TheStreet's Jim Cramer talked about retail stocks Monday from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Cramer, who's portfolio manager of Action Alerts PLUS, said he finds no reason to be in Gap (GPS), other than the dividend, and if that's the case he'd rather invest in Macy's (M). Cramer said while he likes both Dollar General (DG) and Dollar Tree (DLTR), he prefers Walmart (WMT), which recently lower earnings expectations. Cramer said if you can buy Walmart stock and its 3 percent yield when its down, that's the name to be in. Cramer also discussed Gilead (GILD) and International Paper (IP) while answering viewers' questions from social media. You can send questions to Cramer's Facebook (FB) page, or find him on Twitter (TWTR), and use #CramerQ.
