NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "I like it when people are being hired and the economy is doing well," Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers Friday, as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. Cramer said while the naysayers continue to worry about Fed tightening, the smart investors are betting on companies that have growing earnings.
That's why on Monday, Cramer said he'll be listening to Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), but not for that company's earnings but for what they have to say about Nike (NKE) and Under Armour (UA). He'll also be listening to Heckmann (HEK) to get an update on hydraulic fracking in America's shale fields.
On Tuesday, it's Costco (COST) earnings, and Cramer said he doesn't expect this stock to go down much, even if it disappoints. Also on Tuesday, Chevron (CVX) has an analyst day and Cramer's hoping to hear plans for spinoffs, as many other big oils have done.
Wednesday brings Starwood Hotels & Resorts (HOT), one of Cramer's favorite travel and leisure stocks.Then on Thursday, Diana Shipping (DSX), Ulta Salon (ULTA) and United Technologies (UTX) report. Cramer said he's keeping an eye on Diana as dry bulk rates creep higher. He's concerned about performance at Ulta, but would be a buyer of United Technologies ahead of its earnings.
