What Jim Cramer Is Watching Next Week
“Mad Money” host Jim Cramer’s “Game Plan” for the week of Monday, March 12, is as follows.
MONDAY, MARCH 12
Clean Energy Fuels reports quarterly earnings after the market closes. Cramer will be watching for signs that the company will be able to build enough gas stations to make natural gas a more valuable fuel. The company has come a long way from a year ago, when their goals sounded more like pipe dreams. Now, the question is whether Clean Energy can do it quickly enough.
Urban Outfitters has cooled off from its one-time “fabulous” growth rate. Cramer said he would listen for a plan for the company, especially since the stock has been climbing in anticipation of one.
TUESDAY, MARCH 13
Anadarko holds its investor conference on Tuesday. Cramer had nothing but praise for outgoing CEO Jim Hackett. After he steps down in May, there’s a question whether the company will remain one to hold.
Chevron will unveil production figures on the heels of disappointing numbers from Exxon that sent investors packing. Cramer is looking at Chevron to know whether to stick with them or go with nimble independents like APC, EOG or Continental Resources. Listen for an unvarnished outlook.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14
Vera Bradley reports after the bell. Although the shorts on this stock were squeezed Friday, it remains to be seen whether that will happen again. Cramer is on the sidelines on this stock, but will watch it as a primer on how to handle it.
THURSDAY, MARCH 15
Ross Stores reports in the morning. Cramer called this retailer one of the greatest names around, and he expected “nothing but positives,” including more aggressive expansion and better margins on lower cotton costs.
FRIDAY, MARCH 16
Consumer Price Index numbers will be released Friday, which will provide perspective on higher energy costs — and it could turn out to be a wake-up call for the Federal Reserve and any plans it might have for printing more money. Cramer is betting that interest rates will rise and bond prices will fall.
Demandware plans its initial public offering next week and will provide a good opportunity in the cloud-computing space. Cramer likes this play, calling it a better move to buy an e-commerce company rather than their customers. Look for ticker symbol DWRE.
