NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Don't try to game earnings next week, just stop, look and listen," were Jim Cramer's cautionary words to the viewers of his "Mad Money".

He told viewers that trading during the flurry of earnings news is one of the quickest ways to lose money. With that in mind, Cramer laid out his game plan for next week's trading.

On Monday, Cramer said he'll be watching Anadarko Petroleum ( APC) and Chesapeake Energy ( CHK) to see if these companies are able to produce more oil into the booming oil rally. He'll also be watching payroll service Automatic Data Processing ( ADP) to find out what's really going on with employment.

Cramer said he'll also be watching Herbalife ( HLF) and Avon ( AVP) when they report next week. Cramer said he expects great things from Herbalife, but Avon is facing a make-or-break moment for CEO Andrea Yung, whom Cramer has said should resign.

Also on Tuesday, Clorox ( CLX) and Las Vegas Sands ( LVS), two more companies Cramer said he'll be watching closely, while on Wednesday it will be Botox-maker Allergan ( AGN), MGM Resorts ( MGM) and Whole Foods ( WFMI). Cramer said investors shouldn't be shy about taking profits in Whole Foods.

Later in the week, Cramer said General Motors ( GM), a stock which he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , will be a stock to watch, along with Fluor ( FLR) and video streaming purveyor Limelight Networks ( LLNW).

Finally, Cramer said the little watched Weight Watchers ( WTW) deserves some attention, along with Chinese IPOs Renren, trading under the ticker RENN, and NetQin, which will begin trading as NQ. Cramer said investors should consider the IPOs only if they can get in on the original deal. He would not be a trader in the open market.
