Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: 'Picture Perfect' Rally (Final)

Oil Service Tech Play

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer checked in with David Demshur, chairman, president and CEO of Core Labs (CLB - Get Report), an oil service technology company that Cramer said is the one to buy.

Demshur said that 70% of Core Labs' revenue comes from crude oil projects outside the U.S. with only 20% tied to natural gas. Among the areas Demshur was most excited about were deep water drilling off of Brazil and Angola as well as projects in the Middle East and off the coast of Australia.

When asked about the 20% of revenues from natural gas, Demshur said that most of that revenue is also overseas, where natural gas prices are far higher than in the U.S. When it comes to North American revenues, Demshur said that projects include oil shale projects, but also deep water projects in the Gulf of Mexico and also projects in the oil sands of Canada.

Demshur also explained that Core Lans is all about production enhancement technology. He said that lateral oil shale wells, for example, only extract 10% of the available oil that's in place. Core Labs is looking to boost those numbers closer to 15%. In the case of the company's newest project off the coast of Israel, Demshur said the first thing Core Labs will do is tell the oil companies how much gas is down there and which technologies will recover the largest share of it.

Cramer and Demshur also discusses Core Labs' dividend strategy, which Demshur said is closely tied to the company's increasing free cash flow. He said Core Labs believes in long-term shareholder appreciation and will remain committed to the company's dividend and stock re-purchase program.

Cramer continued his recommendation of Core Labs and again told investors to use the weakness which occurs after every earnings release to buy in.
