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) -- Buy low, don't sell low. That was Jim Cramer's lesson for his "Mad Money" viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. Cramer said the futures have a way of taking down the entire market for no particular reason, and it's times like those when investors should be buying.

That's why Cramer predicted a big market open on Monday, but urged investors not to chase stocks higher. Wait until later in the day and prices almost always get better. As for what to buy, Cramer said he likes both AmeriGas Partners (APU) and food distributor Sysco (SYY).

On Tuesday, Cramer said, he'll be waiting for earnings from Clorox (CLX) but would be a buyer of Gilead Sciences (GILD) and Hain Celestial (HAIN).

Wednesday brings Yelp (YELP) and Twitter (TWTR) along with Walt Disney (DIS) and Merck (MRK). Cramer said he's a huge fan of Yelp and Disney, but would wait until after earnings to scoop up Merck and Twitter.

Then, on Thursday, it's Perrigo (PRGO), LinkedIn (LNKD) and OpenTable (OPEN) reporting. Cramer said he expects an upside surprise from LinkedIn, but would pick up Perrigo after it reports. As for OpenTable, Cramer called that a "wait and see" situation.

Finally, on Friday, it's the all-important non-farm payroll report hitting the news. Cramer said two bad reports in a row could undo all the gains from earlier in the week but positive news would be, well, very positive for the markets.

Executive Decision: George John

For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with George John, CEO of the online ad buying service Rocket Fuel (FUEL), which has been on a wild ride in the markets this week.

John addressed Rocket Fuel's recent volatility by explaining its IPO last year was relatively small, which has led to increased volatility. However, with the company's recent secondary offering more shares are now available and things should appear more normal from now on.
