CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Friday that enduring the current market is a waiting game for a rally — and investors need to be prepared for when that happens.

“Your portfolio should be split among some cash and some stocks that can thrive in a recession. … You need to accept the fact that we’re simply trying to stay in the game until times get better,” the “Mad Money” host said. 

“But when we do reach the promised land, it’ll be worth it, because that’s when stocks come roaring back,” he added.

The market concluded a bumpy week of trading on Friday. While the market rallied on Wednesday afternoon following the Federal Reserve‘s decision to raise interest rates by 50 basis points, losses on Thursday and Friday demolished those gains. A basis point equals 0.01%.

Cramer said he will be watching for the April consumer price index release next week. “If we do get a weaker CPI figure, the market could rally,” he said.

He also previewed next week’s earnings slate. All earnings and revenue estimates are courtesy of FactSet.
