Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Next Week's Game Plan

Smith & Wesson (SWHC): "That was a blowout quarter. I should have been behind this one."

Polycom (PLCM): "No, that's way too hard."

National Semiconductor (NSM): "That's been a real win and I like it a lot."

Barnes & Noble (BKS): "Ouch. I think that stock can go to $13 or $14 but I don't like the book business because of Amazon.com (AMZN)."

Rentech Nitrogen (RNF): "I think you made the right move. I want you to stick with it."

News Corp (NWSA): "The split-up is so good. I like it. "

Priceline.com (PCLN): "I don't want to give up on it. I want to stick with Priceline."

eBay (EBAY): "I think you view eBay as a financial company. It's Visa (V), MasterCard (MA) and PayPal. Those are the big three."

Opening the Mail

In the "Mad Mail" viewer feedback segment, Cramer followed up on funeral home operator StoneMor Partners (STON), a stock the stumped him on an earlier show. He said this company's 10% yield is a red flag and he'd go with Stewart Enterprises (STEI).

Cramer was also not a fan of Tangoe (TNGO), a company that helps businesses manage their telecommunications costs. Cramer said this name is also controversial. Why own a battleground stock when there are so many non-controversial names out there? he asked.

When asked about Dunkin Brands (DNKN), Cramer said this stock remains stuck in the mud and is not going anywhere. He was more bullish on Heckmann (HEK), however, calling the company a terrific speculation.

When asked about whether Union Pacific (UNP) may split, Cramer said, "I don't care." He likes the company no matter the share price. Finally, he said travel service Kayak (KYAK) is a great service, but not a stock he wants to own.

No Huddle Offense

In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer sounded off on the decision to drop Kraft (KFT) in favor of United Healthcare (UNH) as part of the venerable Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Cramer called the move a golden opportunity wasted, as the Dow already has too much health care exposure. He asked, why not bring the average into the 21st century by adding an Apple (AAPL), a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, or a Google (GOOG) or Amazon.com?
