"People were shorting FedEx (FDX) all last week because employment was bad," said Jim Cramer on Monday's "Stop Trading!" segment. "People seem to have forgotten it."

As for defensive name

Hewlett-Packard

(HPQ)

,

Oracle

Cramer was shocked that

Caterpillar

(CAT)

announced a price increase for 2010, which told him that "we're too United States-centric. The rest of the world is recovering."

Caterpillar and

Bucyrus

As for

Joy Global

(JOYG)

, Cramer said that even though the Chinese are aiming for more ecological sensitivity by the year 2020, in the meantime, they've got to keep digging coal, and that's what you use Joy Global for."

Finally, Cramer liked Goldman Sachs' call on

Wells Fargo

(WFC)

Action Alerts PLUS

charitable trust. It "looks like a great call," he said. "If I were short Wells Fargo, I would want to cover.
