Cramer On LabCorp, Health Care And Potentially Firing Fauci

On CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street,” Jim Cramer weighed in on Laboratory Corp LH, health care and the potential firing of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“It has always helped to buy health care stocks three [or] four days after the election,” said Cramer.

Going more into health care, Cramer name-dropped Laboratory Corp.

“The company which has really distinguished itself is LabCorp,” said Cramer. He said they have unbelievable numbers.

Cramer also discussed a clip at a recent Trump rally that showed the crowd chanting “fire Fauci.”

“Anything that signals ‘Don’t listen to the scientists’ is going to be positive for the market,” said Cramer. That suggests that firing Dr. Fauci might lift stocks.
