In Cramer’s opinion, though, that particular objection is bogus for a few reasons. To start, he noted stocks started rallying when jobless claims started to fall. Furthermore, Cramer pointed out that Wall Street is trading stocks, not jobs, and there’s a big difference.
“You want your stock to go higher? Then you sell more product with fewer people,” Cramer said. “Firing, not hiring, gets your company’s stock up if you don’t have a lot of revenue growth.”
Meanwhile, Europe’s debt crisis has been another knock on the rally, Cramer said. As it turns out, though, Cramer said many European markets have been outperforming the Dow while other European markets are tied or barely down.
“So ask yourselves, if the European markets are doing so well, why the heck should our stock market be kept down by them?” Cramer asked. “If Germany’s up 18 percent with that negative data, shouldn’t we at least be even with them, and not way behind them as we are right now?”
All things considered, Cramer recommends investors “immunize yourself against this nonsense” by investing in dividend-paying stocks.
