With stocks aiming for a fourth straight day of gains after Monday's sell-off, Jim Cramer and Scott Wapner explored market reaction to lots of earnings news, especially in tech: Intel shares under pressure after issuing the company's forecast overshadowed better-than expected quarterly results, with the chipmaker saying the global semiconductor shortage could last well into 2023. The anchors compared the Dow component to rival chipmakers Nvidia and AMD -- and reacted to what Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger told CNBC about trying to overcome supply constraints. On the social media front, Snap shares posting a double-digit gain and Twitter also up sharply in reaction to upbeat quarterly results and guidance. The anchors highlighted the advertising revenue growth benefiting both Snap and Twitter -- and looked at what's at stake for big tech companies due out with earnings next week. Jim and Scott also took a closer look at why the markets are shrugging off warnings from the CDC about rising cases and deaths due to the COVID-19 Delta Variant. Also in focus: American Express' earnings beat helped by increased travel spending, Honeywell shares fall despite better-than-expected results and raised guidance, General Motors issuing a second recall of its Chevy Bolt electric vehicle due to fire risks, and Boston Beer -- home of the Samuel Adams brand -- tumbles after cutting its full-year outlook.
