Trump Entertainment


is a stock that could be a good trade and a good investment, Jim Cramer told viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Friday.

The stock, which Cramer first recommended a year ago, is up a "cool 30%," Cramer said. And he expects it to go up even more.

On Nov. 14, the company is going to make a presentation in front of the Philadelphia Gaming Board to open up a slot parlor in Philadelphia, Cramer said.

It should get state approval, but even a favorable public sentiment should send the stock up.

If it does get approval, Trump could "shoot up" $4, he said.

Trump has become a "worthy casino stock," Cramer continued. It has put money back into its casinos by remodeling them, and it recently reported an upside surprise, he said.

Everywhere the casino company remodels, growth is coming back, Cramer said. "Renovations are beginning to attract high-quality players."

In addition, for years Atlantic City, where all the Trump casinos are located, "was a dingy environment," but now the city is starting to turn around.

With Jim Perry, Trump's CEO, putting on a great execution, with the turn in Atlantic City and with the possibility of the Philadelphia casino being built, Trump could be worth at least $32, Cramer said. Trump closed at $22.05 on Friday.

Cramer suggested getting into the stock before the company's meeting with the Gaming Board in November because "that's when the momentum should build."

"Buy it before Philadelphia Gaming Board decides whether it should open a slot parlor in Philadelphia," he said.

However, if market players can't buy Trump at a low price, he urged them not to buy it.

Remember that winter is "weary" in Atlantic City, Cramer said, so people might have an opportunity to buy the stock in January -- if they miss the November and December trade.

MasterCard Commander

There are certain stocks that can make market players 50% of their gains, while other stocks in their portfolio "languish" Cramer said.


(MSFT) - Get Microsoft Corporation Report

was one of the stocks that always brought people's portfolios higher. Cramer believes he has found another stock which should do the same --


(MA) - Get Mastercard Incorporated Class A Report


Although MasterCard has already gone up dramatically, Cramer said he has suggested other stocks that have had big runs as well, such as

Research In Motion




(CSCO) - Get Cisco Systems, Inc. Report




People might have missed "40-odd points" in MasterCard, but he believes that this stock still has "major upside."

"The IPO was priced way, way too low, so forget that it has doubled," Cramer told viewers. "The stock should have opened at $60, maybe $70."

Moreover, MasterCard is an "irreplaceable franchise," he said. "When a company gets "demutualized," it becomes a knocking opportunity. That's what has happened at MasterCard."

Plus, not only does it have a "big opportunity in China," but also it "blew out" its earnings estimates with two major upside surprises, Cramer said.

MasterCard has "pure organic growth" and "earnings power," he said. "I think this goes to $150."

MasterCard closed at $89.20 on Friday.

Game Plan

Going over his game plan for next week, Cramer told viewers to buy



ahead of its Tuesday report.

He said he also likes


(TGT) - Get Target Corporation Report

, as Warren Buffett is a buyer of this stock.

Instead of


(GPS) - Get Gap, Inc. Report

, Cramer said he likes

Men's Wearhouse



Tween Brands



Moving on,

Marvell Technology

(MRVL) - Get Marvell Technology, Inc. Report

is going to report a bad quarter next week, but it should give positive year-over-year numbers, which is why Cramer has been buying it for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS, he said.

Regarding the drug stocks, he said the Street got "panicked" about price controls, which could cap profits.

"When institutions get really scared, millions and millions of drug-stock shares get sold," Cramer said.

And, as he believes that traders are not finished dumping these stocks, he suggested not getting in until there is an opening that "looks good and stays good."

"Wait for the institutions to finish selling," Cramer advised. "And when the stocks open up and go up for the rest of the day, you will know all the inventory has been cleaned out."

Wait until these stocks lift at the market's opening and lift all day, he stressed. Then it will be OK to buy.

Cramer welcomed Jonah Shacknai,

Medicis Pharmaceuticals'


CEO, to the show and asked him to speak about his products.

The company just launched an antibiotic, Solodyn, last summer, the first antibiotic approved for moderate-to-severe acne, and "the market is loving it," Shacknai responded.

In addition, this week Medicis got approval from the Food and Drug Administration for Ziana, another acne drug which "could also be a blockbuster," Cramer said.

Also, Shacknai said he hopes to see the approval of Prolane, a third acne drug, soon.

Cramer called Medicis a "bull story between now and the end of year."
