There’s nothing stopping former ‘market darlings’ from going lower, Jim Cramer warns


CNBC’s Jim Cramer told investors Friday that the stock prices of certain newer businesses that experienced great success during this pandemic may continue to fall.

A new 52-week low of $64.30 was also recorded by the firm earlier today, which is far lower than its previous 52-week peak at $314.76 last August.

“We don’t care where former market darlings are.” … We only care where they’re going,” he added.
