Jim Cramer said the U.S. has too many retailers and too many department stores, but he does like Macy’s (M) at $35 a share. A viewer asked Cramer his thoughts on the sector, and he also said that J.C. Penney’s (JCP) will struggle along, and that Kohl’s (KSS) has a good balance sheet, but the stock had already moved higher on takeover rumors. And what about Sears Holdings (SHLD)? Cramer said ‘you don’t want to own the stock of a company whose stores you wouldn’t go to.’ Cramer was asked about CSX (CSX), and he said that Norfolk Southern (NSC) has more upside at these levels. Some viewers asked Cramer about oil related stocks, including ConocoPhillips (COP). Cramer responded that while the company has said it’s committed to its dividend, if oil falls into the $20s, Conoco won’t be able to maintain it. Cramer was also asked about the dividend at Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), and he pointed to some new research on that company from Action Alerts PLUS, his charitable trust. A viewer asked which foreign companies Cramer likes, and he said Deutsche Bank and Unilever will do well because Europe is doing better than people think. Cramer, who’s portfolio manager of Action Alerts PLUS and host of CNBC’s ‘Mad Money,’ answers viewers questions from social media in a daily video segment for TheStreet.
