09:27 EDTLNG, ARCC, EMC, ARNA, LIZ, RIMM, KO, SHFL, NTAP, DNKN, DG, RNDY, TIBX, AEP, GPS, MON, BBBY, KMX, STZ, CMIJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
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
