NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Worries abound in this market but that doesn't mean that everything is a sell, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money TV show viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading.
Cramer said he'll be watching both Priceline.com (PCLN) and Ventas (VTR) when it reports on Monday. He said Priceline always gets hit after a report, and that's the opportunity to buy. Meanwhile, Ventas is a solid REIT with a 4.6% yield that makes for an excellent bond replacement investment.

Cramer said he's not overstaying his welcome in Kate because handbags are a cutthroat business. Valspar, however, should make for a good trade, he continued. Wednesday brings Macy's (M), a stock Cramer said he's not abandoning even though expectations are running high. He was also bullish on Cisco Systems (CSCO) but was worried about John Deere (DE), telling viewers to use any morning spike in the stock to sell. Then, on Thursday, it's retail day with Kohl's (KSS), Wal-Mart (WMT), Nordstrom (JWN) and J.C. Penney (JCP) reporting. Cramer said lower gas prices and stronger employment should help both Wal-Mart, but Nordstrom is an outright buy, as is J.C. Penney after he featured it earlier this week as part of "Chart Week." Finally on Friday, Cramer said he's still bullish on Estee Lauder (EL) and would be a buyer when they report.
Executive Decision: Jon OringerFor his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Jon Oringer, CEO of Shutterstock (SSTK), the online media marketplace that reported a 3-cents-a-share earnings beat when it reported Thursday on better-than-expected revenue. Shutterstock also offered healthy guidance, but saw its shares down 2.9% with the broader markets. Oringer had a lot of positive things to say about the quarter. He touted Shutterstock's recent partnerships with both Facebook (FB) and Salesforce.com (CRM) as two important relationships for the future. He also noted the introduction of music licensing as another big growth driver. Shutterstock now offers 60,000 music tracks for license, but Oringer said that number will grow as the service opens up to more contributors. When asked why customers choose Shutterstock over the competition, Oringer explained that Shutterstock offers a simple subscription model and clear and easy licensing that customers love. Whether they need images, video or now music for their Web site or project, they know Shutterstock will have what they need and allow them to license it quickly, he continued.
