Did you miss last night's "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are Jim Cramer's top takeaways for next week's trading.
Cramer said when Baxter International(BAX) - Get Report spun off its drug division last year as Baxalta (BXLT) it was a big win for shareholders. In fact, the day after Baxalta began trading on its own, the company was in talks to be acquired.
Where does Cramer see the next merger opportunities coming from? He suggested Coca-Cola(KO) - Get Report should buy Whitewave to give itself relevance in the natural and organic space. He also suggested American Express should buy PayPal to make itself relevant again in the online payment space.
Cramer said he's so confident that both PayPal and Whitewave could be acquired, he owns both stocks for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS.
Starbucks(SBUX) - Get Report and General Electric(GE) - Get Report : The markets may be difficult, but Cramer said he'd be a buyer of both Starbucks and General Electric on any continued market-induced weakness. Starbucks will report earnings on Thursday and GE on Friday, but Cramer said he's a fan of both companies over the long term.
