NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- Get ready for the
Twitter deal and get ready to do some buying, Jim Cramer told
"Mad Money" viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading.
Cramer said if history serves, markets that are up 20% or more for the year tend to keep on rallying. So investors need to be ready to pounce when opportunities arise.
That's why on Monday Cramer will be watching three oil and gas producers --
Carrizo Oil & Gas(CRZO) and
Pioneer Natural Resources(PXD). Any of these stocks could rally on increased production, but also fall if the price of oil dips on the day, Cramer noted.
Tuesday brings earnings from
CVS Caremark(CVS). Cramer said Tesla could rally on any overseas news, but he'd sit on the sidelines for Regeneron. He expects good numbers for AOL and CVS.
Then, on Wednesday, it's
Whole Foods Markets(WFM), a stock where the analysts are always too critical, along with
Cimarex Energy(XEC) and
SolarCity(SCTY). Cramer said he'd buy Cimarex if Monday's oil stocks do well and would buy SolarCity if Tesla does well.
On Thursday, shares of Twitter will be priced. Cramer said investors shouldn't expect to get in on this red-hot IPO but he feels shares are worth a valuation up to $20 billion. Also on Thursday,
Walt Disney(DIS), another stock worth buying on any weakness.
Finally, on Friday, it's non-farm payroll numbers. Cramer said he doesn't expect the market to react positively to this news, so investors should be prepared for weakness.
For "Speculation Friday," Cramer highlighted
Swift Energy(SFY), a tiny oil and gas producer whose shares fell from a high of $45 a share to $30 last year to a scant $12.95 a share today.
Cramer explained that Swift was once a pure play on natural gas and natural gas liquids, two areas of the oil and gas market that have been under tremendous pressure for the past few years. But like so many of its competitors, Swift is now making the transition away from natural gas and towards the lucrative oil side of the business, a move that's "better late than never," said Cramer.
