NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Expect another big week for earnings, Jim Cramer told "Mad Money" Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading.
Cramer said that with so many corporate report cards coming in, the markets might not even have time to notice Europe's woes for a while.
On Monday, Cramer said he'll be watching Eaton (ETN), a stock he owns for his charitable trust Action Alerts PLUS. Also reporting is oil service giant Halliburton (HAL). Cramer said he's sticking with Eaton's 4% yield and bets the market's being too bearish on Halliburton as well.Tuesday brings earnings from DuPont (DD), Biogen Idec (BIIB), Domino's (DPZ), Panera Bread (PNRA), Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) and the mighty Apple (AAPL), also an Action Alerts PLUS holding. Cramer was bullish on Biogen Idec, Domino's and Apple, saying of Apple to "own it, don't trade it." However, Cramer expects Panera and Wild Wings to sell off like Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) and other growth names. He is hoping DuPont follows in PPG's (PPG) footsteps and announces a plan to unlock value. Another record-setting earnings day on Wednesday with Caterpillar (CAT), Wyndham Worldwide (WYN), Whole Foods Market (WFM), Kimberly-Clark (KMB), Dunkin Brands (DNKN), Hershey (HSY) and International Paper (IP). Cramer was bullish on Wyndham, Whole Foods and Kimberly-Clark. He said that International Paper is a buy under $30 as share and both Dunkin and Hershey should be bought on any weakness. He was worried about Caterpillar. The week ends on a slower note with 3M (MMM) reporting on Thursday followed by Weyerhaeuser (WY), also an Action Alerts PLUS holding, Chevron (CVX) and drug maker Merck (MRK) on Friday. Cramer said he was worried about 3M and was not a fan of Merck, but was bullish on Chevron, a stock he said was cheap, and on Weyerhaeuser with the coming strength in housing.
Not the End of the WorldNot every big decline in the markets signals the end of the world. That's why no matter what the crisis of the day, it's never a good idea to sell everything, as not all stocks are equally good or equally bad, Cramer said. When bad news hits, Cramer told investors to look at the stocks in their portfolios and rate them on a simple scale. Stocks you rate No. 1, for example, could be the ones you believe in and buy more of as they head lower. Stocks in the No. 2 camp could be those that could be sold if you needed to raise cash. Meanwhile, the No. 3 stocks could be those that are expendable and should be sold now.
