TheStreet's Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer believes shares of Freeport (FCX) - Get Report could be a buy if the commodities company starts shedding oil assets. Cramer points to Chesapeake (CHK) - Get Report and Marathon (MRO) - Get Report which have both been selling assets. Cramer said, 'What would happen if Freeport really started peeling off some oil. FCX is a stock that was a short all the way down when commodities were going down. Now that commodities have stabilized Freeport might be a long.'
