Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Avoid These High-Drama Stocks!
Cramer said that while this portfolio has a ton of yield, it's too levered to energy. He suggested selling Sandridge and again adding a stock like Walt Disney.
No Huddle Offense
In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer dove into the paradox that has become falling oil prices. With the price of oil down from over $120 a barrel to just over $100 a barrel, shouldn't stocks from restaurants to retailers be rallying? What about hotel and travel stocks, casinos and even home builders selling homes in communities with longer commutes to work?
Cramer said that falling oil prices should make all of these stocks head higher, but there's a problem. While oil prices are plummeting, gasoline prices are holding firm. Cramer said oil refining has become a terrible business and many companies are simply shutting down refineries rather than investing the billions of dollars needed to modernize them to meet EPA standards.
Cramer said the only way to get gas prices down is to use less gas, and that only happens by converting to natural gas. A simple incentive to convert heavy trucks to natural gas could cut oil imports by 25%, said Cramer, not to mention the savings from incentivizing building owners to convert from oil to gas for heating.
Cramer said that consumers should demand politicians get behind a move to use more natural gas and get North America energy-independent.
