NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- When the euphoria surrounding Greece fades, be prepared to buy the stocks of companies that have great earnings, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Friday. Cramer said today's Greek-inspired rally won't last forever but, fortunately, there are a lot of great stocks to buy when it ends.

Starting on Monday, Cramer said, he'll be watching Dish Network (DISH) , Magnum Hunter (MHR) and Express Scripts (ESRX) . He expects positive news from all three companies.

Next, on Tuesday, it's earnings from Domino's Pizza (DPZ) , along with Macy's (M) , Toll Brothers (TOL) and Home Depot (HD) . Cramer is also bullish on these names, along with Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) and restaurant chain Cracker Barrel (CBRL) .

The earnings continue on Wednesday with L Brands (LB) , DineEquity (DIN) , Target (TGT) and (CRM) reporting. Cramer said he'd buy Target on a pullback but the other three can be bought right where they are.

Then, on Thursday, more earnings, this time from gift card giant Blackhawk (HAWK) , J.C. Penney (JCP) , Monster Beverage (MNST) and Ross Stores (ROST) . Cramer said Blackhawk is a huge opportunity, as are Monster and Ross. He remained cautious on Penney's ability to deliver.

Finally, on Friday, it's NRG Energy (NRG) , a company that loves solar energy and profits from it.

Stick With Beauty

When investing in a stock, stick with the beautiful and ignore the ugly, Cramer told viewers as he compared beauty giants Estee Lauder (EL) and Avon Products (AVP) .

Cramer said while both these companies strive to make their customers beautiful, Estee Lauder delivered a gorgeous quarter while Avon was downright hideous. It's no wonder shares of Lauder are up 178% over the past fiver years while shares of Avon have plummeted 72% over the same time period.

Put simply, Estee Lauder knows how to deliver. The company posted an 8-cents-a-share earnings beat with gross margins at all-time highs. The company's mid-tier brands, including MAC, grew exceptionally well, even in areas such as China, Brazil and Turkey.

Meanwhile, Avon missed estimates by 5 cents a share when it last reported with sales declining a sizable 12%. Compounding the company's problems, Avon's number of active sales reps also fell by 4%.

Cramer said he'd be a buyer of Estee Lauder but would avoid the value trap that is Avon.

Twitter Is a Gold Mine

Is Twitter (TWTR) a misunderstood gold mine or the next in a long line of Internet fads? Cramer said he thinks Twitter is worth a fortune, which is why he owns shares for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS.

Cramer explained that only Twitter can act as your own personal news service, allowing you to follow people, companies and events that interest you. Whether it's news, sports or politics, Twitter allows everyone to stay up to date with current events like no other site can.

So what about all those skeptics who claim Twitter will never be able to monetize its 140-character content? Cramer said the skeptics said the same thing about Facebook (FB) , another Action Alerts PLUS holding, and Facebook was able to figure it out. Twitter will figure it out as well, he concluded.

Off the Tape

In his "Off the Tape" segment, Cramer spoke with Josh Tetrick, founder and CEO of the privately held Hampton Creek foods, makers of plant-based protein products.

Tetrick was excited about his company's new partnership with the Compass Group, a food service management company that provides food to large corporate accounts. He said Compass will now be providing Hampton Creek cookies, mayonnaise, biscuits, pasta and more to the likes of Google (GOOGL) and others.

When asked about his company's continued growth, Tetrick said people want food that tastes good and is affordable but is also aligned with health and wellness. He said healthy eating is more than a trend, it's a new way of thinking for both customers and companies.

Cramer said the Hampton Creek story is still an exciting one.

Lightning Round

In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Facebook (FB) , Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) , Progressive (PGR) , Travelers Companies (TRV) , Kinder Morgan (KMI) and Watsco (WSO) .

Cramer was bearish on Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) , Compugen (CGEN) and Ship Finance International (SFL) .

Off the Tape

In a second "Off The Tape" segment, Cramer sat down with Ryan Feit, founder and CEO of the privately held SeedInvest, a firm that allows ordinary investors to invest in start-up companies alongside venture capitalists.

Feit explained that traditionally only venture capitalists were able to invest in early-stage companies. However, with SeedInvest, investors can now invest with no fees. Feit said SeedInvest believes in fairness and transparency and only charges the companies a small percentage of the capital they raise.

Among some of the companies SeedInvest is currently working with is Virtuix, a virtual reality startup, and Knightscope, a company working on robotic security guards.

Cramer said SeedInvest is offering investors a unique opportunity. When securities laws change later this year, everyone will be able to use services like SeedInvest.
