NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "We're entering a no-trading zone next week," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Friday.

He said it's impossible to make money during earnings season, when the news break too fast and leaves no time for the homework that leads to wise investment decisions. Cramer told viewers to listen and learn, but keep their powder dry.

Among the many companies Cramer said he'll be watching next week will be Alcoa (AA). Cramer said he's curious to hear about this company's energy costs.

In banking, Cramer said he's interested in JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Bank of America (BAC), two stocks which he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS .

Cramer said JPMorgan remains his favorite, but he expects both to see slightly stronger quarters. Also on Cramer's watch list, First Horizon (FHN), which he called among the best of the regionals.

In technology, Cramer said Intel (INTC) and Google (GOOG) are the stocks to watch. He said Intel is still cheap, and Google needs to update us on their outlook for China.

Other notable companies reporting next week, according to Cramer, include Yum! Brands (YUM), PPG Industries (PPG) and General Electric (GE), all of which will provide reads on the health of their sectors.

Finally, Cramer said he'll be paying attention to CSX (CSX) to hear if the railroad is shipping more metallurgical coal. If so, Cramer said he'd pick up more Walter Energy (WLT) up to $100 a share.
