Retailers away from

Wal-Mart

(WMT) - Get Report

are showing "outstanding" numbers, as consumers gravitate away from the retail Goliath and toward other stores like

J.C. Penney

(JCP) - Get Report

,

Target

(TGT) - Get Report

and

Bed Bath & Beyond

(BBBY) - Get Report

, Jim Cramer said on his

"RealMoney" radio show Monday.

Cramer said he's "amazed" that the company doesn't get criticized every day in the press and that the current management is able to hold on to their jobs.

Moreover, if people are looking for a way to play the strength in consumers away from retailers he suggested looking at credit card companies. Of these, Cramer considers

Capital One Financial

(COF) - Get Report

, which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS, as the "pure play" in the sector.

In addition, he also likes

MasterCard

(MA) - Get Report

but was hesitant in recommending the company because of the big run it recently had. Cramer suggested letting MasterCard come in before buying it here.

Oil has reached a "sweet spot," he continued. Not only is the price good for oil companies as they are getting more money for pumping more oil, but also the stock is too cheap to consider alternatives seriously, Cramer said.

As long as oil stays in the $60s, "we're hooked," he said. But if it goes to the $80s, we're not, and if it goes to the $50s, oil companies will start losing money.

"Right now they are winning," Cramer said.
