“It’s clear that many investors have no idea what AI is,” Cramer said on “Mad Money.” “In all honesty, the reason they have no idea is because we haven’t seen anything transformative from the AI ​​camp yet.”

Cramer cautioned that it was not prudent to dismiss AI indicators like the chipmaker so quickly. Nvidia in favor of high-performing refinery and dollar store stocks. He said that kind of outlook is like telling investors, “Move over, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, it’s all about oil and gold.” »

“In terms of rounds, I don’t think the AI ​​game has started yet,” Cramer said.
