Cramer Waiting For Exxon, Looking For a Positive Close? (XOM, CVX)

The first thing that Cramer noted was Doug Kass, a perma-bear said he thinks we’ll close up on the markets today.  That’s his call according to Cramer.  Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) is one he’d buy at $83.00 or $84.00, but the oil names are in the belly.  Chevron (NYSE:CVX) did well and it got hit.

We’ll have to see if Jimbo’s level on Exxon Mobil is a good one or not.  Shares are still only down about $6.50 from new all-time highs, so even that huge sell-off is hard to just jump all over thinking you are getting a total steal on it.  Ultimately, oil stocks should follow their underlying commodity prices.  But we all know you can be right and still lose your shirt.
