Jim Cramer once again reminded his "Mad Money" viewers that we're in a stock picker's market. That's why his game plan for next week's trading is all about individual companies and their earnings reports. (Monday) Cramer will be watching Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF) to see how opening weekend goes for "The Hunger Games." He said anything less than $120M in ticket sales and investors need to sell. (Tuesday) Lennar (LEN) needs to post a strong number, or all of the gains in the home-related stocks will be at risk. Cramer was bullish on both McCormick (MKC) and PVH Corp (PVH) ahead of their reports. Walgreens (WAG) is a sell according to Cramer - he would pick up CVS Caremark (CVS) instead. (Wednesday) Expectations are high for Family Dollar (FDO) and he would use any weakness in the group to buy Dollar Tree (DLTR). He remained bullish on Paychex (PAYX) with its 4% yield. He was also bullish on cloud software purveyor Red Hat (RHT), which is up 25% for the year. (Thursday) Cramer is not a buyer of Best Buy (BBY) and said using the April 25 call options would be a better play for investors looking to gamble on earnings. He had nothing good to say about Blackberry maker Research in Motion (RIMM). (Friday) Cramer said with so much great news coming from the footwear segment, he'd be a buyer of Finish Line (FINL) on any weakness. SPECULATION FRIDAY: Cramer highlighted Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD), a stock he said has been on his radar for many weeks. He said with shares now 10% off their highs, now is the right time to consider the company. Cramer likes Cornerstone for two reasons, first as a takeover target, and second as a stand-alone company.Similar companies have been bought at 15% higher than where Cornerstone trades. Potential competition from Salesforce.com (CRM) coming into the HR space is already baked into Cornerstones stock price, Cramer says. In his "What The Heck" segment, Cramer explained why magazine publisher Meredith (MDP) has seen its shares rally 60% since last October, despite calls that print magazines are all but dead and buried. Reasons: Meredith is not a pure-play on magazines. The company has been taking market share and increasing ad revenues. And, the company’s recent dividend boost and meaningful stock buyback program. HOMEWORK: Cramer opined on Map Pharmaceuticals (MAPP), a biotech company working with Allergan (AGN) in the treatment of migraines. Cramer said that Map is likely to be volatile and he still prefers Allergan. Cramer was bullish on Oxford Industries (OXM), a retail lifestyle brand that trades at 17x earnings with a 15% growth rate. He was bearish on MagicJack (CALL), a stock that's already run up 80% so far this year. When asked about Vale (VALE), Cramer said he prefers Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF). Cramer was not a buyer of Coinstar (CSTR). Rounding up the emails, Cramer said he's a buyer of McDonald's (MCD), he likes Clean Harbors (CLH) and investors looking for semiconductor names should consider Intel (INTC) for safety or Broadcom (BRCM) for growth. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer followed up on Carrizo Oil & Gas (CRZO) after Thursday's interview with the company's CEO. Cramer reiterated that he thinks the stock is a buy at $30, especially given that the company's Eagle Ford assets alone are worth more than that figure.
