Jim Cramer said if the Chinese don't deliver on an interest rate cut by Sunday, then Q2 could start out ugly, with less momentum to keep pushing stocks higher. That's why Cramer's game plan for next week's trading was on the cautious side. Cramer said the markets will also be watching the latest German manufacturing numbers. TUESDAY: Cramer said the markets will be watching the latest auto and truck sales. If higher gasoline prices are hurting the U.S. economy, Cramer said it will show up on Tuesday. He told viewers that weak truck sales will be especially bad for Cummins (CMI). WEDNESDAY: Monsanto (MON) and Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) reports - Cramer expects good things from both companies and would be a buyer on any weakness from either. THURSDAY: Carmax (KMX) will give another read on the U.S. consumer and higher gas prices. Cramer advised not buying Carmax ahead of the quarter. He was also bullish on Constellation Brands (STZ) and said that the latest retail sales data will make Gap Stores (GPS) the stock to watch in the retail group. FRIDAY: The latest unemployment numbers being released. Cramer expects weakness from the decline in oil and gas drilling, thanks to America's inept energy policy. IPOs: Cramer told viewers to get in on Retail Properties of America, which will begin trading under the ticker RPAI. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer checked in with Nick Akins, president and CEO of American Electric Power (AEP), one of America's top generators of electricity and a company with a 4.9% dividend yield. The shares are down 6.6% for the year over concerns that 65% of the company's power is derived from coal. Cramer said that AEP remains a great, solid company with a great yield, one that deserves a spot in every investor's portfolio. Cramer also spoke with Vivek Ranadive, chairman and CEO of TIBCO Software (TIBX), whose shares fall 6% Friday after it reported a 1c earnings beat on higher-than-expected revenue. Shares of TIBCO, a big data analytics provider, are up 27% since Cramer last spoke with Ranadive on Jan. 11. Ranadive was very bullish on TIBCO's prospects and Cramer remained bullish on TIBCO. MAD TWEETS: Cramer said that no investor should ever have more than 20% of his or her portfolios in speculative stocks. He recommended Roundy's Supermarket (RNDY), a little-known midwest supermarket purveyor with 159 locations under five different brands. Roundy's came public to little fanfare on Feb. 7 and after a modest 6% rise on its first day, shares have been creeping higher, up 26% so far. But what makes Roundy's unique, said Cramer, is its incredible 8.5% dividend yield, one that's triple the industry average. Roundy's, which trades at a scant 7x earnings, is far too cheap, given the company's 10% growth rate. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer sounded off against the critics who feel that red-hot IPOs are a sign the markets have gotten too hot to handle. Cramer said nothing could be farther from the truth, as the big secondary offerings from Dollar General (DG) and Dunkin Brands (DNKN) proved this week. Both offerings immediately turned a profit for those who got in on the deal. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) ARCC; EMC; ARNA. (Bearish) LIZ; RIMM; KO; SHFL; NTAP; LNG. Reference Link

10:37 EDTSTZKraft rises after Goldman gets less cautious on food space, ups stock to buy
Shares of Kraft Foods (KRFT) are climbing after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock to Buy and placed the shares on its Conviction List. WHAT'S NEW: Costs for food makers are declining as commodity prices drop, Goldman Sachs analyst Judy Hong wrote in a note to investors today. Kraft is among the U.S. food companies that benefits the most from lower costs, the analyst stated. Additionally, Kraft's pricing power is one of the strongest in the group and it is heavily exposed to the U.S. economy, the analyst stated. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Hong's upgrade of Kraft was part of a note in which she took a more balanced view of the U.S. consumer staples sector. The analyst upgraded the Food sector to Neutral from Cautious, noting that consumer staples stocks with outsized exposure to the U.S. market should be boosted by strong U.S. growth and more favorable foreign exchange dynamics than their peers. In addition to Kraft, the analyst identified the following stocks as her top picks within the consumer staples sector: Monster Beverage (MNST), Constellation Brands (STZ), Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE), Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR), Freshpet (FRPT), Mead Johnson (MJN), and Estee Lauder (EL). Goldman also upgraded Hershey (HSY), Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS), and Clorox (CLX), all to Neutral from Sell, downgraded cigarette maker Philip Morris (PM) to Sell from Neutral and downgraded brewer Molson Coors (TAP) to Neutral from Buy. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Kraft climbed 3.7% to $65 per share.
