NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- On his Monday Stop Trading! segment on CNBC, Jim Cramer said Exxon's (XOM - Get Report) CEO Rex Tillerson is doing "a lot right" behind the scenes, as the company acquires natural-gas producer XTO Energy (XTO).
"He realizes the shales are bigger than anyone realizes," Cramer said. "I think the XTO move is a move of brilliance."
Still, Cramer laments that Exxon has always been "so biased" against stock buybacks, especially because it has done nothing for the stock.
