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

Search Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" trading recommendations using our exclusive "Mad Money" Stock Screener.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- It's hard to keep a good market down, Jim Cramer announced to his Mad Money viewers Friday, especially when that market is fraught with mergers and acquisitions. That's why Cramer's game plan for next week's trading continues to keep one eye on earnings and the other on the next possible takeover targets.

The week begins after the holiday on Tuesday with AutoZone (AZO) and cloud-computing giant Workday (WDAY). Cramer said AutoZone should be bought, especially on any post-earnings weakness, while Workday should also be strong and offer positive pin action for other cloud stocks.

Wednesday is jam-packed with earnings from Michael Kors (KORS), a stock Cramer doesn't like, and DSW (DSW), which he does. Palo Alto Networks (PANW) remains a favorite as are Costco (COST) and Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen (PLKI). Also on Wednesday, an investor meeting for Humana (HUM) that should buoy other health care stocks including Cigna (CI) and Unitedhealth Group (UNH).

Then, on Thursday, it's Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), a stock Cramer doesn't like, down 27% for the year. Semiconductor maker Avago (AVGO), on the other hand, should post a fabulous quarter.

Finally, on Friday it's another retailer, Big Lots (BIG), in the spotlight. Cramer said he hasn't been impressed with this company, even though it represents a decent risk/reward at these prices.

Trust FireEye

Can losing money actually be a good thing? It can if you're FireEye (FEYE - Get Report) and your mission is cyber security.

That was Cramer's takeaway from last night's interview with FireEye's CEO. FireEye has been losing money quarter after quarter, but it's also spending more and more to meet the huge demand and not cede any ground to its competitors.

In order to get the best, most trustworthy people, you need to pay up, and only FireEye has been certified by the Department of Homeland Security to offer the highest level of liability protection for its clients. That means if your company uses FireEye, you're indemnified from lawsuits if a hack does occur.

Cramer remains a fan of all the cyber security companies, including Palo Alto Networks, CyberArc (CYBR) and Fortinet (FTNT), but only FireEye has a partnership with Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and is willing to spend whatever it takes to stay ahead of the hackers and their competition.
