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

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- As earnings season kicks into high gear next week, Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show to "don't buy, just listen" to the companies that are reporting.

He said trading during earnings season is just too risky, and too many things can go wrong.

Among the companies reporting, Cramer said he'll be listening to railroad CSX (CSX) on Tuesday for news on increased ethanol blends and also demand from China. Also on Tuesday, is tech bellwether Intel (INTC), a stock which Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS . Cramer said he wants to hear if price cuts are stimulating demand.

On Wednesday, Cramer said he'll be watching JPMorgan Chase (JPM), another Action Alerts PLUS name. He said he's hoping for word on a reinstatement of JPMorgan's dividend and clarity on mortgage loan losses. "Don't buy without answers to those questions," he cautioned.

On Thursday, Google (GOOG) reports, and Cramer said he's hoping to hear how the company plans to monetize its Android cell phone OS. He said Google is currently cheap at just one-time its growth rate, and he said he'd consider trading it, using deep-in-the- money call options if the stock gets hit.

Finally on Friday, General Electric (GE) reports, and Cramer said he wants to hear how all the company's divisions are doing, from oil service to aerospace to health care.

In the IPO market, Cramer said be on the lookout for Tower International, an auto parts maker coming out of a restructuring that's set to trade under the ticker TOWR. Cramer said he'd try and get in on the IPO if possible.
