Cramer: 20 Must-Watch Earnings Next Week

Friday, 11 Feb 2011 | 6:51 PM ET

What follows is a day-by-day look into which earnings reports Cramer is monitoring in the week ahead.

MONDAY

Game Plan
Cramer gets your portfolio ready for next week.

Limelight Networks will report quarterly earnings results after the closing bell. The Tempe, Ariz.-based company provides services that accelerates the delivery of content on the Internet. Cramer is interested how its results will compare to that of rival Akamai Technologies , which recently delivered disappointing guidance.

For a read on housing, Cramer will look for Masco's earnings results on Monday. The Taylor, Mich.-based lumber company manufacturers, distributes and installs home and building products.

Cramer also plans to monitor metallurgical coal miner Walter Energy's earnings on Monday. The coal bull market has slowed, as of late. He's curious whether Walter can reignite the market by taking share of Australian mines that are closed due to weather and ship its product to China.

TUESDAY

Before the opening bell, Cramer will watch for CenturyLink's earnings results. Along with Frontier and Windstream , it's one of his fave high-yielding, rural telco plays. As CenturyLink closes in on its acquisition of Qwest , the stock could run higher. Cramer will also take time to look for Fossil's earnings Tuesday morning. This stock has had a tremendous run, so Cramer recommends taking profits on half of your position.

One of Cramer's fave health care techn names, Allscripts Healthcare Solutions , will report after Tuesday's close. Cramer projects a good quarter, but told investors to be careful. The stock is at a 52-week high and tends to sell-off on earnings.

Tech giant Dell will also give earnings after the close. Cramer doesn't expect its earnings to be any worse than what Cisco Systems reported.

Real estate investment trusts EastGroup Properties and Federal Reality are set to report Tuesday afternoon. Cramer is interested to learn how retail and office rentals are going and whether the REIT bull market will continue.

WEDNESDAY

Deere is scheduled to give earnings before the opening bell. While Cramer thinks its a solid company, he said it tends to have a difficult conference call. The number of sell-offs following earnings outweight the number of rallies, he explained. He recommends waiting until after the call to buy this stock.

Devon Energy also reports Wednesday morning. The stock recently had a huge run higher, even without an accompanying run in natural gas prices. Cramer thinks it could sell off when it reports earnings.

Finally, Owens Corning will release its results before the opening bell. Like Masco, Cramer thinks it's a good read on housing. With shares up going into eanrings, Cramer recommends taking half of your position off the table.

After the closing bell, Agnico-Eagle will share its quarterly results. It's stock has been falling along with the price of gold. This stock is down huge from its high, but gold has only mildly corrected, though. Cramer thinks its worth a look.

Data storage play NetApp will also report after the close. During its last earnings call, the tech company didn't sell the story adequately and the stock got hit. If that happens again, Cramer recommends buying NTAP shares. Speaking of tech, NVIDIA is also to report earnings Wednesday afternoon. Cramer recommends taking profits in this name.

THURSDAY

Barrick Gold is set to deliver earnings results before the market opens on Thursday. Cramer thinks it has a fantastic story and worth a look at current levels.

Meanwhile, Timberland will provide an update on the show bull market when it reports Thursday morning. Speaking of retail, Norstrom will release earnings after Thursday's closing bell.

FRIDAY

Campbell Soup is scheduled to share its earnings results before Friday's open. Cramer hopes it will discuss which brands the Chinese are interested in, especially since the stock has been struggling lately.

Eldorado Gold , a fast-growing gold company, will report Friday morning, too.

Ultra Petroleum will also report on Friday. Being as it has properties close to assets the Chinese purchased from Chesapeake, Cramer wants to know if Ultra is interested in a similar joint venture.

When this story was published, Cramer's charitable trust owned Deere.
