Apparel maker VF Corp.'s recent earnings report may not have been a perfect quarter, but it was by no means a "lose-10-percent-of-your-value-in-a-single-day" quarter, CNBC's Jim Cramer said on Monday.
What really happened to make VF Corp.'s stock lose nearly 11 percent in a single trading day was the fact that the Vans and North Face parent reported earnings in the heart of a panic, setting off selling at any hint of weakness, he said.
"VF Corp. was a victim of great expectations," the "Mad Money" host told investors. "I think the stock is a bargain here, trading at less than 19 times next year's earnings estimates. The core of the growth story, the strength of Vans and direct-to-consumer, is still very much intact. "
And the company's impending spin-offs of its underperforming denim brands, Wrangler and Lee, could unlock even more value for VF Corp., Cramer said.
"I'd be a buyer down here, as I think the stock has become a steal at these levels, certainly, and will return to excellent growth once it sheds the jeans and goes on in the rapidly expanding businesses that we like so much," he said.
Cramer worries that the escalating conflict between the United States and China over trade, with officials from the two countries Monday, could have even more serious implications than many think.
If trade talks abruptly end, a distinct possibility considering both countries' increasingly , "we better get used to some serious collateral damage" to the stock market, he said.
He noted that referring to China's government as the "Chinese Communist Party," as top White House economic advisor did in a Sunday interview with the Financial Times, could mean that the administration is souring on reaching any kind of business deal with China.
"I think the president wants the economic equivalent of regime change," Cramer said. "Yep, not an economic war, but a cold war, with the Chinese once again playing the pre-Nixon role of worldwide nemesis. Needless to say, that is not what Wall Street wants to see."

CEO does not expect anything serious to come from the United States' trade dispute with China, he told Cramer in a Monday interview.
"I, thus far, have heard, in working with the administration, that we are being a good actor and a good player and we expect that business will be fine coming out of China," Brian Goldner, also the toymaker's chairman, said on "Mad Money." "Go[ing] forward, we don't expect to see any major tariff situation."
Even so, Hasbro has been moving production out of China, the CEO said. The company has moved manufacturing operations for 25 percent of its revenue-generating products, including Play-Doh, back to the United States, he said.

Cramer and legendary technician Larry Williams say shares of , an old-line technology giant that has transitioned its business to the cloud, could be ready to rally even after the company's .
Last Tuesday, IBM missed analysts' revenue predictions in its third-quarter earnings report, with overall revenue declining 2 percent year over year and some of its faster-growing sections underperforming.
IBM's stock shed as much as 5 percent in response to the report. Now, shares of the company are near levels not seen since January 2016.
But according to Williams, who has traded futures, commodities and stocks for over 50 years, written 11 books, created numerous technical indicators and runs IReallyTrade.com, IBM's stock has some key technical trends working in its favor.

The troubling signs in the stock market — rallies in recession-era favorites like utilities and retailers and breakdowns in economically sensitive stocks tied to construction and housing — are all but lost on , Cramer argued Monday.
"When I scrutinize the charts of, say, , , , , , , , , [and] dozens of others that are involved in the construction ... of housing in particular, it screams 'slowdown,' " Cramer said. "Yet I honestly believe that if Fed chief Jerome Powell looked at these stocks, it might mean nothing to him."
"He's becoming like a racehorse with blinkers on," Cramer continued.

In Cramer's lightning round, he zoomed through his take on callers' favorite stocks:
: "We're a buyer of it for ActionAlerts. Why? Because, if you take a look, there was an article today about wanting to get into security. I think everybody wants to get into security and Palo Alto's the best. The chart's bad — enough already. "
: "It's a great opportunity. There's just a lot of good chemicals within that one and it has held up much better than everybody else."
