No Huddle Offense
In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer opined on what he called a disturbing trend in the oil patch, the stocks of the major integrated producers getting pummeled, even when their earnings are actually pretty good. Cramer said when Chevron ( CVX) reported, its stock got hammered because the company has simply become too large to be a quick grower and it can barely replenish its current reserves. Coming from such a base base, Cramer said there's little Chevron or rival Exxon Mobil ( XOM) can do to generate excitement on Wall Street. That's why Cramer said he continues to like the independent names such as Pioneer Natural Resources, which offers investors not only accelerating production growth but also the possibility of a takeover bid from none other than the lies of Chevon or Exxon.
In his "Homework" segment, Cramer followed up on a few stocks that stumped him on earlier shows. He said Onconova Therapeutics ( ONTX) might be interesting, but only after the results from its latest Phase II trials are completed. Cramer was not excited when asked about Fly Leasing ( FLY), a stock that concerns him because this company has disappointed in the past. Cramer was more upbeat on AMN Healthcare ( AHS), which delivered a two-cents-a-share earnings beat, news that sent shares up 11%. He said that things look good for AMN in 2014. Cramer also had kind words for Tableau Software ( DATA), the cloud-based business intelligence provider that popped 9% on its earnings, only to drift lower on a huge secondary offering. He said that he'd pick up shares of Tableau on any weakness. Finally, Cramer said that Kroger ( KR) remains the best of the traditional grocers.
