NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Sometimes, just delivering on your promises is enough to soothe investor worries, Jim Cramer told Debra Borchardt at TheStreet.com Friday.

That was certainly the case with luxury retailer Tiffany , which delivered only lackluster earnings but is still seeing its shares rise.

Cramer explained that when a company misses earnings repeatedly, even being able to meet the bare minimums is often enough to begin building investor confidence and reliability. That said, Cramer noted that he's not a fan of Tiffany and prefers Nordstrom much more.
