Jim Cramer's paying close attention to "down and out" retail.
Well, Matthew Boss, J.P. Morgan's retail analyst--and someone Cramer admires--made some calls on retailers.
But first, who is Boss?
"If you don't know Boss, he does a ton of fieldwork to find out how retailers are doing. His work is coming up with some pretty shocking results. He's saying that his work shows that a number of store chains could have better-than-expected earnings, including some that will be shockingly better," wrote Cramer in his Real Money column Monday afternoon.
"He says that 76% of companies across his universe of department store and specialty softlines should meet or beat expectations, with stores like Macy's (M), Kohl's (KSS) and most important, Nordstrom (JWN), which has been a huge underperformer that he now thinks can have a very strong quarter," continued Cramer.
"I think retail is a great place to be," said Cramer on TheStreet's Daily Live show Wednesday morning.
