NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- There's a lot happening next week on the earnings front, Jim Cramer said on Friday's "Mad Money" as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading. Cramer said many sectors have been on fire, and he expects that trend to continue.

On Monday, Cramer said, he'll be watching both McDonald's and Netflix . He said expectations are low for McDonald's, which may provide a buying opportunity. Meanwhile, Netflix continues to have the growth that the markets can't get enough of.

Tuesday brings two stocks Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, DuPont and Apple . Cramer said that DuPont is a buy on weakness, but Apple will only go higher on a new product announcement, not on its earnings.

For Wednesday, it's Ford , PepsiCo , Facebook and Boeing reporting. Cramer said Ford, another Action Alerts PLUS name, would be a buy on weakness if sales in Europe are improving, and Pepsi and Boeing remain great long-term buys. Facebook, also a trust holding, continues to be despised by the markets, said Cramer, but also remains a good longer-term story.

Turning to Thursday, Celgene , Bristol-Myers Squibb , 3M and Amazon.com take the stage. Cramer said he's a fan of all of these stocks, although 3M may see profit-taking ahead of the quarter.

Finally, on Friday, it's Stanley Black & Decker and Weyerhaeuser reporting. Cramer said he remains bullish on housing and these two companies are right at the heart of it.

Executive Decision: T.J. Rodgers

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with T.J. Rodgers, president and CEO of Cypress Semiconductor , the semiconductor maker that's seen its shares rise 25% since Cramer last spoke with Rodgers on Jan. 25.

Rodgers said touchscreens in smartphones continue to be a huge driver for Cypress, and his company continues to deliver new technologies benefiting users around the globe. He said that even something as simple as an off-brand charger can introduce interference that can disrupt a touchscreen's operation. That's why Cypress has been developing circuits that can eliminate such interference so phones can continue to operate even while being charged.
