NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- It was a dramatic and nauseating week, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. Cramer said with the minefield that is earnings season upon us, investors should expect the volatility to continue.

Cramer said he'll be watching Citigroup (C) when it reports on Monday. No matter the results, the stock will likely get hammered since it offers no dividend protection.

Then, on Tuesday, it's Coca-Cola (KO) and Intel (INTC) reporting. Cramer said the markets have been in love with both of these names as Coke offers value and Intel offers yield.

Wednesday brings earnings from IBM (IBM) and Google (GOOG), two stocks Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS. In the battle that is old versus new tech, Cramer expects IBM to fare well while Google may be under pressure as its perceived as expensive.

Also on Wednesday is another Action Alerts PLUS name, Bank of America (BAC). Cramer said by Wednesday he expects Bank of America to catch a bottom and would be a buyer on weakness ahead of the quarter.

Then, on Thursday, the last day of trading in a holiday-shortened week, both McDonald's (MCD) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), along with General Electric (GE), another Action Alerts PLUS name, and Pepsico (PEP) report.

Cramer noted the markets love McDonald's, even though Chipotle has the better business and better growth. Look for a battle to ensue over both Chipotle and Pepsico, he said, while GE may also see some selling as this stock is getting "tough to own."

Remember Microsoft?

Does Twitter (TWTR) hold the key to the market? Cramer said back in the old days he was always asked for that one stock that seemed to determine which way the market was headed. When asked that same question earlier today, Cramer said his answer was Microsoft (MSFT).
