Jim Cramer's Investing Club meeting Wednesday: Microsoft, P&G, Estee Lauder

By Krystal Hur

Every weekday the CNBC Investing Club with Jim Cramer holds a "Morning Meeting" livestream at 10:20 a.m. ET. Here's a recap of Wednesday's key moments. Don't buy the Microsoft dip Buy P & G Watch Estee Lauder 1. Don't buy the Microsoft dip Microsoft (MSFT) was trading down around 0.75% midmorning Wednesday, at $240.24 a share, after the company issued softer-than-expected guidance for its fiscal third quarter Tuesday, despite delivering a slim second-quarter earnings beat. Our main concern is around the company's expectation revenue growth at cloud computing unit Azure will decelerate by four-to-five percentage points in constant currency, down from a mid-30s percent growth rate last month. We are holding off on buying the stock while it's down, until we see renewed Azure growth. 2. Buy P & G We bought 50 of Procter and Gamble (PG) on Wednesday at roughly $139 apiece to take advantage of the stock's recent decline. While the rest of the market has largely favored tech this year, we're sticking with defensive stocks to maintain a diverse portfolio that can withstand economic turbulence. Jim Cramer had recently said he would add to the Club's P & G position if the stock fell to $140 a share. "You can't be a coward if you want to know how to invest. This is the gut-wrenching moment at Procter. This is when you want to buy," Jim said Wednesday. 3. Watch Estee Lauder Piper Sandler on Wednesday named Estee Lauder (EL) a top pick, predicting a substantial upside to the stock as China a key market for the cosmetics giant continues to reopen. Estee Lauder is also a margin expansion story. Chinese consumers will likely buy more makeup as they return to the outside world, generating higher profits for the company. Shares of Estee Lauder were down more than 2.5% Wednesday morning, at $270 apiece a level at which we would consider buying. (Jim Cramer's Charitable Trust is long EL, PG, MSFT.
