NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Now that the big bag employment event is behind us, Jim Cramer told "Mad Money" viewers Friday he's looking forward to next week to see if earnings will confirm or refute the slightly better-than-expected numbers received today.
Cramer said Monday his game plan will kick off with the latest read on Chinese industrial production. He said most people have given up on China, so any better-than-expected number will be good news for the markets. Also on Monday, Annie's (BNNY) and Lululemon Athletica (LULU) will report. Cramer said Annie's may struggle and Lulu is rip for profit taking so he'd be cautious on both.
Tuesday brings two IPOs, Coty and Gigamon. Cramer said he'd be a buyer of either deal. He'll also be watching the Morgan Stanley (MS) conference for a read on the banking industry as well as the earnings from Ulta Salon (ULTA), another stock that worries Cramer.On Wednesday, Cramer said, he'll be all ears for PVH Corp (PVH) and Five Below (FIVE). He said PVH may be ready to roar, but expects Five Below to be under pressure. Also on Wednesday, a Piper Jaffray retail conference and news on the federal budget deficit, which may bring good news with less spending and higher taxes now in place. For Thursday, it's more employment data with the initial unemployment claims, along with earnings from Restoration Hardware (RH), a stock that's doubled since its IPO late last year. Cramer said this stock should be headed higher. Finally on Friday, it's the latest U.S. industrial production numbers. Cramer said for the rally to continue, this number has to begin climbing.
