Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Next Week's Game Plan

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Stop, look and listen remains the strategy of the day, Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers Friday, as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. As earnings season continues in high gear, Cramer said it'll be more important than ever to read beyond the headlines.

Monday, Cramer said Citigroup (C) will be the stock that matters most as the global bank deals in many of the most difficult markets around the world.

Tuesday, it's Coca-Cola (KO), Goldman Sachs (GS), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Yahoo! (YHOO) that will be reporting.

Cramer said that while many investors are looking for a global soft goods stock like Coke, currency may hamper the company's earnings. He was bullish on Goldman, which excels in volatile market, and on J&J, which remains a favorite turnaround story. Cramer also has positive words for Yahoo!, saying that he's a huge fan of CEO Marissa Mayer.

Next, on Wednesday, Bank of America (BAC), US Bancorp (USB), IBM (IBM), Intel (INTC) and Xilinx (XLNX) take the stage. Cramer said he's worried about Bank of America and would buy Wells Fargo (WFC - Get Report), a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , instead. He would also buy US Bancorp on weakness. Cramer was not overly bullish on IBM or Intel, however, saying Xilinx will be the big winner as telco spending resumes.

Thursday's earnings include Union Pacific (UNP), UnitedHealth Group (UNH), Verizon (VZ), Google (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT). Cramer thinks Union Pacific can overcome the decline in coal, and everything continues to come up roses for UnitedHealth. He was worried about Verizon and would be a seller, but felt that both Google and Microsoft will see analyst upgrades.

Finally, on Friday, another Action Alerts PLUS name, General Electric (GE), reports, along with Schlumberger (SLB). Cramer said he want to see a dividend boost from GE, which has been giving him a headache, but would be a buyer of Schlumberger.
