What follows is Cramer's "Game Plan" for the week of Monday, Oct. 10.
TUESDAY, OCT. 11
Alcoa is scheduled to report its quarterly earnings results after the closing bell. This stock has been a nightmare in the second half, Cramer said. It has no dividend support and has endured endless number cuts. The estimates are now so low, Cramer thinks it may be able to meet them. Its guidance likely won't be as bullish as he'd like, but Cramer thinks anything other than a huge loss could send the stock higher.
WEDNESDAY, OCT. 12
Soft drink maker Pepsico will deliver its quarterly results before the opening bell. It may have recently faced several number cuts, but Cramer notes it's one of the premier worldwide growth companies. In addition, it boasts a 3.5 percent dividend yield. He's a buyer.
THURSDAY, OCT. 13
JPMorgan Chase will release its earnings results Thursday morning. Cramer would like CEO Jamie Dimon to talk about growth and a big dividend boost.
Safeway will also announce its quarterly numbers before the opening bell. Cramer doesn’t expect much from the retail store operator. After all, Safeway is facing tough competition from rivals Target , Wal-Mart , Costco and Whole Foods .
"They're getting it from all sides. I can't see how you can own Safeway other than the fact that the street hates it so much," Cramer said. "But the street also hated SuperValu and that's been very right to hate."
After the closing bell, Google will post its earnings results. There is a growing perception that Google has a spending problem, Cramer said. Investors are also worried about increased competition from Facebook. Cramer is interested to hear company executives address both of these concerns. That said, he expects the Internet giant to post a good number.
FRIDAY, OCT. 14
Toy maker Mattel will report before Friday's open. Cramer is interested to learn about its future prospects. At current levels, he thinks it could be a good speculative play with a 3.4 percent dividend yield.
