Stocks discussed on Jim Cramer's Stop Trading! TV Segment, Monday March 22.

Kimberly Clark (NYSE:KMB), Boeing (NYSE:BA), Williams-Sonoma (NYSE:WSM), Bed Bath and Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY)

Cramer once again urged Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) to do away with its "conviction sell" rating when just "sell" will do. Such a rating should only be applied to "the world's worst company" and not to Kimberly Clark (KMB); "Don't hate Kimberly, go hate a company with a bad brand name or image." He was also critical of Oppenheimer for being bearish on Boeing all the way up and suddenly upgrading it at $72.

Short-sellers are going to get burned by a housewares sector that is "on fire," according to Cramer. Williams-Sonoma's (WSM) better-than-expected earnings report is a tell for household goods. Cramer would buy Bed, Bath and Beyond (BBBY) which has expanded beyond home furnishings and now sells basics for the home, including food. It could give discounters a a run for their money. On the other side of the coin, TJX (NYSE:TJX) is making a successful expansion into home furnishings.
