11:47 EDTCLNE, QCOM, LULU, HNZ, PAY, ROST, APC, BRCM, UA, HEK, SZYM, VRA, URBN, K, AAPL, SLRC, PVX, ERF, CVXJim 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
