The stock market continues to be crazy, Jim Cramer admitted to his Mad Money viewers Friday, but underneath it all, corporate earnings have actually been pretty good. That's why Cramer's game plan for next week continues to focus on earnings as well as big dividend yields.
After the long Presidents Day weekend, Cramer said he'll be watching Hormel Foods (HRL - Get Report) and animal health giant Zoetis (ZTS - Get Report) when they report on Tuesday. He warned that investors should be careful with Hormel, as it trades at a 52-week high and at 30 times earnings, but noted that the company is terrific. As for Zoetis, Cramer cautioned that large hedge funds could be sellers, so investors should steer clear.
Next, on Wednesday, Cramer said he's a fan of Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS - Get Report) , as well as Priceline (PCLN - Get Report) and T-Mobile US (TMUS - Get Report) , but would only buy on weakness. Cramer will also be listening to Noble Energy (NBL) for an update on oil production.
Off the Tape
In his "Off the Tape" segment, Cramer sat down with Manny Stul, co-CEO of the Australian-based and privately held Moose Toys, best known for its Shopkins line of girls' collectibles.
Stul said Moose is now the sixth-largest toy maker in America and the only foreign company outside of Lego to ever break the top 10. He said he wants Moose to move into the number five spot this year.
When asked about going public, Stul said that right now Moose is happy being private and just focusing on its brands. Moose has also been wildly successful with its YouTube channel, which has garnered over one billion views so far.
