On January 8, 2021, CNBC.com published Kevin Stankiewicz’s article titled “There’s not enough stocks to go around” — Cramer says that’s a key factor in market rally”
The article writes that “the stock market is off to a strong start in 2021, after robust gains last year despite the coronavirus pandemic. According to CNBC’s Jim Cramer, one reason for the continued rally in equities is, simply, a lack of people willing to sell.
‘There’s not enough stocks to go around,’ Cramer said on ‘Squawk Box.’ ‘The stock market is reflecting the strength of individual companies. There are 500 companies in the S&P Probably 400 of them are doing better than we thought’ they would be doing during a pandemic.”
“People want to own stocks and there is not enough stock. There’s just not — not yet.”
“It’s not 1998 or 2000,” Cramer said of the current market rally during the pandemic. “If you get the economy open, then you’ve got the Disneys (NYSE: DIS) of the world flying. And as the economy stays closed, you’ve got a whole bunch of stocks, the Amazons (NASDAQ: AMZN), flying. There is a lot of stuff flying.”
A lack of investors interested in selling stocks is helping propel the market higher. The investment landscape during the COVID pandemic has been unusual, saying “there’s no playbook.”
