NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- How will stocks fare this year, TheStreet's Jim Cramer was asked via Twitter?

In responde Cramer pointed to his Real Money article predicting equities could return as much as 14% to 16% this year. 

That doesn't mean stocks will do that well, he continued. Cramer wasn't surprised by the weakness in the first few trading days of January given that many investors were likely taking profits after the year-end spike in stock prices.

Cramer thinks investors are now waiting for Friday's nonfarm payrolls report for a buying opportunity.

Asked about Twitter (TWTR) - Get Twitter, Inc. Report, Cramer called it a "love stock" and said he cannot come up with a valuation for it. He said he's "proud" of analysts for not making up reasons to buy the stock near these levels because there are none. 

Finally, some investors asked how high Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) - Get Sirius XM Holdings, Inc. Report can trade following the buyout offer from Liberty Media (LMCA)

Cramer said SIRI could take out its 52-week high of $4.18 if the company told LMCA, its majority shareholder, that it will have to "pay up" if it wants the rest the company.
