Stocks discussed on Jim Cramer's Stop Trading! TV Segment, Wednesday August 26.

Tiffany (NYSE:TIF), Family Dollar (NYSE:FDO), Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL), Williams Sonoma (NYSE:WSM)

Contrary to Wall Street's expectations of a sluggish back-to-school season, retail is rallying, and not just the discount stores. High-end and low-end retail are performing well, particularly Tiffany, Family Dollar, Ralph Lauren and Willams Sonoma.

"The rally is too broad for me to say it is not really happening," said Cramer, who thinks it is not just an isolated move, but is indicative of a general upward trend for the sector.
