Markets on Friday were mixed before moving higher.

General Electric (GE - Get Report)  shares fell as weakness in the company's power unit took its toll on Q2 results.

Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report)  shares gained after reporting better-than-expected fiscal fourth-quarter earnings as its cloud business soared.

Jim Cramer: Expect Domino's to Come Roaring Back

"You can sell Domino's (DPZ - Get Report)  on that slight same store miss. But I think you would be missing something really huge: the company owned up to the weakness in international right at the top of the call and then the CEO, Ritch Allison, didn't dodge it at all when I asked him about it on Mad Money," writes TheStreet's Jim Cramer.

"That, to me, is a sign that the Allison era is going to be a chip off the old Pat Doyle block," Cramer observes.

Here Are 3 Strong Dollar Plays

Real Money Pro columnist Ed Ponsi says that "from a technical perspective, President Trump's comments yesterday on Fed policy came at an inflection point in the U.S. Dollar Index ($DXY). The greenback was trading at its highest level in a year and appeared ready to break out of an inverted head and shoulders pattern (L-H-R). This is a huge version of the pattern that has formed over the past eight months, and it projects a substantial gain to the 100 area."

"There are numerous ways to play a strong dollar," Ponsi points out.

How I Invest In Biotech Stocks

"We are just past the halfway point of the trading year. It has been a decent one for investors so far, especially in comparison to Europe and China, but not nearly as good as 2017 to this point. The small biotech sector has performed well despite what has been a somewhat lackluster M&A market. Small and mid-cap biotech stocks have risen in the mid-teens this year," says Real Money Pro columnist Bret Jensen.

"It does seem an appropriate time to review two of the key 'rules of the road' when investing in this highly volatile space," Jensen adds.
