The IPO market has been white hot. But if you're not strategic it could burn you, badly.

Find out what Cramer has to say about some of the most anticipated IPOs in the week ahead.


Cramer said he's not particularly enthusiastic about the .

"We know that the real estate market has cooled off since the spike in rates, and while Lennar just told us that the home building business is doing much better than we thought, this may not be the ideal moment for a real estate brokerage play like RE/MAX to be coming public."

However, Cramer added a caveat.

"I do think Re/Max is worth watching, if only to see which way the market jumps—it could be an important tell for everything associated with residential real estate."

Burlington Coat Factory

Again, Cramer said he wasn't particularly enthused.

"I just don't have enough conviction in Burlington Coat Factory to give it my blessing here. Granted, this clothing chain has a powerful turnaround story the apparel stocks have been very much out of favor lately.

Potbelly Sandwich Works

The is something that Cramer is excited about.

"It will trade under the symbol PBPB and is expected to price next Thursday night. Potbelly has 280 locations in 18 states, and while the name doesn't exactly scream healthy eating, this company has a powerful regional to national growth story. We know the market has been favoring those," he said.

"The deal is expected to price at between $9 and $11, and I think it's worth getting a piece of," he added. "In fact I bless it all the way up to $15."

And if you bought or on Cramer's IPO recommendation a few weeks back he says it's now time to ring the register.

"I've got nothing against these companies, but their stocks have rallied tremendously in a very short period of time and you don't want to get greedy."

Also, if you follow the IPO market very closely Cramer also said, "Looking further into the future, keep an eye out for Veracyte in healthcare, and Criteo, Veeva Systems, Chegg, Voxeljet and CommScope in tech."

"I know how hard it is to get in on these, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't flag them," he added. "If you get a little stock on the deal, it can go a long way toward giving your portfolio a good 2013."
