Jim 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) -- This market just doesn't know when to quit, Jim Cramer said on "Mad Money" Friday. That's why Cramer's game plan for next week's trading includes a lot of bulls.

On Monday, Cramer said, all eyes will be on Apple (AAPL), a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , and Herbalife (HLF). Cramer said things should be looking up at Apple with margins expanding, while Herbalife remains an activist investor battleground.

Tuesday brings Yelp (YELP), LinkedIn (LNKD) and Gilead Sciences (GILD). Cramer said Yelp needs to raise more money and he'd love to hear of a 3:1 stock split from LinkedIn. He expressed concern for Gilead, however, noting that even good news may be ignored by the markets.

Wednesday sees earnings from Facebook (FB), another Action Alerts PLUS holding, along with Starbucks (SBUX) and General Motors (GM). Cramer said he'd take some profits in Facebook, but would be a buyer of Starbucks on weakness and GM at current levels.

Then on Thursday, Exxon Mobil (XOM) and First Solar (FSLR) take center stage. Cramer said Exxon will announce nothing special, but First Solar could deliver an upside surprise. Cramer advised buying Noble Energy (NBL), another Action Alerts PLUS holding, on any Exxon weakness.

Finally, on Friday Chevron (CVX) reports and Cramer said he'd be a buyer of this oil giant on any weakness.

Executive Decision: Chuck Bunch

In his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Chuck Bunch, chairman and CEO of PPG (PPG), which recently delivered an earnings beat of 12 cents a share on a 17% rise in revenue. Shares of PPG are up 25% since Cramer last spoke with Bunch in April.

Bunch said PPG has been focused on increasing productivity in Europe for the past few years, which has led to record operating earnings in the region. He said any improvement in Europe will now be a huge driver for the company going forward. When asked whether a turn is indeed at hand in Europe, Bunch said that PPG is seeing improvements in the U.K. as well as in Germany, but southern Europe is still slowly turning positive.
