Jim Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Upside and Downside Risks

Rascoff continued that his company's scale is helping it grow because advertisers want to advertise on the largest sites in their community -- and for many communities, that's Zillow. In markets where Zillow was not number one, such as New York City, the company has been making smart acquisitions to help it get to where it needs to be.

Rascoff also clarified that Zillow is the engine behind all of of the real estate listings at Yahoo! (YHOO), and his company even has a database of pre-foreclosure properties, so users can see the health of a community and get an advanced jump on buying properties that are in distress.

Cramer said he's siding with the bulls and thinks Zillow still has a lot of growth left to go.

Oil Plays

No matter what Washington may do to sabotage our economy, the domestic oil bull market will rage on, Cramer told viewers. While many may already be familiar with the Eagle Ford, Marcellus and Bakken oil shale regions, Cramer focused on yet another recent big oil find, the Niobrara shale region in northeast Colorado.

While many praised the Niobrara early on as the next big thing, the region has proven for many to yield only mixed results. Turns out the hottest area of the Niobrara centers near Denver, which is where several drillers are profiting handsomely.

Anadarko Petroleum (APC), a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, is one such driller and is the most active in the Niobrara region with over 350,000 acres.

Noble Energy (NBL) is another big player in the region, and is on track to drill 50% more wells in 2013 than it did in 2012. Many estimate Noble's acreage to be worth more than $13.8 billion, more than the entire company's current valuation.

Cramer also endorsed some of the smaller Niobrara drillers, including PDC Energy (PDCE), with 98,000 acres, Bonanza Creek (BCEI), and also Bill Barrett (BBG), the smallest pure play in the region with only 16 wells but 60 more in the works.

Others who drill in the region, as well as in other oil shales, include Whiting Petroleum (WLL) and Carrizo Oil & Gas (CRZO).
