NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Skepticism is no longer a workable strategy," Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers on Friday, as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading.

Cramer said that after today's jobs numbers, it's clear that the U.S. economy has improved dramatically and the stock market might be on a roll.

On Monday, Cramer said he'll be watching Yum Brands ( YUM), a stock which he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , for an update on China's economy and also any plans to split up some of the company's franchises. Cramer told viewers to be careful with Yum since the stock could turn south if either news is not what investors are expecting.

Tuesday brings the earnings from Coca Cola ( KO), Buffalo Wild Wings ( BWLD), Panera Bread ( PNRA) and Walt Disney ( DIS). Cramer said investors may trim positions in Coke, but he remains bullish on both Buffalo Wild Wings and Panera. Disney might be tricky, said Cramer, so he advised waiting until after the earnings before buying in.

Then on Wednesday its Ralph Lauren ( RL), Cisco ( CSCO) and Whole Foods ( WFM) that will be reporting. Cramer said he expects great things from all three companies.

For Thursday, Cramer said that he's bullish on Dunkin Brands ( DNKN) and Noble Energy ( NBL), but he would ring the register now on Lufkin Industries ( LUFK), as he put that company in the penalty box last quarter.

Finally on Friday, Cramer said to stay away from Arch Coal ( ACI) as the coal bear market continues. He said he's also worried about NYSE Euronext ( NYX) and needs to here if that company has a Plan B after its failed merger attempt.

In the IPO market, Cramer said investors should try and get in on the Caesar's Entertainment IPO, but he would be an immediate seller of the stock in the open market as there are far better casinos to own.
