NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- With just about every industry coming up short in the earnings department, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Friday that he's advising caution. The data are not encouraging, he said, but there's still a steady drumbeat of investors expecting a Federal Reserve interest rate hike when what's really needed is another rate cut.
Cramer's game plan for next week's trading begins over the weekend, with Greece. If a deal can be reached, that would be good; if not, be prepared for more pressure on the markets.
Must Read: Warren Buffett's Top 10 Dividend StocksOn Monday, Cramer's eyes turn to Humana (HUM), which shot up 20% on rumors of a potential sale. Also on Monday, PVH (PVH) reports and should afford investors an OK risk reward. Next, on Tuesday, it's Dollar General (DG) and Medtronic (MDT) reporting. Cramer expects a bad headline number but a positive outlook for Dollar General and a surprise to the upside for Medtronic. Wednesday brings Brown Forman (BF.B), which has been red-hot, and an analyst meeting for FireEye (FEYE), a major player in the red-hot cyber security sector. Then, on Thursday, J.M. Smucker (SJM) reports, along with Verifone (PAY) and chipmaker Ciena (CIEN). Cramer is a fan of Smucker and Verifone for the long term, but told viewers to be careful with Ciena, which has run up ahead of the quarter. Finally, on Friday, it's the all-powerful non-farm payroll report. Cramer said nothing moves the markets more than this statistic. If it's strong the market will sink, but if it's weaker the Fed may be on hold, which would be a boon for stocks.
