(Corrects story originally published May 3 to say Weyerheuser's shareholder meeting is Friday. The company reported earnings April 26.) NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- No single number is more important to this stock market than the monthly employment number, 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 while it will be hard to replicate this week's rally to new highs, the markets may still have the wind at its back starting on Saturday. That's because on Saturday, the Berkshire Hathaway ( BRK.B) annual meeting will commence and Cramer said Warren Buffett will likely have a lot of positive things to say. That's why he feels Saturday will be the launchpad for that stock's next move higher. Turning to Monday, both Anadarko Petroleum ( APC) and EOG Resources ( EOG) will be reporting, and Cramer said he expects to hear good things from both companies. Tuesday brings earnings from Whole Foods ( WFM) and Walt Disney ( DIS). Cramer noted that Whole Foods may see some pressure in the short term, but he's still a fan of the company in the longer term. He was also upbeat on Disney, saying he hopes the stock gets crushed so investors can buy in on the cheap. On Wednesday it's Continental Resources ( CLR) and Heckman ( HEK) in the spotlight. Cramer said Continental should shine, while Heckman may be sluggish this quarter due to skepticism over natural gas. On Thursday Dish Network ( DISH) and Priceline.com ( PCLN) will be reporting. Cramer noted that Dish's play for Sprint Nextel ( S) will make for a colorful conference call, while Priceline will likely deliver another stellar quarter. He said investors need to be careful with this wild trader. Finally, on Friday Weyerhaeuser ( WY), a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust,
Cramer's Shopping ListSome stocks just don't reflect that things are getting better, Cramer told viewers. So he presented them with a shopping list of names that can be bought the next time the market sells off. Cramer said the financials are among the undervalued, with names including Citigroup ( C), once a $500 stock, now trading for a scant $46 a share despite being a far better company than it was at $500. He also gave the nod to JPMorgan Chase ( JPM) and Wells Fargo ( WFC), along with KeyCorp ( KEY) and First Horizon ( FHN)
Also making the shopping list, mortgage insurers such as Radian ( RDN) and Genworth Financial ( GNW), along with Hartford Financial ( HIG), an Action Alerts PLUS name. Then there's tech, said Cramer, with Microsoft ( MSFT) trading at just 12 times earnings and EMC ( EMC) also seeing low valuations. In the auto group, Cramer said both Ford ( F) and General Motors ( GM) will be buoyed by a recovering Europe. In still other sectors, Cramer liked ConocoPhillips ( COP) and Schlumberger ( SLB) in the oil patch, and US Airways ( LCC) as the "best in show" airline. He also remained bullish on Eaton ( ETN), General Electric ( GE) and Caterpillar ( CAT) among the industrial stocks.
Cramer 'Likes' Facebook's CallWhich company had the single best earnings call this quarter? Cramer said it was Facebook ( FB), another Action Alert holding and a company that saw a 38% jump in revenue this quarter. Cramer said practically every metric that matters was sharply higher at Facebook, which is now seeing accelerating, not decelerating, revenue growth. He said the bear case against this stock is falling apart as the company is not only growing its mobile traffic, but monetizing it. All of these efforts, he said, will turn into huge profits once the company is done investing in its infrastructure and growth. Just how big is mobile at Facebook? Cramer said it represented 0% of revenue when the company came public but it now tops out at 30%, a huge secular shift as people abandon desktop computers for tablets and smartphones. Facebook plans to spend $1.8 billion on capital expenditures, noted Cramer, adding there simply aren't many stocks like Facebook out there. With that, shares are only up 6% for the year and trade at 36 times earnings estimates, which are far too low. Cramer was also bullish on LinkedIn ( LNKD), a company he said will also flourish over the longer term once investors stop focusing on present day shortfalls.
Lightning RoundIn the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment ( PEI). Cramer was bearish on Potash ( POT)
Mad MailIn the "Mad Mail" viewer feedback segment, Cramer followed up on some stocks that stumped him during earlier shows.
He said Trius Therapeutics ( TSRX) is highly speculative but he thinks the risk-reward makes it worth a try. Cramer said he's still bullish on Standard Pacific ( SPF) but said Tesla Motors ( TSLA) is still far too hard to understand or opine on.
