Kinder said he doesn't see low oil prices being sustainable over the long term, which is why he's planning for oil to be between $65 and $75 a barrel. While he's not sure exactly when prices will return to those levels, Kinder said demand will dictate prices higher than they are today.
When asked about the low-price environment, Kinder confirmed there are plenty of opportunities for acquisitions and rollups, which is why Kinder has already made one deal, paying $3 billion for Hiland Partners in the Bakken shale.
Turning to his company's debt load, Kinder said he's always been confident that debts can be serviced while still paying out the returns that shareholders have come to expect.
Finally, Kinder said that with a new CEO coming in, he plans to stay involved in all the company's big deals and projects although he won't be running the day-to-day operations.
Cramer proclained Kinder Morgan his favorite name in S&P 500.
What's the verdict on this quarter's earnings? Cramer said once again, expectations were everything as investors reacted not necessarily to the earnings themselves but to what they thought those earnings should've been.
In a nutshell, Cramer said there weren't many surprises this quarter. Domestic companies did spectacular while internationals were, let's say, sub-optimal. While the domestic companies benefited from higher job growth and lower commodity costs, internationals for the most part suffered from currency issues.
