NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "This market is poised to run through the end of the year," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Friday, as he outlined his game plan for next week's trading.

Cramer said the market feels terrific and with stocks starting to actually respond to good news, the opportunities are aplenty. On Monday, Cramer said he'll be listening to Darden Restaurants ( DRI) for a read on consumer confidence. Cramer remains bullish on the restaurants, including Chipotle Mexican Grill ( CMG) and Yum! Brands ( YUM).

Also on Monday, contract manufacturer Jabil Circuits ( JBL) reports, along with Adobe ( ADBE) and Paychex ( PAYX). Cramer said Jabil will provide an outlook for the entire tech sector, while Paychex offers a look into the overall economy and the job market. After getting hammered last quarter, Cramer said he's looking for better results from Adobe.

On Tuesday, Cramer said footwear players Nike ( NKE) and Finish Line ( FINL) are on his radar. Nike remains Cramer's favorite, but Finish Line should post better results, if it was able to correct inventory issues last quarter. Also on Tuesday, Carmax ( KMX) reports, which is one of the 10 best-performing stocks over the past decade.

Finally on Wednesday, Cramer said Walgreens ( WAG) and Bed Bath and Beyond ( BBBY) top his watch list. Cramer said he's bullish on both companies.

Speculation Friday

For "Speculation Friday," Cramer recommended the little-known technology company known as InterDigital ( IDCC), an orphan stock with no major analyst coverage.

InterDigital is an intellectual property powerhouse, with over 17,000 patents under its wings, mainly in the smart phone and telecommunications space. Cramer explained that InterDigital receives royalties on 50% of all third-generation, or 3G, smart phones sold. The company makes 40 cents on every iPhone or 3G iPad sold, for example.

With fourth-generation devices just beginning to hit store shelves, the future looks bright for InterDigital, which has technology patents for about 20% of all 4G devices, and is looking to acquire more. 4G device shipments should reach 100 million by 2014.

Cramer said InterDigital is a speculative name, mainly because if companies refuse to pay royalties to InterDigital, lawsuits ensue, and it's always difficult to game litigation. But with $13 per share of cash on the books, Cramer said InterDigital is cheap at just 13 times earnings, especially given the company's 18% growth rate and its newly announce 1% dividend.
