Stocks are up Monday as a busy week of earnings awaits investors in the stock market and the Federal Reserve is set to meet. 

Jim Cramer discussed this upcoming week of earnings on Mad Money and shared why stocks sell-off after reporting earnings when they shouldn’t. 

Cramer shared in his Real Money column Friday why investors should focus on the performance of the companies during their earnings and not on the noise around the company.

Cramer resents some of the new styles of investing because stocks are not causes. Stocks are pieces of paper tied, not to the short-sellers or the owners, but to the performance of the company.

Here is a recap of TheStreet’s premarket coverage for Monday, Apr. 26:
