Cramer says Big Lots is the last of the retailers to report quarterly results and is one that is often rumored to be "in talks."
Wall Street analysts are expecting earnings of 59 cents a share and revenue of $1.28 billion for the quarter. Last quarter the company beat analysts' earnings estimates by a penny, and its revenue was in line with expectations.
For the first fiscal quarter of 2015, which ends at the end of April, investors will be watching same-store sales numbers, a key metric for retailers.
They'll also want to see how foods and consumables are affecting the company's gross margin. Some analysts are expecting weak sales numbers due to a struggle in this area of their business.
In addition, the company is in the process of building its e-commerce business so investors will want to hear about updates on this.
The stock has a 52-week low of $36.76 and a 52-week high of $51.75. Its 50-day moving average is $46.
Big Lots has provided a 1.6% yield plus a 23% return to investors over the past year.
