Jim Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Here's Next Week's Game Plan

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Stop moaning about poor earnings, Jim Cramer commanded his Mad Money viewers Friday. There are still plenty of companies doing well this quarter and investors need to take advantage of the opportunities when they see them.

Cramer's game plan for next week's trading starts on Monday with the quintessential Apple (AAPL), a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS. After rising 15% over the past three months, he urges you to continue to own, not trade, Apple.

Next, on Tuesday, Cramer will be watching Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), along with UPS (UPS), T-Mobile (TMUS), Kraft Foods (KRFT) and Twitter (TWTR), another Action Alerts PLUS name. Cramer is bullish on all these names, except UPS, where he said another bad quarter would send that company to his wall of shame.

For Wednesday, Cramer's attention turns to Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), where he expects a strong quarter, Spirit Airlines (SAVE), his favorite among the group, GrubHub (GRUB), an out-of-favor stock he thinks could surprise to the upside, and Marriott (MAR), another solid performer.

Thursday brings earnings from just Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Columbia Sportswear (COLM). Cramer remains a fan of the stealth tech play that is Columbia, and is also curious to hear Exxon's take on the future of oil prices.

Finally, on Friday, CVS Health (CVS) reports earnings. Cramer said buying call options would be a good way to play this drugstore giant. Also on Friday is Chevron (CVX), a stock investors can use to compare and contrast against Exxon's world view.

Executive Decision: David Demshur

For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer welcomed David Demshur, chairman, president and CEO of Core Labs (CLB - Get Report), the scientist of the oil patch with a stock that's up 40% in just the past three months.

Demshur explained that when it comes to Core Labs' reservoir mapping services, these are multi-year, multi-billion-dollar projects that don't simply go away based on the short-term fluctuations in oil prices. That's how Core Labs continues to post strong, consistent earnings.

Turning to U.S. oil production, Demshur said the current output of 9.2 million barrels a day will likely fall below nine million barrels by the end of 2015, with much of that decline stemming from shale wells, which deplete more rapidly than traditional wells.

That will lead to a V-shaped recovery for oil prices, Demshur predicted, with West Texas oil prices returning to $70 a barrel.

Cramer said if Demshur is bullish on oil, then investors should be, too.
