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

NEW YORK (TheStreet) --"Europe's leaders actually did something worth while this week," Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers on Friday.

He said with the positive news out of Europe, he's keeping his threat level assessment at DEFCON 3 as he prepares for next week's trading.

Cramer said that on Monday he'll be watching the IPOs of Michael Kors and social gaming network Zynga. He said both should be bought, but only on the IPO and not in the open market. After they debut, they should be sold. Cramer said that Zynga may even be strong enough to lift rival Electronic Arts (ERTS).

For Tuesday, Cramer said the Federal Reserve meeting will have his attention, as will the outlook from General Electric (GE), which now yields 4%. He said that Best Buy (BBY) also reports, but that stock remains in secular decline and should not be bought.

Then on Wednesday, Cramer recommended both Broadcom (BRCM) and Avnet (AVT), two stocks with low expectations that should have bottomed.

Thursday brings a slew of news from market mover FedEx (FDX), along with Pier 1 Imports (PIR), Accenture (ACN), Honeywell (HON), Research In Motion (RIMM) and Adobe (ADBE). Cramer was bullish on Pier 1, Accenture and Honeywell, but said that it's too early for new products from Adobe to matter and Research In Motion remains a weak hold at best.

Finally for Friday, Cramer said Darden Restaurants (DRI) reports, and while the company has a great dividend yield, management appears to have lost its way and needs to outline a serious turnaround plan.
