What follows is “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer’s “Game Plan” for the week of April 2.
Monday, April 2
Cramer wants to see a Chinese rate cut. If that doesn’t happen, he thinks there will be a decline in the market Monday.
He’ll also have his eye on Germany, which is releasing its Purchasing Manager’s Index number. Germany, which has the lowest unemployment rate in 20 years, needs to “remain the locomotive for the rest of Europe, and this number will tell us if they still are,” he said.
Tuesday, April 3
Auto sales numbers for March are set to be released and Cramer’s interested to know if the auto companies have been hurt by high gas prices.
March truck sales data is also being released Tuesday. He expects Cummins to get “hammered” if this number is weak and if China doesn’t cut its rates.
Wednesday, April 4
Monsanto reports before the bell Wednesday and Cramer thinks it will surprise to the upside.
After the bell, Bed Bath & Beyond announces its earnings. There’s been chatter that the company is being hurt my Amazon, with people are using the store as a showroom and then buying the products online. However, Cramer doesn’t buy it and thinks the showroom talk will be “dispelled” this quarter.Page 1 of 3 | Next Page
