The past three weeks have been crazy on the stock market, even for a veteran like Jim Cramer. The volatility has become the main focus of earnings season instead of earnings.
However, instead of going off the rails worrying about the big swings, Cramer wants to use the recent volatility to buy individual stocks that have nothing to do with these issues when the moment strikes.
"Let's accept the fact that we still have to listen to what individual companies have to say, and when the market calms down, we can figure out what's so darned cheap based on what they told us that it will make sense to do some buying," the "Mad Money" host said.
With this in mind, Cramer shared the stocks he will be watching next week:
Tuesday: Hormel, Zoetis
Hormel: Cramer wants to be careful with this stock, because it's been on a tear lately and is close to all-time highs.
Zoetis: Cramer reminds investors to consider that what matters right now is not just what the company is or how it does — but who owns it. This stock has been in the grips of sellers and short sellers.
Wednesday: Dr. Pepper Snapple, Priceline, T-Mobile, Noble Energy, Barrick Gold
T-Mobile & Priceline: These stocks have been hammered lately, which makes Cramer think they could be due for a bounce. He recommended waiting after the quarter to buy Priceline in case it gets slammed and to buy T-Mobile at current prices.

Thursday: Wal-Mart, Six Flags
Wal-Mart: Be ready for action. The company reset expectations so low in its last quarter that it could actually beat the numbers this time around.
"I think that if this market can take Wal-Mart down to the point where it is giving you a 4-percent yield, then you need to be ready to buy it, and at 5 percent I would back up the truck," Cramer said.
Six Flags: For those investors looking for income, Cramer thinks this could be one of the finest plays on lower gasoline and stay-cations.
Friday: Deere, VF Corp
VF Corp: Cramer is intrigued. The stock tends to trade down after it reports, and he thinks there could be an opportunity if it trades down to the point where it yields 3 percent.
"Notice how I mentioned yield over and over again? That is because Treasury rates have gotten so low that they are almost uninvestible," Cramer said.
So bond market alternatives and low prices are the name of the game for Cramer next week. The key is to use market weakness to buy stocks that pay to wait for better times.
