All good things must come to an end, Jim Cramer said Thursday on CNBC’s “ Mad Money .” While investors tend to trade off of broad sector moves, reality sets in when earnings season swings around they get hit with the cold, hard facts of how these companies are really doing.
Stocks trimmed their losses at the end of topsy-turvy trading on Wall Street today, but the major averages were still lower across the board.
