Jim Cramer talks with senior energy contributor Dan Dicker about his current outlook on the energy sector. ?Oily? U.S. exploration and production companies like EOG Resources (EOG), Cimarex (XEC) and Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) have moved up very fast, says Dicker, perhaps borrowing gains from late 2014 and early 2015. Better value lies right now in the natural gas names, where gas prices remain firm and other catalysts are yet to be felt. Dicker particularly likes Encana (ECA) and Southwestern (SWN).
