Jim Cramer said the U.S. has too many retailers and too many department stores, but he does like Macy's (M - Get Report) at $35 a share.

A viewer asked Cramer his thoughts on the sector, and he also said that J.C. Penney  (JCP - Get Report) will struggle along, and that Kohl's (KSS - Get Report) has a good balance sheet, but the stock had already moved higher on takeover rumors.

And what about Sears Holdings (SHLD) ? Cramer said, "you don't want to own the stock of a company whose stores you wouldn't go to."

Cramer was asked about CSX (CSX - Get Report) , and he said that Norfolk Southern (NSC - Get Report) has more upside at these levels.

Some viewers asked Cramer about oil related stocks, including ConocoPhillips (COP - Get Report) . Cramer responded that while the company has said it's committed to its dividend, if oil falls into the $20s, Conoco won't be able to maintain it.

Cramer was also asked about the dividend at Energy Transfer Partners (ETP)  and he pointed to some new research on that company from Action Alerts PLUS, his charitable trust. Energy Transfer Partners is among the stocks held by Action Alerts PLUS.

A viewer asked which foreign companies Cramer likes, and he said Deutsche Bank  (DB - Get Report) and Unilever  (UL) will do well because Europe is doing better than people think.

But Cramer cautioned if the dollar stays strong, the companies make more money but investors may not be able to on the actual stock.

Cramer was asked about two restaurant companies, YUM! Brands (YUM - Get Report) and Shake Shack (SHAK - Get Report) . Cramer said YUM is a buy ahead of the planned spinoff of its China business, adding the company is making a comeback but it's not factored into the stock.

He was less upbeat on Shake Shack, saying the average store is too highly valued, which is why the stock price has fallen.

A viewer asked about a possible merger between Checkpoint (CHKP - Get Report) and CyberArk (CYBR - Get Report) , and he responded that he won't recommend stocks based on takeover speculation.

Finally, Cramer was asked about Hain Celestial (HAIN - Get Report) and WhiteWave (WWAV) . Cramer said the companies have been tied to the performance of Whole Foods (WFM) , which has struggled. Once Whole Foods stabilizes, he believes the stocks will fare better. As for Whole Foods, he likes the stock at $30 or $31 a share. WhiteWave is also held by Action Alerts PLUS.
