Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Next Week's Game Plan (Final)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "The week leading up to Thanksgiving is usually an up week for stocks," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Friday.

As a result, he encouraged viewers to use the opportunity to pick up a few good earners at bargain prices.

Cramer said he's looking for good things from Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) when it reports after the close on Monday. But, he said, the stock has run up ahead of the quarter, so he'd wait to buy in after they report. "No matter how good the quarter, they're likely to sell off anyway," he said.

Likewise with J. Crew (JCG), a stock Cramer called the best retailer out there. He said that so many investors believe in this company that it's almost surely going to sell off after it reports on Tuesday. Cramer said he'd be a buyer on any weakness.

Cramer also said he'd be a buyer of agriculture equipment giant John Deere (DE), along with Heinz (HNZ). Both of these stocks, he said, should benefit from a global recovery and a weaker dollar.

Tanker company Frontline (FRO) also reports next week. Cramer said he would not be a buyer, but would instead just listen to the commentary on the company's conference call.

Finally, Cramer said as Congress debates health care next week, the negative headlines will likely hurt Wellpoint (WLP), and he'd be a buyer of that name on any weakness as we feels the stock will see $60 a share.
