NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The all-time high list is littered with stocks of all kinds, and that breadth is one of the things that makes this rally so delicious, Jim Cramer said Monday on "Mad Money". What is breadth? That is when stocks from many different sectors are all participating in a rally. With the S&P 500 up over 20% for the year, that's clearly what we have in today's markets, said Cramer. The transports is one sector participating, with FedEx ( FDX) and Boeing ( BA) among the standouts. Retail is another hot group, with Walgreen ( WAG) and Costco ( COST) leading the charge. Even in smaller sectors that few follow there are new highs, said Cramer -- just look at water, with Pall ( PLL) and Pentair ( PNR), and packaging, with Sealed Air ( SEE) and Ball ( BLL). Investors probably expect to see biotech on the new high list with Amgen ( AMGN), but probably not defense stocks like Raytheon ( RTN), which is supposed to be fighting the sequester. Then there are the spirits stocks, the media giants, utilities, software and more, all participating in this remarkable end of the year surge. Cramer said perhaps the only sector not participating is the financials, where the headlines of lawsuits and regulations are still translating into real earnings risks for investors.
