by: Miriam Metzinger

Stocks discussed in the in-depth session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Friday March 23. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

Game Plan for Next Week: Brocade (NASDAQ:BRCD), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ), Phillips-Van Heusen (NYSE:PVH), CarMax (NYSE:KMX), Accenture (NYSE:ACN) and DSW (NYSE:DSW), Movado (NYSE:MOV)

Cramer suggested buying Brocade ahead of an analysts meeting on Thursday during which it is expected to raise its estimates. Although Cramer does not usually recommend Cisco's competitors, the stock should rise after the meeting and he predicts Cisco might buy BRCD. While he likes BRCD as a trade, the only tech stocks good for investments are AAPL and HPQ. Cramer expects strong earnings reports next week from PVH, KMX, ACN and DSW. Cramer's top stock next week is MOV which he thinks will deliver a "substantial upside surprise."

Good and Bad IPOs Photowatt, eTelecare with stock First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR)

Cramer discussed two companies which are going public next week, one to pay attention to and one to avoid. Concerning Photowatt, which will trade under PHWT, Cramer says "We have had way too many solar stocks come public and there's not enough demand, even with the hype that surrounds solar... Avoid it at any price." He suggested FSLR for those who want a solar stock. However, Cramer thinks eTelecare, an outsourcing company based in the Philippines "the next great, outsourcing center," might be a good stock. It is expected to trade under the symbol ETEL from between $12.50 and $14.50. Cramer would not pay more than $15 and urged, "please buy it carefully."

"Happy Oligopoly": Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE:FCX)

FCX is now a "happy oligopoly" after having merged with Phelps Dodge and has cornered copper, comments Cramer, who says its a "screaming" buy. FCX is a "terrific hedge against inflation" and is in "tremendous demand." Its secondary offering was priced at 41 million shares and FCX rose $1. Cramer notes that FCX is a well-liked stock which will continue to go up. While analyst estimates are not high, Cramer predicts FCX will provide "blow away" numbers. He adds that while demand for copper has declined in the U.S., it is a sought-after mineral in China. Cramer sees this $62 stock going to $100.

Mad Mail: Altria (NYSE:MO), Kraft Foods (KFT), Dean Foods (NYSE:DF)

When asked how MO holders can lessen the risk of a downside from KFT after it is spun off, Cramer suggests buying MO's "when-issued shares." However, he added, "Kraft will be added to the S&P 500 so there's a very good chance it won't go down at all." Cramer would stay with DF which should go up again.
