Jim Cramer: This Market Isn't Done Going Higher

McDonald's (MCD) has a health problem. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) has a litigation problem. Wells Fargo (WFC) has an earnings problem.   On a bad market these stocks would open down and go lower all day and finish at their lows at the brokers can then say "hey we got you out at a better price than the last one."   In a good market they open down and then they stay down but don't go lower.   In a terrific market?   You have what you see today where all three open down and then rally so that anyone who bought the opening made real good money.   Frankly, I find it a little astonishing that you could be hit with a $4.5 billion punitive damage and your stock's really barely down. Wells' was not a good quarter and, to be candid, no one even cared other than those who bolted at the opening and Mcdonald's? Problem fixed?   I know that there are more people I talk to who despise the market than those who like it. My Twitter (TWTR) feed, filled with REAL followers, is abuzz with hecklers of the market. Not me.   Still, you can bet that these declines are so niggling, so small, and the recovery so great, that some of these naysayers have to change their view.   But they won't.   Which is probably why we aren't done going higher even with the President ready to strike at a moment's notice against any of our allies.   Care to guess which is next?   I am betting it is Mexico.
