It's far from a guarantee that the broader stock markets will hold up Monday, let alone this week. But investors who know where to look may just strike gold.

One of the strongest sectors out there is retail, with one of the sector's strongest segment's being apparel, TheStreet's Jim Cramer said on CNBC's "Stop Trading" segment.

Specifically, he highlighted VF Corp. (VFC) , which is up 2.54% to $81.30 and at the highs was about $1 per share away from its all-time highs. That may not sound all that special given the market's continual run higher. But after last week's drumming, it shows just how well VF Corp. stock is holding up.

"Watch these stocks," Cramer reasoned, "because people are looking for a place to [invest]."

Right now, they're going to retail and he doesn't view that as a mistake. Inventories have been good and that means that discounting isn't as prevalent. While that's good for apparel companies like VF Corp., it's also good for the retailers, explained Cramer, who also manages the Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust portfolio.

He highlighted a few companies, like Macy's (M) , Walmart (WMT) and Costco (COST) , which should do well in this environment.

At the time of publication, Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS had no position in any security mentioned.
