NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- "Investors who have waited and waited for a great time to buy
Apple(AAPL) will get their chance next week," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Friday.
Apple was just one of the many stocks Cramer highlighted in his game plan for next week's trading.
Cramer said the analysts will likely be disappointed with Apple's iPhone shipment numbers when it reports on Monday, as a little-known production glitch kept numbers lower-than-expected. He said that glitch was taken care of at the end of the third quarter, setting up Apple for a big fourth quarter.
He said that will make Tuesday the perfect time to buy Apple, after the disappointment, but still before
AT&T(T)sings the iPhone's praises when it reports on Thursday.
In the aerospace sector, Cramer said any further
Boeing(BA) Dreamliner delays will create weakness and a buying opportunity, for that stock on Wednesday.
United Technologies(UTX) will also report next week, and that too is a great stock to gauge the health of the sector.
In commercial real estate, several names will be reporting, including
M&T Bank(MNT) and
Huntington Bancshares(HBAN). These companies will tell us the health of that group, said Cramer.
Cramer also noted
Wells Fargo(WFC), a stock which he owns for his charitable trust,
Action Alerts PLUS
, as another name to watch. He said the Wells often disappoints the analysts because it doesn't offer a Q&A period on its conference call. Cramer said he'd be a buyer on that weakness.

Still other stocks like
Caterpillar(CAT), will offer guidance on the economic recovery, said Cramer, as will steelmaker
Nucor(NUE), which reports on Thursday.
Cramer said investors need to just watch these names and learn from what's said and the reaction of the stocks.
