Buy Costco ( COST), Jim Cramer said on CNBC's "Stop Trading" segment Monday.Cramer said that the retailer, along with VF Corp. ( VFC), is a leader in the sector. "I was too negative about all of retail last week," Cramer said. He said he also likes TJX ( TJX). "VF Corp is doing better than its cohort," he said. The most important thing today is the bullish tape, Cramer said. He pointed out that even though MBIA ( MBI) has lost the capital it recently raised, it's up. "The tape is being colored by bulls," he said. FedEx ( FDX), up today after issuing bearish guidance, is another example, Cramer said. Cramer said the tech sector is providing leadership. " Research In Motion ( RIMM) is great. Apple ( AAPL) is great," he said. He reminded viewers to own Apple shares until the company releases its 3-G phone. He also said that MasterCard ( MA) is showing strength in the financials sector. As shares of Clear Channel ( CCU) ticked higher on a potential settlement of its buyout deal, Cramer said that another radio deal with Cumulus Media ( CMLS) didn't work out. "This is remarkable action," Cramer said. He said that in spite of his objections, rallies like the one today do occur.
