That's why Cramer's game plan for next week's trading starts off with Apple (AAPL), a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, and its rumored bid for the privately held Beats. Cramer said he's curious to see if the rumors are true because a streaming business could reinvigorate the iTunes music business.
On Tuesday Cramer said he'll be watching Fossil (FOSL) and Take-Two Interactive (TTWO). He said Fossil's accessory business is full of risks but also lots of rewards. Cramer also felt that Take-Two still had some upside left.Wednesday brings John Deere (DE), SodaStream (SODA) and Cisco (CSCO). Cramer said he'd be a seller of Deere after they report, as management's conservative nature almost always knocks the stock lower. He was not a fan of SodaStream and was also cautious about Cisco. Thursday is retail day, with Kohl's (KSS), Walmart (WMT) and J.C. Penney (JCP), among others, reporting. Cramer said he'd buy into Walmart ahead of its earnings. Finally, on Friday, Cramer said all eyes will be on the latest housing starts number. Too low, and interest rates could finally fall to a level low enough to spark demand, he concluded.
