Stocks discussed on Jim Cramer's Stop Trading! TV Segment, Wednesday May 19.

If the complete collapse of the European economy doesn't happen in the next 48 hours, postulated Cramer, investors will be forced to admit that Europe is suffering only from a temporary "downturn," because the intense negative pressure on stocks can't be maintained longer than two more days without an actual European disaster happening. The shrunken multiples on American stocks can only be justified by a Lehman-style collapse, explained Cramer. "Something bad has to happen soon," he continued, "or U.S. stocks are going to go higher."
