Question Some head confusion

Hello to all. I have yet another question.

An amp that i am looking at is a 4 ohm at 150 watt. It says it is stereo. I want to hook up two separate cabinets to the amp using stereo.

If the amp says stereo, does that mean that there are two outputs?
and would 2 four ohm cabinets do the job, or would they have to be even lower ohm rating, like 2 each.

As already mentioned, give the make and model number.

But, it almost certainly won't drive 2 ohm speakers, the mention of 4 ohms means that it's minimum load is 4 ohms (as is usual).

It may be 150W per channel, or it may be 75W per channel, with 4 ohms on each channel.
