NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I was talking today with Jim Cramer about Hess (HES) and its positive moves of asset sales and share buybacks. The company's fantastic execution has made it a real value buy in the exploding shale oil play of the Bakken.Part of the reason that Hess looks so good to me has been because of the other stock juggernaut that has been the vanguard of Bakken success: Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), a stock that Jim prefers.
