That transfer comes shortly after a collection of current Wall Street Journal articles that mentioned Facebook repeatedly discovered its Instagram to be dangerous to some youngsters.
“Compare that to Apple or Salesforce or Amazon — nobody’s afraid they’ll lose tons of customers because they’re truly best of breed. That’s why I think their pullback is definitely a buying opportunity,” Cramer mentioned, following a session wherein all three corporations closed within the crimson.
“You can buy these stocks when they’re down because you know management is going to figure it out. Amazon will automate,” he mentioned. “Apple will find a way to build all the phones it needs. [Salesforce CEO Marc] Benioff will buy whatever companies Salesforce needs to stay competitive, like he did with Slack.”

“I do indeed have faith that CEO Mark Zuckerberg can pivot, even if he thinks he’s doing everything in his power to make his site safe. It’s not up to him, though. He needs to find a way to solve the credibility problem, otherwise Facebook will become an also-ran,” Cramer mentioned.
Cramer mentioned he believes Zuckerberg “can pull it off,” however the firm will not be in the identical class as Apple or Amazon till that occurs.
“While tech gets slammed by this rotation, you need to remember that best of breed companies don’t just go away. If you’re in it for the long haul, these stocks are worth buying on the way down,” Cramer mentioned.
