“ Mad Money ” host Jim Cramer’s “Game Plan” for the week of Monday, March 5, is as follows.
MONDAY, MARCH 5
Arcos Dorados — which is Spanish for “golden arches” — reports quarterly earnings on Monday. The McDonald’s franchisee owns 1,755 restaurants, representing 6.7 percent of the fast-food giant’s total global locations. Cramer doesn’t actually want to own Arcos Dorados — which has great growth but is expensive — but he said that if the franchisee reported strong numbers, McDonald’s could be ready for its next move higher.
ConocoPhillips holds an investor update Monday. The oil giant is planning to split into two separate companies, and Cramer isn’t looking to sell this holding from his charitable trust.
TUESDAY, MARCH 6
Dick’s Sporting Goods reports Tuesday. The retailer could provide a tell for the entire industry, particularly strong names such as Underarmour and Nike, which Cramer think will be even more attractive after Dick’s results.
Vail Resorts will signal the effects of gas prices on the economy — and consumer confidence, Cramer said.
