Get ready for the week with Jim Cramer's game plan from Friday's episode of Mad Money.

We're entering the most confusing part of earnings season, Jim Cramer told his viewers, as he laid out his game plan for the coming week's trading.

Cramer said he'll be listening to Newell Brands (NWL) - Get Newell Brands Inc. (NWL) Report on Monday to learn more about that company's turnaround efforts. He was bullish on Marriott (MAR) - Get Marriott International, Inc. (MAR) Report , Zillow (Z) - Get Zillow Group, Inc. Class C Report  and Etsy (ETSY) - Get Etsy, Inc. Report , all of which also report on Monday. But the biggest upside surprise may come from refiner Andeavor (ANDV)

Tuesday sees earnings from Emerson Electric (EMR) - Get Emerson Electric Co. Report , which will likely deliver an upside surprise that will be tempers from tariff fears. Walt Disney Co. (DIS) - Get Walt Disney Company Report will also likely deliver stellar numbers that might finally put to rest worries over ESPN subscriber losses.

Next, on Wednesday, we'll hear from Keurig Dr. Pepper  (KDP) - Get Keurig Dr Pepper Inc. Report , CVS Health (CVS) - Get CVS Health Corporation Report  and Occidental Petroleum (OXY) - Get Occidental Petroleum Corporation Report . Cramer was bullish on Occidental and CVS, but said he'd reserve judgement on the newly-merged Keurig.

Thursday brings earnings from two interesting companies, Dropbox (DBX) - Get Dropbox, Inc. Class A Report and Viacom (VIA.B) . Cramer said he liked Dropbox's subscription model and felt that Viacom's assets were being under appreciated.

And for Friday, Cramer said Wall Street will get the number that worries him the most, the Consumer Price Index. Will this be the moment inflation starts to pick up? If so, it may be a tough end to the week.
