NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Last week, TheStreet's Jim Cramer and Stephanie Link, co-managers of the Actions Alerts PLUS portfolio, initiated a position in Chevron (CVX - Get Report). They said they liked the stock's dividend yield, short-term catalysts and long-term value.
Link has expressed her bullish view on the energy sector as a whole in a conversation with TheStreet's Jill Malandrino. Link and Cramer are certainly bullish on the specific energy companies in their portfolio.
Names such as Occidental Petroleum
(OXY - Get Report) and National Oilwell Varco
(NOV - Get Report) have positive catalysts that could push shares higher.
Cramer and Link are looking for these stocks to benefit from the companies' decisions to spinoff certain business segments. Since the spinoffs were announced, however, the stocks have given up the initial gains and in some cases are actually lower.
Cramer and Link say this doesn't make sense and that they believe future gains are in store for shareholders of these stocks.Get more of Jim Cramer and Stephanie Link's top picks in real time.
