NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Today's bounce-back rally tells us something, Jim Cramer said on Mad Money Friday. It tells us that there are still plenty of people who want into this market but are being smart about it and waiting for better prices. That's why Cramer's game plan for next week's trading looks for more opportunities, especially ones made better by any additional volatility.
On Monday, Cramer said he'll be anxious to hear if Apple (AAPL) , a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, has any update on international iPhone sales. He'll also be listening to the Ford (F) analyst meeting to hear the latest from that company's new CEO.

On Tuesday, Cramer will be watching Walgreens (WAG) , the once-loved but now-hated drugstore chain that is once again an Action Alerts PLUS stock. Cramer said he's looking beyond the near term and buying in for 2015 and beyond.
Wednesday brings a new biotech initial public offering, Calithera Biosciences. Cramer said he'll be waiting to hear more about this deal.
Finally, on Friday, it's time for the non-farm payroll numbers again, a metric Cramer said will have a big impact on the stock market, as it always does.
Should investors have expected more from Nike (NKE) when shares sold off with the broader markets yesterday? Cramer said it appears so because the company delivered stunning results after the close, beating on both revenue and earnings with an expansion in gross margins. That news sent shares up a quick 12% as the outlook for Nike remains impressive.
Before the results, Cramer noted that investors had gotten very negative on Nike, expecting its boost from the World Cup to have faded along with a weaker China, a fading Western Europe and a lukewarm emerging market.
But Nike remains a very efficient operator, Cramer said, and company management noted that the brands, products, operations and marketing were all firing during the quarter, more than making up for pockets of weakness around the globe.
