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

Search Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" trading recommendations using our exclusive "Mad Money" Stock Screener.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Next week, it will be almost impossible to make money, Jim Cramer told "Mad Money" viewers Friday, but that doesn't mean investors can't listen and learn and prepare their next moves.

Cramer reminded viewers that the heart of earnings season is the most difficult time to trade, which is why he recommends sitting on the sidelines until after companies report.

So what will Cramer be listening to? He said that on Monday, he'll be listening to PPG (PPG) to see how that company is faring as worldwide growth returns and commodity costs remain low.

For Tuesday, Cramer said Lennar (LEN) will provide an outlook on housing in the U.S., while on Wednesday JPMorgan Chase (JPM) will offer a look into the banking world. Cramer said he'd be a buyer of eBay (EBAY) on any weakness after that company reports on Wednesday, and would also pounce on Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP).

Thursday brings more financials, including Bank of America (BAC - Get Report), Citigroup (C) and Capital One (COF). Cramer said he likes Bank of America in the long term but would buy Capital One on weakness.

As for Intel (INTC), which also reports on Thursday, Cramer said he prefers Action Alerts PLUS holding Broadcom (BRCM).

Finally, on Friday it's General Electric (GE) taking center stage, along with Johnson Controls (JCI) and Schlumberger (SLB). Cramer said GE, another Action Alerts PLUS name, should be able to beat expectations and he hopes to hear good things from Johnson Controls and Schlumberger over the long term.

Speculation Friday

For "Speculation Friday," Cramer featured sports apparel maker Quiksilver (ZQK), telling viewers that timing is everything, and in this case the timing may be all wrong. Quiksilver has been in the crosshairs of the Wall Street analysts, with Goldman Sachs recently upgrading the stock while Piper Jaffray downgraded the company.

Cramer said Quiksilver has been a wild ride, with the stock soaring in 2005 only to find itself near bankruptcy in 2008. The company does have a new CEO as of today however, something that Goldman noted as a big plus for the company. But Piper noted that while we don't yet have holiday sales data for Quiksilver, the evidence from those retailers that sell Quiksilver merchandise has not been promising.
