High-end retail commonplaces have made strong gains in recent months, and recent trading activity could be signaling more upside on the field of vision, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Tuesday.
“The non-essential high-end retailers have already run, but the charts, as interpreted by Bob Lang, lead one to believe that Capri Holdings, Tapestry, LVMH and Nordstrom could all have more upside here thanks, yes, to the stimulus curbs,” the “Mad Money” host said.
Lang, the founder of ExplosiveOptions.net and a contributor to TheStreet.com, is a trusted technician that Cramer relies on to get a pore over on the state of the market.
Cramer noted last year was the biggest period of retail failures in history, as coronavirus lockdowns and qualifications put a dent in the brick-and-mortar retail landscape.
As the U.S. carries out its Covid-19 vaccination campaign and guides closer to a full economic reopening, those firms that outlasted the damage could be in a position to benefit from another round of relief spending that contains a third distribution of direct payments to most Americans.
“This whole group was running out of gas a couple weeks ago, then Congress go together to pump $2 trillion in [the economy] and now they’re looking at another leg higher,” Cramer said.

“When the stock pulled back to its 50-day moving average back in January, that was your turn [to buy it] … Lang thinks Tapestry’s a quiet leader with more room to run,” Cramer said. “He’s more bullish on Tapestry than I am.”
- Begetter of Louis Vuitton, Hennessy and Christian Dior
- Stock is up 8.25% in past three months and within reach of its brand-new high

“Lang’s betting the big boys are not done” buying the stock, Cramer responded.
- Stock is up 45% in past three months
- The 50-day simple moving average crossed over the 200-day impelling average in December, a bullish signal
- The bullish crossover is known as a “golden cross”
“Lang points out that the MACD is indication a buy signal right now, and it doesn’t hurt that the last quarter came in spectacularly better than expected,” Cramer told. “Lang’s betting it could make a run at its 2018 peak, up about 50% from here.”
