NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Earlier Wednesday I was talking with Jim Cramer, wrapping up this quarter's earnings in the oil majors including Exxon Mobil (XOM - Get Report), Conoco (COP - Get Report) and Chevron (CVX - Get Report). All had posted headline beats.But looking inside the earnings, I said to Jim, that the last quarter is useful but only as an insight into how the next several are going to go. That insight, along with an understanding of the stock price action, is the best way to gauge which of the majors I'd like to be invested in and which I would more likely sell.
