NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- It's time to wipe the slate clean, earnings season is upon us, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money TV show viewers Friday, as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. Cramer said starting next week, stocks will only move higher if companies can beat on the top and bottom lines and raise guidance for the rest of the year.
On Monday, Cramer said he'll be watching for news from the Farnborough Airshow, one of the few times a year when Boeing (BA) and Airbus give investors an update on their order book. Expect to hear good things from Boeing.
Tuesday, it's earnings from JPMorgan Chase (JPM), a stock which Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, along with Intel (INTC) and Yahoo! (YHOO). Cramer said JPMorgan will likely have good things to say, as he expects from Intel. As for Yahoo!, investors will be looking to hear updates on the upcoming Alibaba IPO.Wednesday brings earnings from Bank of America (BAC), another Action Alerts PLUS name, and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP). Cramer said he wants Bank of America to just deliver a good, clean quarter with no mistakes, no restatements and no new lawsuits. If they can do that, this stock will have a chance to head higher. As for Kinder, Cramer said he wants to hear if oil is headed below $100 a barrel. If so, that's good news for the transports and retail. For Thursday, it's Snap-on Tools (SNA) and PPG (PPG) reporting, two stocks Cramer said are buys, along with Google (GOOGL), an Action Alerts PLUS holding that Cramer likes for the long haul, and IBM (IBM), a stock Cramer said could go either way. Finally, on Friday, it's General Electric (GE), yet another Action Alerts PLUS position, and Honeywell (HON) in the spotlight. Cramer said he's hoping both these companies offer plans to reignite growth and boost dividends to spur their stocks.
