Jim, what do you think of Wells Fargo (WFC) ?-- Franco from New York

Federal Reserve

will slow down the rate hikes, I don't want to be in the banks.

I don't want to be in the banks other than

Commerce Bancorp

, that is. Commerce has very strong deposit growth and is taking share from the bigger banks.

I know I sound like a broken record on Commerce, which I also own for my charitable trust,

ActionAlertsPLUS. But at this point in the rate hike cycle, you need strong organic growth, and Commerce has it in spades.

Jimbalaya! Is it time to get back into Urban Outfitters (URBN) ?-- Fran from California

James J. Cramer:

Right now, I'm not crazy about the teen retailers. While Urban has a ton of room to grow and a great long-term outlook, there is a lot of near-term risk due to the denim glut we're seeing.

I'd consider getting into Urban if it dropped below $50, but I don't like the risk-reward with the stock trading above $55.
