NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "If you own the right stocks, they will rally," Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. Cramer said that investors need to do their homework and watch the earnings so they can be ready to buy the companies that are succeeding the next time Europe trashes our markets. On Monday, Cramer told viewers to watch out for Priceline.com ( PCLN), as this company needs to post at least $9.62 per share of earnings and guide upwards in order to head higher. "Priceline needs to win or go home," he said. For Tuesday, Cramer will be listening to AmeriGas Partners ( APU) for a read on the propane group. He said if this stock falters, all propane stocks will be vulnerable. "Be careful," warned Cramer. Also on Tuesday, watchmaker Fossil ( FOSL). Cramer said this company has a history of getting crushed after earnings and if the stock falls below $82, watch out. Wednesday brings General Motors ( GM), a stock which Cramer owns for his charitable trust,
Value of HomeworkIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer opined on the multitude of companies that have simply blown away the numbers this earnings season. If particular, he noted a Goldman Sachs ( GS) analyst who said that his downgrade of Starbucks ( SBUX) may have been "premature." Cramer said the Starbucks story should have run out of gas by now, but hasn't. The company is opening new stores at a fever pitch, yet isn't having any hiccups in its expansion plans. The company also has a multitude of competitors, yet Starbucks was able to post same-store sales growth of 10%. Cramer said while the media is out to scare the public and the analysts are looking at the global picture instead of the micro one, smart investors that did their homework can see these companies coming from a mile away.
A Speculative Tech PlayWhen it comes to augmenting your paycheck, Cramer said that stocks are still the only game in town. That's why for Speculation Friday, Cramer highlighted Allot Communications ( ALLT), a tiny Israeli tech company. Cramer explained that Allot helps wireless carriers manage their bandwidth by optimizing data usage on their networks. In short, Allot helps cell phone companies charge more for better data services. Despite doing business in Europe, Allot is seeing no slowdown in that region and was able to post a four-cent-a share earnings beat on a 37% boost in revenues. The company also has $2.54 a share in cash and zero debt. Allot competes with the likes of Cisco, yet you wouldn't know it, said Cramer, as its growing like a weed with a 33% growth rate. Allot also plays in a very high margin business, helping its cash flow position. Cramer said that Allot is small and has already had a big run up from $9 to $15 a share. He told investors to wait for the company's upcoming secondary offering to buy the bulk of their position and to use limit orders to protect themselves from paying too much.
