Jim Cramer is Talking About These 10 Stocks in September

·11 min read

In this article, we will look at 10 stocks that Jim Cramer is talking about in September. If you want to explore more stocks that journalist investor, Jim Cramer, is talking about in September, you can also take a look at Jim Cramer is Talking About These 5 Stocks in September.

Jim Cramer has acquired a massive following on social media from his finance TV show, Mad Money on CNBC, where he gives his opinion on stocks and financial markets. Jim Cramer is a law graduate from Harvard, and also a former hedge fund manager. Jim Cramer averaged a return of above 20% during his hedge fund career. He stepped down from his roles at Cramer & Co. in 2001.

What Does Powell Want?

Jim Cramer has been a prominent commentator on financial markets. Jim Cramer thinks that the Fed is more likely to continue raising interest rates until the economy slows down. On September 1, Jim Cramer spoke on what, in his view, it will take for the Fed to stop tightening. Firstly, Jim Cramer thinks that one of the Fed's primary concerns is wage inflation. Cramer thinks the Fed "wants to see an end to the incessant job hopping". Cramer said:

"He (Fed chair Jerome Powell) needs companies to lay off their workers, or even go under, to cool down the labor market..."

Another thing that according to the journalist investor will help the Fed ease monetary policy is a "fintech collapse." Here is the journalist investor's view on "buy now, pay later places" :

"These buy now, pay later companies think that they have the ability to lend with impunity, and Powell needs that impunity to go away. Now it may take a scandal before this could happen, or maybe it will just take a spike in bad loans... These pseudo banks are a thorn in the side of the Fed..."

Jim Cramer thinks that if special purpose acquisition corporations and private venture capital firms go bankrupt, the Fed is more likely to "stop bringing the pain". Jim Cramer said:

"We have had this endless job hopping in silicon valley, it's time for these startups to have down rounds or run out of funding entirely. That would be an immense help to Powell."

The journalist investor also thinks that the Fed would stop hiking interest rates if some "high profile financiers run out of money". Finally, Jim Cramer said that the Fed is "waiting for the pain from all the double ordering in this country to kick in". Here is what he said:

"Right now, for instance, the automakers are still scrambling from double ordered chips. But by the time they get those chips, potential car buyers will be too scared to buy or lease. Then the price in the car lot goes down and the price of the used car lot goes down, and the next thing you know, inflation subsides...

We're now in 'good news is bad news' mood. Because the Fed's not gonna stop bringing the pain until we see real deterioration... From the mall, to the store, to the house, to the yacht, and to the car lots, it's all gotta change"

With the Fed not showing any signs of stopping its aggressive rate hike schedule and inflation running at all-time highs, Jim Cramer is recommending a variety of stocks that investors can hold long to reap handsome gains and also use to recession-proof their portfolios. Some of the most notable stocks that Jim Cramer is talking about in September include Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSE:LNG), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO), and CVS Health Corporation (NYSE:CVS).
