NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- Next week once again hinges on Europe, Jim Cramer told
"Mad Money" viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. Cramer said if the European leaders can come up with any sort of resolution, nothing else will matter. But if they don't, the markets just may give back all their gains from this week.
On Monday, Cramer said, he'll be listening to news from
Texas Instruments(TXN). All three will provide a gauge on tech spending, but only Ciena is likely to have anything positive to say.
Michael Kors(KORS) and
Biogen Idec(BIIB). Cramer said Juniper is cheap but could guide still lower. Michael Kors will offer insight on the American consumer but this stock remains a battleground, said Cramer. Biogen Idec will likely have good things to say.
Then on Wednesday it's time for
Dell(DELL), which will likely offer lackluster results, and Senate testimony from
J.P. Morgan Chase(JPM). Cramer said that J.P. Morgan would be the stock to buy on a resolution in Europe, but otherwise take a pass.
Thursday's highlights include news from supermarket
Pier 1 Imports(PIR), along with oil driller
Apache(APA) and clothing giant
VF Corp.(VFC). Cramer said he'd take
Whole Foods(WFM) over Kroger, but he expects good things from Pier 1. Apache and VF remain hotly contested stocks and while both companies may have positive things to say, it likely won't matter.
Cramer's bottom line: Keep an eye on Europe and be prepared to give up some gains.
In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer once again spoke with David Demers, CEO of
Westport Innovations(WPRT - Get Report), a stock that had fallen 50% from its highs only to rocket higher by 34% this week on news of an agreement to build natural gas engines in partnership with
Demers said the deal with Caterpillar is a validation of what Westport has been saying for years, that natural gas can be a cleaner, cheaper fuel than imported oil and diesel fuel. He said that it really shouldn't come as a surprise that large users of energy are interested in American natural gas.
