The rebound that took place early in the day today was "perfect" and just what Jim Cramer's been calling for, he said on TheStreet.com TV's Wall St. Confidential video Webcast Tuesday.

The market needed this opening to get rid of the last sellers, he told Aaron Task, the show's host. Texas Instruments ( TXN) has provided the market with an umbrella to take tech higher, said Cramer, who believes the tech rally could last another three to four days.

"These are predictable rallies," he said. "When you have a very bad options hangover that finishes right near the end of the day, and you have a big, bad event like Texas Instruments to get through, then you're going to have a several-day rally."

Meanwhile, the shorts, Cramer said, were caught leaning the wrong way on this rally on homebuilding and semiconductor stocks.

Cisco ( CSCO) and Apple ( AAPL) are the only two tech stocks Cramer said he's not going to be cynical about and recommend as buys in order to "bash the shorts."

He doesn't care about Tellabs ( TLAB), Nortel ( NT) or Alcatel ( ALU).

Regarding the housing market, even with Goldman Sachs' recent upgrade, "this is a group that the shorts are still fighting, aided by the media," he said. However, Cramer doesn't believe market-players can short the homebuilders anymore because "the momentum of the buyers is too great."

These stocks don't trade on their fundamentals, and he also noted the pin action in housing-related plays American Standard ( ASD) and Masco ( MAS), which have been going up every day, he said.

Moreover, Cramer believes toolmaker Black & Decker ( BDK) is probably a buy here because it has already preannounced.
