Big week of earnings with Snowflake and Toll Brothers reporting

CNBC’s Jim Cramer is eager to begin focusing back on the stock market, but the cryptocurrency craze is still capturing Wall Street’s attention.

He expects that bitcoin and other speculative coins will continue to be top of mind, and the big declines being witnessed in crypto markets will drag on stocks. This could create buying opportunities for investors in stocks as another packed week of earnings rolls through.

“All in all, this is a historically slow week, but there are enough new companies reporting that it’s now jam-packed,” Cramer, discussing his game plan for next week, said on “Mad Money” Friday.

The week ahead will close out trading for the month. With the exception of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the major U.S. indexes are down month to date. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite is down 3.5% in May, while the S&P 500 has lost 0.6% over that time period. The Dow is up about 1% in May.

Cramer gave viewers a preview of the upcoming corporate earnings reports he has circled on his calendar.

“Maybe, just maybe, that can overshadow bitcoin, as long as Elon Musk can keep his mouth shut about crypto,” he said.

Projections for revenue and earnings per share are based on FactSet estimates:

Monday: Lordstown Motors earnings

Tuesday: Autozone, Intuit, Toll Brothers earnings

Wednesday: Dick’s Sporting Goods, American Eagle Outfitters, Williams-Sonoma, Nvidia, Snowflake, Okta, Workday earnings

Dick’s Sporting Goods

  • Q1 2021 earnings release: before market; conference call: Wednesday, 8:30 a.m.
  • Projected EPS: $1.16
  • Projected revenue: $2.2 billion

“I bet they deliver astounding numbers because all sorts of sporting goods are in short supply as Americans venture outdoors en masse,” Cramer said.

American Eagle Outfitters

  • Q1 2021 earnings release: 4:15 p.m.; conference call: 4:30 p.m.
  • Projected EPS: 46 cents
  • Projected revenue: $1.02 billion

“I think we could see similar strength from American Eagle, as it’s currently the hottest apparel chain on earth,” he said.

Williams-Sonoma

  • Q1 2021 earnings release: after market; conference call: 5 p.m.
  • Projected EPS: $1.72
  • Projected revenue: $1.5 billion

“I expect great numbers, but it’s been tagged as a stay-at-home stock of late, which is the kiss of death in this post-pandemic market,” the host said.

Nvidia

  • Fiscal Q1 2022 earnings release: after market; conference call: 5 p.m.
  • Projected EPS: $3.28
  • Projected revenue: $5.39 billion

“I think the chipmaker has a lot going for it, but I still want to hear how confident they feel about getting regulatory permission for the Arm Holdings acquisition,” he said.

Snowflake

  • Fiscal Q1 2022 earnings release: after market; conference call: 5 p.m.
  • Projected losses per share: 16 cents
  • Projected revenue: $360 million

Okta

  • Fiscal Q1 2022 earnings release: after market; conference call: 5 p.m.
  • Projected losses per share: 12 cents
  • Projected revenue: $309 million

“They’re two of the fastest-growing companies on earth,” Cramer said. “I expect great numbers from both, but you should only buy them if you think this market will change its attitude toward high-flying growth names that don’t trade on earnings — they trade on sales.”

Workday

  • Fiscal Q1 2022 earnings release: after market; conference call: 4:30 p.m.
  • Projected EPS: 73 cents
  • Projected revenue: $1.16 billion

“Workday should deliver still one more stunning quarter as they use cloud-software to automate back-office jobs in human resources and finance,” he said.

  • Projected EPS: $1.40

“I like all three and think they’re good stimulus plays, but their stocks have become awfully controversial and I don’t really care for controversy,” Cramer said. “There are easier ways to make money.”

Medtronic

  • Fiscal Q4 2021 earnings release: 6:45 a.m.; conference call: 8 a.m.
  • Projected EPS: $1.42
  • Projected revenue: $8.14 billion

“I bet they report a stellar number because its medical devices are being installed in record numbers post-pandemic,” he said. “There’s a lot of pent-up demand from people who delayed surgery until they could get vaccinated.”

Gap

  • Q1 earnings release: 4:15 p.m.; conference call: 5 p.m.
  • Projected losses per share: 6 cents
  • Projected revenue: $3.41 billion

Ulta Beauty

  • Q1 2021 earnings release: after market; conference call: 4:30 p.m.
  • Projected EPS: $1.95

Costco

  • Fiscal Q3 2021 earnings release: 4:15 p.m.; conference call: 5 p.m.
  • Projected EPS: $2.31
  • Projected revenue: $43.64 billion

“Costco has a tendency to run up into the quarter and then sell off immediately even if the numbers are great. Doesn’t matter what they print,” Cramer said. “I love Costco the store, I love Costco the stock … but you don’t want to buy it until after you see the results — let this one come to you.”

Salesforce

  • Projected EPS: $1.71
  • Projected revenue: $23.80 billion
