Cramer's game plan: Yellen could take everything down next week

The S&P 500 managed to post a four-week losing streak on Friday. Unfortunately, Jim Cramer anticipates that oil and the Fed will keep dragging on the index next week.

"We have got a heavy week of earnings with some very compelling opportunities, but if Yellen makes us feel like we are facing two or three rate hikes, then I think we finish down for a fifth straight week, and that is just plain ugly," the "Mad Money" host said.

With this in mind, Cramer reviewed the stocks and events on his radar next week:

Monday: Eurozone Data
The data will give investors a sense of how Europe is doing. Cramer is interested in this information because the dollar has been strong for four straight weeks, and a strong dollar is bad news to U.S. industrial companies.

"My biggest worry is that if we get subpar data from across the Atlantic, we are going to hear about European Central Bank action to bring down the euro versus the dollar," Cramer said.

Tuesday: AutoZone, Toll Brothers, Best Buy, Intuit
Toll Brothers: With housing fresh on his mind, Cramer suspects that Toll Brothers could be in the blast zone of the rate-hike discussions. He recommended staying on the sidelines.

Intuit: Cramer thinks it could be crushing H&R Block when it comes to taxes. He said to buy half a position before the quarter. It is exactly the kind of stock that works in this environment.

Wednesday: Costco, Tiffany, Williams-Sonoma, PVH Corp, Popeyes
Costco: Cramer is concerned that the quarter will be weak because it was tied up with American Express, and next quarter will be Visa. However, he thinks it could be a chance to buy.

Thursday: Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Burlington Stores, Ulta Salon, GameStop, Signet Jewelers, Abercrombie, Palo Alto Networks
The theme of Thursday is the retailers that offer bargains. Cramer is concerned that the pair of dollar stores could face some reinvigorated competition from Wal-Mart, but he has his eye on Dollar Tree following its merger with Family Dollar.

Palo Alto: After speaking with the CEO of Cyberark this week, Cramer thinks there could be more big-time bank hacking out there happening. He expects Palo Alto to deliver a great number, but since the group has been out of favor lately, he's not sure if Wall Street will care.

Friday: Janet Yellen Speaks
Historically, the Friday before a holiday is quiet. But things could be different when Janet Yellen speaks, though there have been several Fed speakers all fighting for the microphone to share their opinion on a rate hike this week.

"The only voice I care about is Yellen's. She is the head coach and the rest of these people should show more respect, talk less and toe the line. We don't need endless viewpoints," Cramer said.
