SBUX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
Some classic growth stocks--Starbucks, Amazon, and Google--are coming back to life, and I like that because they provide "tells" that we should be a little less worried about interest rates going up.

These are quintessential long-dated asset stocks, and if rates are going higher because inflation is building in the system, these stocks couldn't be having this kind of move.

TheStreet.com logoThese names, plus the drug stocks, are signaling that you can over-emphasize your fear of rates. What might matter so much isn't the direction of rates, which should be going up if things are getting better, but their velocity: If the increases occur in a less rapid way, people can protect themselves and have a chance to take action.

These classic growth stocks are saying--to me, at least--that if we are going to 2.5 percent, we aren't going to go there immediately, or else they would be getting hammered.

Disclosures:
Cramer's charitable trust has no positions in the stocks mentioned.
