NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- It's almost time to start buying domestic growth stocks, Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. Cramer said the markets have almost priced in the uncertainty in Ukraine and China, and U.S. restaurants and biotechs could be bought into weakness.

Cramer's week starts off Monday with Chinese property prices. He said this number needs to be in the sweet spot for the markets to view it favorably. Too high, and fears of a tightening will set in; too low, and the markets will fear the wheels are falling off the Chinese economic bus.

Tuesday brings earnings from Oracle (ORCL) and Adobe (ADBE). Cramer said if these reports send other tech stocks higher, then all is well. If not, look out.

Next, on Wednesday, it's FedEx (FDX) reporting and an analyst meeting for First Solar (FSLR). Cramer said he prefers UPS (UPS) over FedEx but FedEx provides an update on the world's economy and is worth the listen. First Solar could rally big on its presentation.

Then, on Thursday, it's housing day with home builder Lennar (LEN) reporting and existing home sales being released. Cramer said housing will be important to the health of the overall market.

Finally, on Friday, it's embattled Darden Restaurants (DRI) reporting along with high-end retailer Tiffany (TIF). Cramer said activists want a new CEO at Darden, while Tiffany will likely see no "pin action" from its earnings, no matter how good they are.

Executive Decision: Lars Bjork

For his "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Lars Bjork, CEO of Qlik Technologies (QLIK), a cloud-based provider of data analytics software. Shares of Qlik are down 18% over the past six months.

Bjork explained that Qlik's technology allows corporate users to explore their data and find answers they weren't even looking for. He said Qlik helps discover patterns and trends, helping to keep companies ahead of the market.

When asked what's driving the trend towards cloud-based analytics, Bjork said cloud-based software is fast, it's beautiful and it's device-agnostic. It puts the user in control of the experience and lets them tailor reports and dashboards that suit their individual needs.
