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

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- In the heat of earnings season, it's important to stop, look and listen, Jim Cramer reminded "Mad Money" viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading.

Cramer said it'll be a pleasure to finally start focusing on companies again after focusing for far too long on Cyprus and the sequester.

Monday starts the week with Citigroup (C) and Cramer said he'll be listening for how the company's new CEO is streamlining operations and reigning in their aggressive expansion plans.

On Tuesday, Cramer said he'll be listening to Coca-Cola (KO), a stock he said is just OK, along with Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , and Intel (INTC). Cramer said he'd buy more J&J and would consider Intel on any weakness.

Turning to Wednesday, it's Core Labs (CLB), Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP) and an analyst day for Gap Stores (GPS). Cramer said he's a buyer of Core Labs after it reports and is anxious to hear the outlooks for Kinder and Gap.

Thursday brings Union Pacific (UNP), one of Cramer's favorite rail plays, along with Microsoft (MSFT), Google (GOOG) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). Cramer said he'd buy Microsoft under $27 a share as its dividend will provide a cushion at that level, but would use deep in the money calls to play Google and Chipotle.

Finally on Friday, it's a big day, with General Electric (GE), another Action Alerts PLUS name, along with Honeywell (HON), Kimberly-Clark (KMB), McDonald's (MCD) and Under Armour (UA). Cramer said all of these names have been soaring but should have good stories to tell next week.

Executive Decision: Don Wood

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer once again sat down with Don Wood, president and CEO of Federal Realty Trust (FRT), a retail REIT at its 52-week high as it surged to a 94.9% occupancy rate. Federal Realty currently yields 2.6%.

Wood made it clear the ups and downs of monthly retail sales don't translate into ups and downs for the retail landlord. He said almost all of his tenants are in it for the long haul with 20-year leases, and if a tenant wants to get out early it pays for the privilege. Wood said location continues to drive the company's business, and in many markets demand still exceeds supply.
