Stocks discussed in the in-depth session of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money TV program, Friday May 25. Click on a stock ticker for more analysis:

More Dow Picks: Pfizer (NYSE:PFE), Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), United Technologies (NYSE:UTX), Verizon (NYSE:VZ), Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS)

Cramer says PFE is "stuck" and owning the stock is a bit like owning a bond with a tad more upside. He admits he was too bullish on PG when he predicted it could go to $67 on the weak dollar and organic growth. However, Cramer says he wasn't bullish enough on UTX which is doing well internationally and is in "hyper-drive." He predicts UTX is headed to $73. Cramer also admits he underestimated VZ's fiberoptics and its wireless, and he would buy it for its yield and growth in spite of its 14% rise. WMT should go to $52 but not higher, predicts Cramer, as long as CEO Lee Scott is in charge. While he likes DIS, he thinks its parks will be casualty to gas prices and the success of its Pirates of the Caribbean film is priced into the stock.

Call Me Darling (NYSE:DAR)

Cramer says Darling is "as speculative as it gets" with one business that transforms animal fats into oil and a restaurant business. DAR is "en fuego," but Cramer would wait for a big selloff before buying. After that, DAR needs more analysts covering it before it tops off, and Cramer predicts the stock will go "through the roof" when it moves into the renewable energy sector. Like Tyson, DAR could go into biodiesel, but it will get pummeled first, and when it does, Cramer would buy.

Game Plan for the Coming Week: Polo Ralph Lauren (NYSE:RL), Costco (NASDAQ:COST), Sears (NASDAQ:SHLD)

Cramer would stay away with tech, and would move into retail. He recalled RL got "creamed" after its last quarter, which was excellent, but which led to a selloff because of a negative perception about the company's guidance. Therefore, Cramer would buy half a position before RL reports and half after. While he praises COST as a "delivery machine" he believes the company will continue to be misunderstood, and would buy after its earnings report. Cramer suggests pickkng up SHLD if it gets pummeled, and if not, to wait for the next drop in the stock.

CEO Interview: Catherine Burzik, Kinetic Concepts (NYSE:KCI)

Catherine Burzik wanted to reassure viewers that KCI will not be hurt by competition from Smith & Nephew after its BlueSky Medical acquisition. "I'm not sure the analysts and the Street understand the market we are in here," she said. "This is a really large market ... and it is significantly unpenetrated. There's a really large opportunity." Burzik added that since Americans are getting "fatter by the day," there will be a great demand for KCI's therapeutic services. Cramer gives the company a triple buy.
