Cramer: 9 Earnings to Watch Next Week

Friday, 4 Mar 2011 | 6:17 PM ET

Cramer revealed on Friday what quarterly earnings results he plans to monitor in the days to come.

MONDAY

Game Plan
Cramer fills you in on what your next move should be.

Ciena , a networking-gear maker, will report quarterly earnings results before Monday's opening bell. As the mobile Internet tsunami requires upgrades to the terrestrial voice networks, Ciena is experiencing increased demand for its products, Cramer said. Thanks to intellectual property bought from Nortel, Ciena is taking share from rival Cisco Systems . Cramer looks forward to hearing about how Ciena is proving its critics wrong.

TUESDAY

Brown-Forman will deliver its earnings results before Tuesday's opening bell. The Louisville, Ky.-based company produces an array of alcoholic drinks, including Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, Southern Comfort and Canadian Mist, among other brands. Being as hard liquor is a discretionary purchase, Cramer said Brown-Forman is a great read on the strength of the consumer.

Nike and Under Armour will also report earnings before the market open. Cramer likes both companies and expects each to report positive earnings results.

After the closing bell, Diamond Foods will release its results. Short interest accounts for 35 percent of the float, but Cramer is bullish on this processed and packaged goods name.

WEDNESDAY

Outside of China, Molycorp has been the single-most logical play on rare earth minerals. Rare earths are needed to make a variety of products, including electric car batteries. The Greenwood Village, Colo.-based company is scheduled to report earnings before Wednesday's opening bell. Cramer thinks it has no earnings, little revenues and a $4 billion valuation, so he wants to hear about its game plan going forward.

THURSDAY

After the close, Cramer plans on monitoring an earnings call from Clean Energy Fuels , a natural gas company based in Seal Beach, Calif. Being as there is heavy lobbies against natural gas, Cramer thinks this is a speculative play, albeit one unlikely to work until government subsidies come about.

Filtration play Pall also reports on Thursday. Cramer thinks it could be a takeover target and hopes to hear more about any possible mergers and acquisitions during its earnings call.

FRIDAY

Hibbett Sports , a sporting goods store operator, will announce its earnings before Friday's opening bell. Being as Dick's Sporting Goods has performed well lately, Cramer thinks HIBB will also have good results.
