NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer looked at some of Friday's biggest headlines and thinks Ford  has been stuck in a trading range, despite putting up solid sales numbers and earnings results. 

Ford, a holding in his charitable portfolio, Action Alerts PLUS, has been doing well in the U.S. and Europe. But Cramer suggested speculation over CEO Alan Mulally leaving the company could be holding the stock back. Cramer believes Mulally will remain at the helm through 2014. 

Switching gears, Cramer said he likes The Container Store , which made its public debut on Friday. 

While it is expensive on a comparable-store basis, he said the company has potential to grow like a Whole Foods Market or Five Below

Cramer said he does not like the rumors surrounding AT&T about a potential acquisition of Vodafone . Cramer said there may be a perception out there that the U.S. government and AT&T might be working together to do spying in Europe, which could lead to hearings and all sorts of other problems.

He stressed this speculation "is so untrue." However, Cramer said it would make more sense if the telecom giant satisfies its need for growth by making more acquisitions in Latin America.
