Inside Cramer's Game Plan for Next Week

Friday, 4 Feb 2011 | 6:36 PM ET

Cramer on Friday disclosed which earnings reports he plans to follow next week.

Game Plan
Cramer prepares your portfolio for next week.

MONDAY

Sysco will report quarterly earnings before the opening bell. Cramer said its stock has been heating up lately, so he's interested to hear about what's ahead. The Houston-based company could provide a good read on food inflation, too.

FMC will release earrings after the closing bell. The Philadelphia-based company has exposure to bull markets in both chemicals and agriculture, he noted. Shares are up by 19 percent since he first recommended the stock on Sept. 16, 2011 at $66.66. Cramer remains bullish on this basic materials name.

TUESDAY

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries , the world's largest generic drug maker, will report before the opening bell. Generic drugs are key to cutting costs in health care, Cramer said. Its earnings results will give a good on the state of the health care industry, as well as heath care cost containment. Cramer cautioned investors to be careful, though, as this stock tends to sell off after reporting a positive quarter.

Cramer expects Motricity will report positive results after Tuesday's close. The Bellevue, Wash.-based company provides non-smartphones a portal to the Internet. OpenTable will also report after the closing bell. Cramer is bullish on the San Francisco-based company, which provides online restaurant reservations. He thinks it could deliver a "huge" number. The "Mad Money" host will also look for Walt Disney's earnings results after the close. Both News Corp. and General Electric recently said cable television is doing great, so Cramer will see if that's also true for Disney's cable networks, like ESPN.

WEDNESDAY

Coca-Cola will post earnings before Wednesday's opening bell. Traders are worried about how raw costs might be affecting profits, Cramer said. Should the stock fall after reporting earnings, Cramer recommends picking up shares.

After the closing bell, Akamai Technologies will deliver earnings results. Cisco Systems, another play on the mobile Internet tsunami, will report earnings after the close. During the last two quarters, Cramer said Cisco's results were "terrible."

Core Laboratories will post after the bell, too. The Amsterdam-based oil company tends to sell off after reporting earnings, Cramer said. If that happens, buy shares of CLB.

Terex , a machinery company, also reports after the closing bell. Crane maker Manitowoc reported earnings earlier this week and then exploded to the upside. Cramer thinks Terex will post similar results and recommends only buying shares on a pullback, being as the stock has already ran up this week.

Cramer will look for Polo Ralph Lauren to report earnings after Wednesday's close. He has a good feeling about the clothing brand, being as high-end retail sales are strong.

THURSDAY

PepsiCo will release earnings results ahead of Thursday's opening bell. Like with Coca-Cola, investors are worried about Pepsi's raw costs. Cramer would buy shares on any dip. Speaking of consumer goods, TreeHouse Foods will also post earnings Thursday morning. TreeHouse tends to sell off after reporting earnings, though, so Cramer recommends waiting to buy shares.

After Thursday's close, Chipotle Mexican Grill will report earnings and Cramer hopes to hear about its new Asian restaurant concept. There's been a lot of short interest in this name, but Cramer remains bullish on CMG.

FRIDAY

Discovery Communications will deliver its earnings results before the opening bell. Being as cable is "red hot," Cramer thinks this pure play will be too.

Total , a French oil company, will release earnings after the close. Cramer likes this stock and its 4.4 dividend yield.

When this story was published, Cramer's charitable trust owned Coca-Cola.
