A very powerful week of the successful season

CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Friday that Wall Street will be overwhelmed next week with a full list of earnings reports from some of the biggest names in the business world.

After the major averages all closed the session at all-time highs and shook off concerns about economic growth, the Mad Money host said there was virtually no room for error.

“This is the toughest week of the quarter when it comes to making informed financial decisions,” he said. “There aren’t enough hours in the day to read all of the conference calls … so do your best to focus on a few.”

Sales and earnings per share forecasts are based on FactSet estimates:
