This is a treacherous market filled with extreme stock moves

CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Friday offered viewers his game plan for the next five trading days on Wall Street.

The “Mad Money” host’s lookahead came after the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite posted their best weeks so far in 2022, finishing 1.5% and 2.4% higher, respectively.

“This week we saw the true colors of what is a treacherous market,” the “Mad Money” host said. If investors love a stock, there’s “no level it won’t be taken up to,” he said. “But if it’s hated? There are no depths it won’t sink to. Either way … it’s likely to be an extreme.”

Monday: Tyson Foods, Two-Take Interactive and Simon Property Group

Tuesday: Centene, Pfizer, Chipotle, DuPont and Peloton

Centene

  • Q4 earnings before the open; conference call at 8:30 a.m. ET
  • Projected EPS: 98 cents
  • Projected revenue: $32.5 billion

“I think it’s a takeover target and I bet we’ll get a very good quarter,” Cramer said of the health insurer.

Pfizer

  • Q4 earnings before the bell; conference call at 10 a.m. ET
  • Projected EPS: 87 cents
  • Projected sales: $24.16 billion

Cramer also said he expects very good numbers from Pfizer.

DuPont

  • Q4 earnings before the open; conference call at 8 a.m. ET
  • Projected EPS: 99 cents
  • Projected revenue: $4.02 billion

“The great industrials have had a real up and down time in this market and I fear this could be DuPont’s down time, which is why we finally decided to ring the register for a terrific profit for the charitable trust,” Cramer said.

Chipotle

  • Q4 earnings after the close; conference call at 4:30 p.m. ET
  • Projected EPS: $5.25
  • Projected sales: $1.96 billion

Cramer said Chipotle’s quarter is the one he’s most interested in Tuesday. “I think it could do low double-digit same-store sales versus last year’s already excellent numbers and that should cause the stock to ignite,” he said. “Raw costs are always a problem in the business, though.”

Peloton

  • Q2 earnings after the close; conference call at 5 p.m. ET
  • Projected EPS: Loss of $1.22
  • Projected revenue: $1.14 billion

Cramer said he’s looking for a host of updates from Peloton’s management after the exercise equipment maker’s stock has been pummeled in recent months. One topic that is likely to come up is The Wall Street Journal’s report Friday that Amazon has approached Peloton about a potential deal, Cramer said.

Wednesday: CVS Health, PepsiCo, Disney and Mattel

Thursday: Coca-Cola, Twitter, Cloudflare and Zendesk

Friday: Under Armour, Cleveland-Cliffs and Goodyear Tire & Rubber
