings. The new DuPont is more about health, safety and feeding the world than housing and paints, he said. He thinks we'll hear a very bullish story about cost cuts and margin expansion, particularly because many of its raw building blocks have come down.
Finally, UPS releases its earnings ahead of the open and Cramer wants to hear something more positive about Asia this time around. Last quarter, the CEO also talked about politics and the lack of leadership. Cramer hopes the company sticks with the fundamentals. He’d also like to hear the dividend could be raised.
