11:47 EDTHEK, SZYM, VRA, URBN, K, AAPL, SLRC, PVX, ERF, CVX, CLNE, QCOM, LULU, HNZ, PAY, ROST, APC, BRCM, UAJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers on Friday that next week brings renewed hope. He said if there's another big sell-off, he's just got the stock to buy. Cramer's game plan for the week of March 12th included several "look-and-listen" earnings calls. MONDAY: Clean Energy (CLNE) should provide a read on natural gas adoption for America's truck fleet, while Urban Outfitters (URBN) needs to detail a plan to reignite growth. TUESDAY brings a pair of investor conferences in the oil patch. Cramer said that Anadarko Petroleum (APC) and Chevron (CVX) should give investors a handle on the state of the world's oil and gas supply. The Federal Reserve also meets. WEDNESDAY: Cramer said he'll be watching the short squeeze in Vera Bradley (VRA), a stock he's previously said is far to hot to handle. FRIDAY: the February consumer price index and industrial production numbers will also provide some "look and listen" data points. So what should investors actually buy next week? Cramer said he's bullish on the IPO of Dreamware, an ecommerce software maker. But his pick of the week was discount retailer Ross Stores (ROST), a stock Cramer said he'd buy aggressively on any weakness or sell-off in the market. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with Gordon Kerr, president and CEO of Enerplus (ERF), a Canadian oil and gas producer that sports a hefty 9.1% yield. Kerr plans to continue to spend money adding acreage and reserves in both the Bakken and Marcellus shale fields here in the U.S. Kerr said the dividend is safe and Enerplus will even be expanding its dividend reinvestment plan to include U.S. shareholders soon. Cramer said he's a fan of Enerplus. SPECULATION FRIDAY: Cramer focused on Solazyme (SZYM), which develops an industrial biotech platform that uses algae to turn plants into specialty oils. The company has almost no sales and even fewer profits, but does have a ton of potential applications. It has created a host of valuable partnerships. Cramer said the market opportunities for Solazyme are gigantic, if the company can actually ramp up production of its technologies in any one of its many market opportunities. The company has enough capital to fund itself, with $243M in cash, a solid balance sheet and the ability to borrow more if it needs to. Cramer said with no real catalyst until 2013, the decision to own Solazyme should only be made if investors feel it fits their personal risk tolerances. HOMEWORK: Cramer followed up on Verifone Systems (PAY), a stock he said he saw a lot of good things in the company's earnings results and thinks the stock is cheap at 16x earnings. Cramer said that Provident Energy (PVX) is dead money, as the company ponders a recent takeover bid. Heckmann (HEK), Cramer said that he's still a buyer as the business is still good. Cramer was also bullish on Kellogg's (K) and one he likes more than Heinz (HNZ). Cramer also reiterated his buy on Solar Capital (SLRC), as the company's cash flow more than covers its dividend. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer said the markets used to use the phrase "growth versus value," which made sense. In markets like ours, when the consumer is feeling better and input costs are falling, discretionary stocks like Under Armour (UA) and Lululemon Athletica (LULU) can power higher, which is why growth names across the board are charging higher. CLOSING COMMENTS: Cramer reiterated that the way to play Apple (AAPL) is by buying Apple. He added that Broadcom (BRCM) and Qualcomm (QCOM) are also great derivative stocks. Reference Link

17:00 EDTQCOMMarket ends week higher after upbeat U.S. data, hint at ECB easing
Stocks finished the week higher and near record levels as several better than expected U.S. economic data points boosted shares. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims, a manufacturing index for October, and factory orders for September all beat expectations. The nonfarm payrolls report showed fewer than expected jobs were added last month, but the figures from the prior two months were upwardly revised... European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said the ECB Governing Council was unanimous in its commitment to use unconventional instruments if needed to boost the euro zone's economy. Meanwhile, some possible "green shoots" emerged in Europe, as France reported that its manufacturing output had risen 0.6% in September versus August. Furthermore, Western European car sales surged 5.5% in October versus the same period a year earlier, Reuters reported, citing industry data. There was, however, some negative news out of Europe, as Germany said that its factory orders had increased just 0.8% in September, following a revised 4.2% slump in August. Economists had expected the orders to jump 2.3%. Also, the European Commission cut its 2014 GDP growth forecast for the EU to 0.8% from its previous forecast for a 1.2% gain. COMPANY NEWS: Tesla (TSLA), Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), International Paper (IP), Whole Foods (WFM), and upscale accessories and apparel maker Kate Spade (KATE) were among the stocks that climbed following their results. Conversely, multi-level marketer Herbalife (HLF), Priceline (PCLN), Michael Kors (KORS), IT security company FireEye (FEYE), and chip maker Qualcomm (QCOM) fell following their quarterly reports... In takeover news, clinical laboratory company LabCorp (LH) said it would buy drug development services company Covance (CVD) for $105.12 per share in cash and stock, and marketing services company Sapient (SAPE) agreed to be acquired by French advertising giant Publicis (PUBGY) for $25.00 per share in cash... Shares of a number of hospital owners, including Tenet Healthcare (THC), Community Health (CYH), and HCA Holdings (HCA) fell after Republicans won control of the U.S. Senate. Republicans have promised to seek to repeal most parts of the Affordable Care Act, which benefits hospitals by reducing the number of uninsured patients that use their services. Additionally, the Supreme Court today agreed to hear a lawsuit challenging the federal government's right to subsidize the health insurance premiums of Americans who buy health insurance through the federal exchange set up by the Act... The Justice Department sued to block the acquisition of Screenvision, which provides solutions related to cinema advertising, by movie theater ad network National CineMedia (NCMI), sending its stock lower. Movie theater operator Carmike Cinemas (CKEC), which owns a 19% profits interest" in the holding company for Screenvision, also slid following the news. INDEXES: For the week, the Dow is up 1.04% to 17,573.93, the Nasdaq is up 0.03% to 4,632.53, and the S&P 500 is up 0.66% to 2,031.92.
