NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The markets are developing a bad case of seller's remorse, Jim Cramer told "Mad Money" viewers Monday.

Cramer explained BlackRock doesn't have the most private equity exposure, but it is a well-diversified company that happens to dominate the exchange-traded fund market, another sector that has been on fire of late. BlackRock currently controls 40% of the ETF business. With stocks on the rise, ETF popularity with investors is only likely to climb. BlackRock also sports a 2.7% dividend yield.
Outside of BlackRock, Cramer said he's also bullish on Blackstone ( BX). That stock has rallied 30% since the fiscal cliff debacle and the company's IPO business is also accelerating. Getting honorable mentions were shares of KKR ( KKR), with its stable 6.7% yield; Carlyle Group ( CG), with a 6.8% yield and Apollo Global Management ( APO), with its hefty 7.9% yield. Cramer said all of these firms will give investors exposure to not only the private equity market, but also to all of the other hot places to be when stock market dealmaking and investing heats up.
