Jim Cramer , the host of CNBC’s “Mad Money,” has suggested that investors should look beyond the Magnificent Seven tech stocks for potential high-yield investments. What Happened : On Thursday, Cramer acknowledged the significant influence of megacap tech companies, including Apple Inc AAPL, Microsoft Corp MSFT, Alphabet Inc GOOGL GOOG, Amazon.com Inc AMZN, Meta Platforms Inc META, NVIDIA Corp NVDA, and Tesla Inc TSLA, on the market but also pointed out other stocks that could offer substantial returns, reported CNBC. “I do not want to denigrate anything that can give you a sizable, risk-free return, which is what you’re getting,” Cramer said of CDs. “But can we at least admit that you might be missing out on some huge gains if you just steer clear of the stock market?” See Also: Tesla Investors Pledge Support For Elon Musk, His 25% Ownership Goal: Shareholder Letter Calls For Tesla Cramer highlighted several stocks that have seen a rise of 10% or more since the previous Tuesday. These included XPO Inc XPO, a trucking company that capitalized on a competitor’s bankruptcy and increased cargo per truck, and Monolithic Power Systems Inc MPWR, a chip company involved in AI that saw a surge after a strong quarter. He also mentioned Advanced Drainage Systems Inc WMS, an infrastructure company, and Regenxbio Inc RGNX, a drug company that recently revealed a potential treatment for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. “We didn’t get to these new highs just through the megacaps, we got here thanks to moves like we’ve had since just last Tuesday,” Cramer said. “All of this might be happening because the market remains a scorned animal, a lowly skunk in a 5% CD block party. All I ask is that at least you consider participating in stocks.” Why It Matters : Cramer’s advice comes in the wake of his previous insights into the market. He recently urged investors to make room for stocks before potential Fed rate cuts, emphasizing the opportunity for gains in the interim. He also advised investors to capitalize on market anomalies for profitable investments, noting the market’s unconventional behavior over the past two years. Earlier in January, Cramer also suggested the possibility of Tesla Inc TSLA being replaced by Eli Lilly and Co LLY in the Magnificent Seven list of mega-cap stocks, indicating his belief in the potential of other companies to provide significant returns.
