Tuesday Night's Show Highlights:

Halliburton is back, & they have finally shown a positive guidance tone! Consider HAL!

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Cramer's comments: (prev. night's show posted each business morning before the market open)

Jim: quote markIf you want to know why this earnings season has started off so well, let me give you one word: earnings! Take Halliburton, the oil service titan, and one of my favorite ways to play the domestic oil and gas renaissance. I write about it in Get Rich Carefully. It's one of the companies that gets 55% of its business from the United States.

quote markJust yesterday Halliburton reported, and the company totally knocked it out of the park. You might not have realized how amazing this quarter was merely by looking at the headline numbers though, as HAL beat the earnings estimates by a penny off 72-cent basis, with significantly higher-than-expected revenues, that rose 5.4% year over year. No. The real key here was the change in tone when it comes to Halliburton's North American guidance.

quote markFor the past few quarters, there had been too much capacity in some of HAL's main businesses, like pressure pumping. But now management sees that capacity tightening at a faster-than-expected rate. They're forecasting stronger activity, higher utilization, and greater service intensity in North America, among other areas, all of which should lead to higher revenues and wider margins in the future, hence how the company believes it can grow earnings per share at a 25% clip this year.

Lightning RoundTonight's Lighting Round Picks: 

  PBF Energy, Inc. (PBF)

Jim: quote markOkay, these are refiners. Boy, I've got to tell you, that Enterprise Product (Partners) is doing an ethane cracker down there, for a refiner that's just extraordinary. I like the refiners. But you're going to have a drop dead point where they're going to announce the earnings in the first week of May, and then you've got to sell. My favorite though is Valero. Holly Frontier is second.

  Manitowoc Corp. (MTW)

Jim: quote markOh man, they're both good. Middleby's more a momentum stock. MTW, I've got to tell you, that is a Get Rich Carefully split-up situation. They still haven't split up and all the stock does is go higher. I'm going to say, I like both of them.

  Solar City, Inc. (SCTY)

Jim: quote markSolar City is okay. I actually like their business model. Do you know that I actually like SunEdison, and you know I'm a believer in First Solar. Although First Solar has different technology. SunEdison, First Solar and Solar City, I'm saying thumbs up. You've got a three-fer.
