Cramer says the $193 billion worth of takeovers in pharma is a bullish sign for the sector; “This is the money from the sidelines that we don’t have,” he said. “It is really significant.” Cramer also noted General Electric's remaining steady even after a downgrade shows a shift in psychology. He suggested Goldman Sachs raise equity to pay off TARP funds. Cramer also noted Citigroup and Bank of America has been profitable.
