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

12:41 EDTBRCMIntel advances after analyst predicts mobile unit rebound coming
Shares of Intel (INTC) are advancing in a down market after Wells Fargo wrote that the company's mobile chip business could rebound significantly in coming quarters. WHAT'S NEW: Intel's mobile chip business could boost the company's growth and even enable it to beat earnings expectations, Wells Fargo wrote in a note to investors today. The chip maker's shipments of 4G modems should start rising significantly in the third quarter or fourth quarter of this year, the firm stated. The company has probably won some deals to provide LTE modems for smartphones and Samsung is likely one of the chip maker's initial customers, the firm wrote. Broadcom's (BRCM) decision to exit the baseband market probably improved Intel's position in the 4G market, Wells Fargo contended. Meanwhile, Intel said that by this year's holiday season, it should be ready to launch chips for mobile devices that are smaller than those of a key competitor, TSMC (TSM), Wells noted. Sales generated by Intel's mobile and communications unit may have bottomed last quarter or could do so during the current quarter, the firm believes. The unit's operating losses are likely to drop throughout this year, before falling sharply in the quarter ended March 2015, Wells estimated. The unit may approach break even by the end of 2015, the firm added. Wells kept an Outperform rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On July 15, Intel reported stronger than expected results for its quarter ended in June. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Intel rose 43c, or 1.3%, to $34.13.
10:45 EDTAAPLAnalysts roll out coverage on GoPro with differing views
Shares of GoPro (GPRO) are climbing after a number of analysts initiated coverage of the stock with different outlooks. GoPro develops mountable and wearable cameras. BULLISH TAKE: JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster initiated coverage of GoPro with an Overweight rating. GoPro is gaining share in the digital camcorder market, and it has begun to penetrate "active lifestyle" markets, which are a much larger opportunity for the company, Coster believes. The company could ship 10M of its products for use by active lifestyle participants annually, the analyst estimated. In a best case scenario, the company could also sell low-cost devices for the mass market, according to Coster. However, GoPro will face competition from major companies, including Google (GOOG) and possibly Apple (AAPL) in this market, warned Coster, who set a $51 price target on GoPro. Also initiating coverage of the name with an Overweight rating was Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Naughton. GoPro is in the early stages of growth, as the company's user base is poised to expand beyond extreme sports enthusiasts, the analyst forecast. The company has a competitive advantage over other brands, which should enable it to maintain strong profitability, added Naughton, who set a $48 price target on the shares. BEARISH TAKE: Stifel analyst Jim Duffy started coverage of GoPro with a Hold rating. The company's three year growth outlook is compelling, but the stock is fully valued, the analyst believes. The company faces a number of risks, including competition in the image device market and the possibility that its relationship with key channel partners, including Best Buy (BBY), could be disrupted, the analyst wrote. Sales to Best Buy accounted for 17% of GoPro's revenue in fiscal 2013, Duffy reported. After GoPro surged following its initial public offering, the stock is likely to advance by only limited amounts, wrote Barcalys analyst Joseph Wolf, who initiated coverage of the shares with an Equal Weight rating. The stock could fall to $30 if the company is unable to increase its hardware sales or make progress in its efforts to develop a media business, the analyst warned. He set a $45 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: A total of seven analysts rolled out coverage today on GoPro, according to The Fly’s research, with only two recommending the stock with buy-equivalent ratings. Shares of the camera marker are up 3%, or $1.10, to $42.53 in morning trading.
