Will the benign bull continue? That is what will be on Jim Cramer's mind during the week ahead. Frankly, the answer is complicated. A lot could happen over the weekend that could send Friday's even-keeled market off on a roller coaster ride.
First, it could depend on what happens when the G20 summit meets in Brisbane, Australia. Cramer sees this as the first time that issues like the Ukraine/Russia conflict will be brought up in an environment where several countries are represented, and he has hopes that it can be hammered out. Looking back at Cramer's 10-point checklist of what caused the market bottom in October, this was an item and it still remains open.
"Consider this G20 meeting as less of a photo op and more of a substance session. In other words, we have to care about it," Cramer said.
After the G20, all eyes will be on retailers as more retail companies report next week. Cramer sees a correlation between oil and retail, as the low cost at the gas pump is feeding cash into the retail space.
With the global economy brewing, Cramer still has his eyes on stocks next week. Here is what is on his radar:
Tyson Foods: The deal with Hillshire Brands is paying off. If Tyson reports a good number, then it will spark consolidation in this group.
Tuesday: "Days like Tuesday are why I love this business," Cramer said.
Home Depot: The "Mad Money" host expects this to be a dazzling number. He thinks new CEO Craig Menear will continue doing fabulous work. Companies like Home Depot are important because it tells investors where the extra dollars saved at the gas pump are going; this is one to watch.
Vipshop: This Chinese retailer recently split to give shareholders more liquidity, and its shares are up 192 percent for the year. Wowzer! "If they say good things then I think Alibaba will mount another charge to $120, " Cramer said.
Jack in the Box: Cramer is interested to hear what they have to say about a turnaround for their Mexican chain, Qdoba. This could send movement to other south of the border inspired food chains like Chipotle and Fiesta. "This quarter reverberates so loudly that it could move the stock of the fictional Pollo Hermanos of 'Breaking Bad' fame"
Petsmart: The worse Petsmart's quarter is, the better the stock might turn out to be because of hedge fund Jana's pressure.
Keurig Green Mountain: This is an all-time Cramer favorite. He can't wait to hear what they have to say about the Keurig Cold, which will turn out chilled drinks.
Salesforce.com: Cramer bets the numbers will be good—but if it gets hit, then it is an attractive entry point to buy the stock.

Mobileye: Used to be a favorite, but then it ran up so quickly, Cramer got cold feet. He thinks it will tell a good story, with its contract win from Tesla.
Footlocker: "Let me throw in that with the cold weather I want to buy some Deckers, and I'm all over Skechers for being real cheap here. These shoe stocks tend to trade together. I want to own them, and hopefully Nike comes down ahead of what I expect to be a terrific quarter from Footlocker. "
