Cramer recorded two versions of what sounds a bit too much like an endorsement.
From the version on the MacOS Stocks App:
Apple needs Joe Biden to beat Donald Trump in the election in November and win the presidency.
Apple’s been walking this tightrope with the president about China, and the new iPhone will not hit its sales projections – it will miss its sales projections – if the president steps up the Cold War with the Chinese.
And we know because. … The new phone was issued yesterday. It’s a great phone. It’s a 5G. But – it needs China to buy. It’s a great tribute to [Apple Chief Executive] Tim Cook that he’s been able to appease everyone, both sides. He has been deft in his ability to explain why everyone could be a winner.
Biden knows this. And he has no animus against Apple. And while he doesn’t want to be as soft on China as previous Democrats, Apple stands to sell more iPhones under Biden than under Trump. And that’s really what it’s about.
