Cramer’s week ahead: Friday’s jobs report will make or break July’s rally

UKTN’s Jim Cramer said Monday that the key data this week is the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ release of its July nonfarm payroll report on Friday morning.

“If it shows some job growth without wage inflation, then the fantastic July rally could hold. But if it shows booming hiring with exceptionally large wage increases, then some, if not much of it, of this rally will be withdrawn,” said the “Mad Money” host.

Job growth has been strong this year, leading economists to say the US is not in a recession, even with two consecutive quarters of negative GDP.

Another strong jobs report could mean that the Fed, which again hiked 75 basis points in July, needs to step up its efforts to slow down the economy and inflation.

Cramer also provided a preview of this week’s results. All earnings and revenue estimates are from FactSet.
