NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- On his Wednesday Stop Trading! segment on CNBC, Jim Cramer took a look at Nike (NKE) - Get Report ahead of the World Cup soccer match to be held in South Africa.

Cramer said he his hearing rumors that Nike could receive a guide-down ahead of the games, which he believes would be a "godsend."

There have been rumors recently that Nike orders haven't been particularly strong.

Cramer, for one, believes that Nike is a good long-term stock to invest in -- a stock whose long-term driver is the rising middle-class of China. "I just want to keep Nike in front of people," he said, pointing out that the first thing middle class people in China do when they have the money is to buy Nike wear.

Under Armour

(UA) - Get Report

is an interesting play too, Cramer said, but hasn't made as strong of an impression him as Nike.

Ahead of

Stop Trading!

,

Caterpillar

(CAT) - Get Report

raised its quarterly dividend -- even though bears predicted that the company would have to cut it.

Cramer recommended Caterpillar as a buy, and one of the stronger stories out there. He noted that it,

3M

(MMM) - Get Report

and

DuPont

(DD) - Get Report

are doing far better than people realize. Cramer thinks that China's slowdown has bottomed out as Caterpillar continues working to expand its business in China and other emerging markets.

As

BP's

(BP) - Get Report

shares continue to be battered by the chain of events that followed the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Cramer suggested looking at

Weatherford International

(WFT) - Get Report

-- which he owns for his charitable trust -- given that it's very much a "dusty," or land-based, oil-services play.
