Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: PXD CXO ABX NEM

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Permian Basin is "so, so big," TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, said on CNBC's "Cramer Stop Trading" segment. 

Two companies that are best positioned to take advantage of the Permian Basin are Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD - Get Report) and Concho Resources (CXO - Get Report). Concho is particularly interesting because it is undervalued and will go higher, he said. 

Turning to gold miners, Cramer thinks a deal between Barrick Gold (ABX - Get Report) and Newmont Mining (NEM - Get Report) will get done. In fact, he said, the merger between the two miners will be the first of many consolidations in the sector. 

Gold prices continue to stagnate while miners' costs are still too high. Therefore, merging several gold miners makes sense, he argued, so investors should buy the stocks involved in the deals. 

So far, investors seem to be ignoring the potential deals in the gold mining space -- particularly between NEM and ABX -- but Cramer attributed this to the fact that gold prices haven't gone up.
