NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Worries abound in this market but that doesn't mean that everything is a sell, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money TV show viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading.
Cramer said he'll be watching both Priceline.com (PCLN) and Ventas (VTR) - Get Ventas, Inc. Report when it reports on Monday. He said Priceline always gets hit after a report, and that's the opportunity to buy. Meanwhile, Ventas is a solid REIT with a 4.6% yield that makes for an excellent bond replacement investment.
Next, on Tuesday it's Kate Spade (KATE) and paint-maker Valspar (VAL) - Get Valaris PLC Class A Report on the radar. Cramer said he's not overstaying his welcome in Kate because handbags are a cutthroat business. Valspar, however, should make for a good trade, he continued.
Wednesday brings Macy's (M) - Get Macy's Inc Report, a stock Cramer said he's not abandoning even though expectations are running high. He was also bullish on Cisco Systems (CSCO) - Get Cisco Systems, Inc. Report but was worried about John Deere (DE) - Get Deere & Company Report, telling viewers to use any morning spike in the stock to sell.
Then, on Thursday, it's retail day with Kohl's (KSS) - Get Kohl's Corporation (KSS) Report, Wal-Mart (WMT) - Get Walmart Inc. Report, Nordstrom (JWN) - Get Nordstrom, Inc. (JWN) Report and J.C. Penney (JCP) - Get J. C. Penney Company, Inc. Report reporting. Cramer said lower gas prices and stronger employment should help both Wal-Mart, but Nordstrom is an outright buy, as is J.C. Penney after he featured it earlier this week as part of "Chart Week."
Executive Decision: Jon Oringer
For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Jon Oringer, CEO of Shutterstock (SSTK) - Get Shutterstock, Inc. Report, the online media marketplace that reported a 3-cents-a-share earnings beat when it reported Thursday on better-than-expected revenue. Shutterstock also offered healthy guidance, but saw its shares down 2.9% with the broader markets.
Oringer had a lot of positive things to say about the quarter. He touted Shutterstock's recent partnerships with both Facebook (FB) - Get Facebook, Inc. Class A Report and Salesforce.com (CRM) - Get salesforce.com, inc. Report as two important relationships for the future. He also noted the introduction of music licensing as another big growth driver.
Shutterstock now offers 60,000 music tracks for license, but Oringer said that number will grow as the service opens up to more contributors.
When asked why customers choose Shutterstock over the competition, Oringer explained that Shutterstock offers a simple subscription model and clear and easy licensing that customers love. Whether they need images, video or now music for their Web site or project, they know Shutterstock will have what they need and allow them to license it quickly, he continued.
Cramer said stocks like Shutterstock are once again coming back into favor and he likes the company's outlook.
Appetite for Restaurant Stocks?
There are two kinds of investors buying into the restaurant stocks, Cramer told viewers, those looking for yield and those looking for for growth.
That explains how a stock like McDonald's (MCD) - Get McDonald's Corporation (MCD) Report could post a 2.5% decline in global same-store sales and not have its shares fall off a cliff, Cramer said. McDonald's has a 3.5% yield.
But when it comes to growth, customers are increasingly choosing healthy and organic options, which explains why the best same-store sales comes from Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) - Get Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. Report, a chain that is practically waging war on everything McDonald's sells.
Other growth in the group is coming from anything Mexican, Cramer continued, as evidenced by Fiesta Restaurant Group (FRGI) - Get Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc. Report, El Pollo Loco (LOCO) - Get El Pollo Loco Holdings Inc Report and the Mexican offerings from Jack in the Box (JACK) - Get Jack in the Box Inc. Report, all of which also offer fresh and organic options when compared to the flailing Taco Bell, part of Yum! Brands (YUM) - Get Yum! Brands, Inc. (YUM) Report.
Both of these investment themes are working, Cramer concluded. But make no mistake, they're working for completely different reasons.
Chart Week Finale
For the finale of "Chart Week," Cramer sat down with colleague Carolyn Boroden, the "Fibonacci Queen," to discuss the concepts of symmetry and measured moves using several companies' weekly stock charts.
Boroden explained that when she looks at a chart she'll often find the same size price movements over and over again, called symmetry. Add that to moves that happen over the same duration and you have measured moves.
Boroden was also bullish on Amgen (AMGN) - Get Amgen Inc. Report, which has seen several declines equal in price and time since 2007. The stock's most recent decline could see a snap back to $134 a share, Boroden said.
Boroden also noted similar moves in stocks such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) - Get Exxon Mobil Corporation Report, Schlumberger (SLB) - Get Schlumberger NV Report and General Mills (GIS) - Get General Mills, Inc. (GIS) Report. In each case, the stock repeats the same pattern over and over again.
In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Rite Aid (RAD) - Get Rite Aid Corporation Report, VMware (VMW) - Get VMware, Inc. Class A Report, EOG Resources (EOG) - Get EOG Resources, Inc. (EOG) Report, Intel (INTC) - Get Intel Corporation (INTC) Report and Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) - Get Skyworks Solutions, Inc. Report.
Cramer was bearish on Mobileye (MBLY) , Tekmira Pharmaceuticals (TKMR) , Taiwan Semiconductor (TSM) - Get Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. Sponsored ADR Report and Gogo (GOGO) - Get Gogo Inc. Report.
Executive Decision: Terry Gregg
In his second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Terry Gregg, CEO of DexCom (DXCM) - Get DexCom, Inc. Report, the glucose monitoring device maker that's seen its shares rally 219% since Cramer first got behind the company in 2011 and 39% since he last checked in with Gregg this past May.
Gregg showed off his company's newest offering, a watch that not only tells you the time but also your glucose level and its trend in real-time, thanks to a wireless connection to a implantable device. Gregg said that real-time monitoring is vital for patients with diabetes, as low blood sugar can have cognitive implications.
When asked when Medicare will begin covering devices like what DexCom offers, Gregg said he can't say when but the trend is moving in that direction and he's confident that reimbursements will happen.
Cramer said that DexCom continues to make incredible devices for people with diabetes and he continues to recommend the stock.
