NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Get ready for the Twitter deal and get ready to do some buying, Jim Cramer told "Mad Money" viewers Friday as he laid out his game plan for next week's trading.
Cramer said if history serves, markets that are up 20% or more for the year tend to keep on rallying. So investors need to be ready to pounce when opportunities arise.
That's why on Monday Cramer will be watching three oil and gas producers -- Anadarko Petroleum (APC), Carrizo Oil & Gas (CRZO) and Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD). Any of these stocks could rally on increased production, but also fall if the price of oil dips on the day, Cramer noted. Tuesday brings earnings from Tesla Motors (TSLA), Regeneron (REGN), AOL (AOL) and CVS Caremark (CVS). Cramer said Tesla could rally on any overseas news, but he'd sit on the sidelines for Regeneron. He expects good numbers for AOL and CVS. Then, on Wednesday, it's Whole Foods Markets (WFM), a stock where the analysts are always too critical, along with Cimarex Energy (XEC) and SolarCity (SCTY). Cramer said he'd buy Cimarex if Monday's oil stocks do well and would buy SolarCity if Tesla does well. On Thursday, shares of Twitter will be priced. Cramer said investors shouldn't expect to get in on this red-hot IPO but he feels shares are worth a valuation up to $20 billion. Also on Thursday, Walt Disney (DIS), another stock worth buying on any weakness. Finally, on Friday, it's non-farm payroll numbers. Cramer said he doesn't expect the market to react positively to this news, so investors should be prepared for weakness. Speculation Friday For "Speculation Friday," Cramer highlighted Swift Energy (SFY), a tiny oil and gas producer whose shares fell from a high of $45 a share to $30 last year to a scant $12.95 a share today. Cramer explained that Swift was once a pure play on natural gas and natural gas liquids, two areas of the oil and gas market that have been under tremendous pressure for the past few years. But like so many of its competitors, Swift is now making the transition away from natural gas and towards the lucrative oil side of the business, a move that's "better late than never," said Cramer.

- [By Robert Rapier] There were a half a dozen initial public offerings (IPOs) by master limited partnerships in the first half of the year, and all but one are now in the green while one has nearly doubled in value.
The first MLP IPO of 2013 debuted on Jan. 15. USA Compression Partners (NYSE: USAC), which I mentioned in last week’s issue, provides compression services for the oil and gas industry. Units have advanced 36 percent since the IPO, and at the current price yield 7.3 percent.
The day after the USA Compression Partners IPO, CVR Refining (NYSE: CVRR) made its debut. CVRR was spun off from CVR Energy (NYSE: CVI), and both companies remain majority-owned by Carl Icahn. CVR Refining’s primary assets are two refineries located in Kansas and Oklahoma with a combined processing capacity of approximately 185,000 barrels per day (bpd). These refineries are strategically located near the major Cushing, Oklahoma shipment and storage hub, with easy access to discounted feedstock from the nearby Permian basin, as well as the Bakken shale and Canadian oil sands.
But refiners have struggled with diminished margins in 2013 because of a much lower Brent-WTI differential. After the recently concluded second quarter, CVRR declared a distribution of $1.35 per unit, bringing its per-unit distributions for the first half of the year to $2.93. At the same time, CVR Refining lowered its annual distribution target to a range of $4.10 to $4.80 per unit. This was lower than the outlook issued in March, when it foresaw annual distributions of $5.50 to $6.50. CVRR units slid on the news, and are presently trading slightly below the $25 IPO price. The lower end of the revised forecast implies distributions of $1.17 per unit in the second half of the year, for a forward annualized yield of 10 percent based on the recent $23.50 unit price.
SunCoke Energy Partners (NYSE: SXCP) was the third IPO to debut during a very busy third week of January. SXCP is the first M

The partnership is engaged in the development and production of liquids-rich conventional resource reservoirs in east-central Oklahoma.

New Source Energy Partner L.P. (NYSE: NSLP) is definitely a name for investors interested in yield. While the company faced some issues in the second quarter due to flooding in some of its drilling areas, production is back to normal and management is very positive for the remainder of 2013. Oppenheimer has a $23 price objective, while the consensus is at $24. Investors are paid a stellar 11% distribution.

Global Hunter also lowered its rating on Natural Gas Services Group (NGS) and Vantage Drilling (VTG). Global Hunter writes:
The market seems to be showing fatigue particularly with positive onshore oil service data points that may no�longer seem incremental. Investors have become especially focused on potential issues and macro concerns. We believe this phase�of enhanced risk perceptions will pass and still recommend owning selective stocks based on attractive valuations and healthy�fundamentals. Of the 16 oilfield services companies having reported their quarters to date, the share price changes have at times�been difficult to tie to specific results. �… Five of the 12 companies who have beaten earnings expectations have seen their share prices drop on the day, including Basic Energy Services (BAS) (-9.0%), Baker Hughes (BHI) (-2.5%), National Oilwell Varco (NOV) (-1.5%), Oceaneering (OII) (-4.2%), and Schlumberger (SLB) (-2.0%). Other stocks beating expectations have traded higher as expected, including Cameron International (CAM) (+4.1%), FMC Technologies (FTI) (+3.1%), Mitcham Industries (MIND) (+3.8%), Nabors Industries (NBR) (+1.2%), Patterson-UTI Energy (PTEN) (+1.8%), RPC (RES) (+8.4%), and Weatherford International (WFT) (+2.3%).
