NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Their weakness is not our weakness," Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Friday. The U.S. economy is a lot stronger than Europe, China and Japan, and that means sticking with what's working right here in the good old USA. Cramer said he is still a fan of stocks like General Motors ( GM) , a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, along with Ross Stores ( ROST) and Celgene ( CELG) .
As for next week's trading, Cramer said that he'll be listening to Palo Alto Networks (PANW) and Workday (WDAY) when they report Monday, but unfortunately he likes the companies a lot more than the stocks, which are now both too expensive.

On Tuesday, DSW (DSW) should report a bullish quarter, but Cramer urged caution. He was also bearish on Tiffany (TIF) , which has exposure to Japan. On the bright side, Cramer had positive comments for Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Cracker Barrel (CBRL) .
Then, on Wednesday, John Deere (DE) and SeaDrill (SDRL) report. Cramer said Deere is another company that's better than its stock, while SeaDrill is just "dangerous" with new rigs coming online and oil prices falling.
What about those cheap international stocks you were considering? Cramer closed by saying that investors need to curb their enthusiasm until Europe implements actual stimulus, China starts growing again or there's resolution in Ukraine.
A Tribute to Pop
In a heartfelt tribute to his father, Ken Cramer, who passed away Wednesday at the age of 92, Cramer offered some insights on the many things Pop taught him over his lifetime.
Cramer recalled that Pop was always working, having run his own business for 50 years selling gift wrap, tape, boxes and ribbon to retailers and jewelers. When that business got too tough, Cramer said Pop "pivoted" and sold high-end doggie bags to restaurants instead, always putting the customer first. From those days, Cramer said, he learned that inventory is the bane of a retailer's existence -- always watch the inventory.
Cramer said Pop loved the stock market, loved Mad Money, loved his country, loved Eagles football and loved working out and staying active, all tenets Cramer shares.
Pop was lucid and offering stock advice right up until a few hours before he passed, his son said. He will be greatly missed by the entire "Mad Money" family.
