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

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.

Executive Decision: David Demers

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer once again spoke with David Demers, CEO of Westport Innovations (WPRT), a company leading the charge to develop natural gas engines. Shares of Westport are up 12% since Cramer last spoke with Demers on Nov. 12.

Demers said Westport is actively working with railroads to test natural gas locomotives, a "compelling opportunity" for the industry. Since a lot of natural gas is already being carried by rail, natural gas-powered locomotives wouldn't need to stop for refueling, he noted, something that could have lasting effects on how railroads operate.

When asked about natural gas for 18-wheelers, Demers said partner Cummins (CMI) will begin selling the widely-anticipated 12-liter truck engine in April. He said it will be a controlled release until about August, after which the engines will be readily available for any company that wants one.
