You can't go wrong buying U.S. coal miners Arch (ACI) - Get Report and Peabody (BTU) - Get Report, Jim Cramer said Friday on CNBC's "Stop Trading!" segment.

Cramer said the coal stocks are cheap because they "already got killed once," so they aren't expensive. Cramer said Arch and Peabody are good bets as the nation mulls over its energy situation, though he'd stay away from

Massey

(MEE)

, which he said is "poorly run."

Cramer also likes

Chevron

(CVX) - Get Report

, saying it's the best bet right now among the oil majors, though he also likes

Mararthon

(MRO) - Get Report

. Cramer said Chevron has "gotten religion" about expanding its reserves and is buying back stock. He believes the stock could go to $82-$85 from a recent $74.50.

Cramer took issue with a Wachovia call on the media sector that favored

Viacom

(VIAB) - Get Report

at the expense of rivals

Time Warner

(TWX)

and

Disney

(DIS) - Get Report

. Cramer said the fundamentals at Viacom are "blah," so he'd avoid that stock. But he is bullish on the other two, saying he likes what Disney chief Bob Iger is doing and that CEO Richard Parsons is "unlocking value" at Time Warner.

At the time of publication, Cramer had no positions in stocks mentioned.
