CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Thursday named 12 American manufacturers investors should watch to capitalize on what he calls the country’s “industrial renaissance.”
“The United States has recaptured its industrial supremacy sector by sector by sector. It was only obscured by Wall Street’s now-defunct love affair with high-growth tech stocks. Now that we don’t love the technology, the industry, Renaissance has become the key to identifying winners in this market,” said the Mad Money host.
“If you want leadership, if you want companies that make things and sell them at a profit while returning capital to shareholders, look no further than our big American manufacturers. Their stocks are amazing places to be,” he added.
Cramer’s comments come after a turbulent day in the market — the Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 1.05% on Thursday, while the S&P 500 fell 1.48%. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite fell 2.07%.
Here’s Cramer’s list of American manufacturers that investors should have on their radar:
- Procter & Gamble
- Lam Research
Cramer acknowledged that the US semiconductor sector could do better.
“I don’t want to belittle software, the crown jewel of America’s economy, but tech companies…they don’t make it here, with the exception of some semiconductor investment companies like Lam Research,” he said. “Otherwise, your best bet is to go to Taiwan Semi, where the actual chips are made.”
