Or, if you've grown tired of Alibaba, in Cramer's weekly game plan, he said AutoZone (AZO) could provide a money making opportunity as soon as Monday, when the company reports earnings. "AutoZone has a history of reporting, then selling off, and rallying again. Given there are so many older cars on the road that need Autozone, I'd buy the dip."

Of course, that's hardly the only stock that Cramer will be watching next week. He has at least nine other ideas on how to make money. Find out about them all!

From the company's colorful pillows and throws to its beautiful furniture and more, Cramer said, "Not that long ago, Pier 1 (PIR) looked like one of the greatest turnaround stories of the era. But after a string of missed numbers, Cramer turned to CEO Alex Smith for further insights. "We were challenged by soft store traffic and declines in our merchandise margins," explained Smith. "But we have a great confidence in our (future). Our merchandise and store execution this holiday season is going to be great."

In the Lightning Round Cramer said he remained a buyer of Yahoo! (YHOO) as well as First Niagara Financial Group (FNFG).

Also Cramer drew parallels between two major developments in the tech sector this week. Looking at the decision from Larry Ellison to retire from his post at Oracle (ORCL), Cramer said it "represents the twilight of a different way of computing, the traditional non-cloud style of software that Ellison pioneered." Conversely, the decision by SAP (SAP) to acquire Concur (CNQR), "embraces the new world of cloud computing."

"You know what? To be totally frank, it was time for a change," Cramer said.
