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

05:51 EDTCMIBarclays starts U.S. Machinery space with Negative view
Barclays analyst Robert Wertheimer rolled out coverage of the U.S. Machinery space with a Negative view. Of the fifteen companies he initiated in the sector, only two are Overweight rated. Wertheimer started five names at Underweight, his firm's equivalent of a sell. Consensus estimates are too high across the board with revenue for this cycle already peaking for most of machinery, the analyst told investors last night in a research note. He sees a sharper downturn for North American trucks than the consensus expects, with another peak level eight years away. And the tractor supercycle is only two years in a downturn, while the prior two supercycles saw seven consecutive down years in machinery sales, Wertheimer adds. Allison Transmission (ALSN) and United Rentals (URI) are the analyst's Overweight-rated stocks in the sector. Deere (DE), CNH Industrial (CNHI), Cummins (CMI), PACCAR (PCAR) and Navistar (NAV) are his Underweight rated names. Wertheimer also started with Equal Weight ratings shares of Actuant (ATU), AGCO (AGCO), Caterpillar (CAT), Joy Global (JOY), Lincoln Electric (LECO), Manitowoc (MTW), Terex (TEX) and WABCO (WBC).

08:03 EDTKOCoca-Cola Bottling signs LOI to acquire manufacturing facilities
Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (COKE) has signed a non-binding letter of intent with The Coca-Cola Company (KO) to purchase manufacturing facilities in Virginia, Maryland, Indiana and Ohio and also that it has signed a definitive agreement with an affiliate of The Coca-Cola Company to expand the bottler's franchise distribution territory to include territories located within Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. The Company has signed a non-binding Manufacturing Letter of Intent with The Coca-Cola Company to purchase and operate manufacturing facilities currently owned and operated by Coca-Cola Refreshments USA, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Coca-Cola Company, in Sandston, Virginia; Silver Spring and Baltimore, Maryland; Indianapolis and Portland, Indiana and Cincinnati, Ohio. The transactions proposed in the Manufacturing Letter of Intent are subject to the parties reaching a definitive agreement, with a series of transaction closings for these facilities expected to begin in the first half of 2016. The Definitive Agreement represents the first phase of the proposed franchise territory expansion described in the previously-announced Letter of Intent dated May 12, 2015 between the Company and The Coca-Cola Company ("May 2015 Letter of Intent") and includes the following territories: Baltimore, Capital Heights, Cumberland, Easton, Hagerstown, La Plata and Salisbury in Maryland; Alexandria, Norfolk, Richmond, Yorktown, Fredericksburg and Staunton in Virginia; Elizabeth City in North Carolina; and Washington D.C. CCR currently serves these territories. The Company expects to begin a series of transaction closings for these distribution territories in the fall of 2015 and to complete them by mid-2016. The Company is continuing to work towards a definitive agreement with The Coca-Cola Company for the remainder of the proposed franchise territory expansion described in the May 2015 Letter of Intent, including distribution territories in parts of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. The Definitive Agreement and other agreements to be entered into at closing will provide the Company the exclusive rights to distribute beverage brands owned by The Coca-Cola Company as well as certain other beverage brands not owned by The Coca-Cola Company that are currently being distributed in the territories by CCR. The transaction includes the purchase by the Company of distribution assets and certain working capital items from CCR relating to these territories and the purchase of exclusive rights to distribute certain non-Coca-Cola beverage brands in these territories. The transaction also includes the grant by CCR to the Company of exclusive rights to distribute beverage brands owned by The Coca-Cola Company in these territories under a comprehensive beverage agreement to be entered into at closing. Under such agreement, the Company will make a quarterly sub-bottling payment to CCR on a continuing basis after the closing for the grant of such exclusive rights. In addition to the transactions contemplated by the Definitive Agreement, the parties also have executed a "Territory Conversion Agreement" which provides for all of the Company's franchise distribution territories with The Coca-Cola Company, including the Company's legacy, recently-acquired and to-be-acquired distribution territories, to be governed in the future by a new and final form of comprehensive beverage agreement.

07:32 EDTKOCoca-Cola signs LOI to implement national product supply system in the U.S.
The Coca-Cola Company announces the formation of a new National Product Supply System in the United States. The mission of the NPSS will be to facilitate optimal operation of the U.S. product supply system for Coca-Cola bottlers in order to: Achieve the lowest optimal manufactured and delivered cost for all bottlers in the Coca-Cola system; Enable system investment to build sustainable capability and competitive advantage; Prioritize quality, service and innovation in order to successfully meet and exceed customer and consumer requirements. Under the new NPSS, three existing independent producing bottlers, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated, Coca-Cola Bottling Company United, and Swire Coca-Cola USA, as well as the Company-owned Coca-Cola Refreshments along with Coca-Cola North America, will be members of Coca-Cola's National Product Supply Group. The NPSG will administer key national product supply activities for these NPSS bottlers, which currently represent approximately 95 percent of the U.S. produced volume. Under the initial terms of the Letters of Intent, it is anticipated that each NPSS bottler will acquire certain production facilities from CCR within their transitioning distribution territories. Initially, it is contemplated that CCR will divest the following nine production facilities with an estimated net book value of $380 million: Consolidated will acquire production facilities in Sandston, Va., Baltimore and Silver Spring, Md., Indianapolis and Portland, In. and Cincinnati, Oh.; United will acquire the production facility in New Orleans, La.; Swire will acquire production facilities in Phoenix, Az. and Denver, Co. The transition of these production facilities from CCR to NPSS bottlers is anticipated to take place between 2016 and 2018. The sale of additional production facilities from CCR to NPSS bottlers in previously announced transitioning distribution territories will be considered in due course. CCR's territories will continue to be refranchised as previously announced and decisions on any remaining production facilities in those territories will also be considered at that time. The new transactions announced today are subject to the parties reaching definitive agreements. The parties are committed to working together to implement a smooth transition with minimal disruption for customers, consumers and system associates.
