Even after a fifth day of declines, Jim Cramer said it's still not time to throw in the towel. He said the many negatives: weak unemployment, low business confidence, declining Chinese imports and the mess that is the Italian bond market are already factored into the market. Also, the markets have had an incredible run since September and are due for a pullback. But what's not factored into the markets, said Cramer, are earnings and earnings surprises like those delivered by Alcoa (AA). The markets are also sending all stocks lower, which creates opportunities for the sectors that don't deserve that punishment. Cramer said he simply cannot be bearish on restaurants or retail when oil prices are likely to retreat, nor can he be bearish on high-growth stocks or on companies that prosper when their fuel costs are falling. OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer and colleague Tim Collins went over the health of the overall market as seen through a technician's eyes. Collins used a recent chart of the S&P 500 to note that the index took a turn for the worse Tuesday after it fell below a key level of 1370. He said after that point, sector after sector began to get crushed as the selling intensified. Collins noted that the S&P Homebuilder ETF (XHB) looked as if it was going to test its 50-day moving average once again and bounce higher, but after Tuesday's action, the chart has now turned ugly. Collins noted similar patterns with the S&P Retail ETF (XRT), SPDR Financial ETF (XLF) and the SPDR Technology ETF (XLK), all of which showed a shimmer of hope until Tuesday's selling gained steam. Cramer recommends that investors stick with the fundamentals of individual high-growth stocks and use a longer time horizon. Next, Cramer reminded viewers, as he once again highlighted Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) as a quality growth company that investors should consider for their portfolios. Even after Tuesday's selloff, shares of Chipotle are only 2% off their 52-week high. Cramer told viewers not to chase Chipotle shares higher and to instead wait for a market pullback, and buy in on the cheap over time. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with John Schiller, chairman and CEO of Energy XXI (EXXI), a little-known oil driller that is proving there's still a lot of money to be made drilling for oil. With oil prices near record levels, the oil fields purchased from Exxon-Mobil (XOM) just a few years ago are now windfalls for Energy XXI. Schiller said he sees oil trading between $115 and $140 a barrel longer term. Cramer said that Energy XXI, while not a household name, is one oil driller that should be on every investor's radar. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer opined on the sudden departure of Best Buy's (BBY) CEO. Cramer has been negative on Best Buy for ages, and agrees with many who feel that the company may not survive its battle with online retailers who can sell their commodity items for less money and often without sales tax. Cramer also agreed that Best Buy squandered its cash by spending $1.5B to buy back shares. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) MON; HEK; BRCM; OC. (Bearish) SU; AMAT; VVUS; SGI. Reference Link

05:18 EDTXOMExxon Mobil CEO says U.S. needs to 'make regulatory process less burdensome'
The U.S. government needs to adjust its energy policies to ensure that America can realize all the benefits of the new era of energy abundance, Rex Tillerson, chairman and CEO of Exxon Mobil said Thursday. “We need sound energy policies – policies equal to the innovation that has redefined the modern energy landscape,” Tillerson said in an address to The Economic Club of Washington. “It is time to build policies that reflect our newfound abundance – that view the future with optimism, that recognize the power of free markets to drive innovation, and that proceed with the conviction that free trade brings prosperity and progress.” As examples, Tillerson said that Congress and the White House need to enable U.S. exports of oil and natural gas, approve the Keystone XL pipeline, and make the regulatory process less burdensome and more transparent. “With free trade in energy and common-sense regulatory reforms, the U.S. energy industry can strengthen U.S. energy security and continue to pioneer the innovations that make possible the safe and responsible development of energy,” Tillerson said. “No one can say for sure how the industry will evolve next or where it will go – but one of the enduring lessons of our industry is that sound policy rewards wide and disciplined investments, spurs economic growth and improved environmental performance, and leads to greater peace and prosperity.” A major driver in the industry’s expansion, Tillerson said, has been breakthroughs in the integration of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, a renaissance that is now bringing economic benefits to all 48 states in the continental U.S. along with unanticipated environmental gains. “Because natural gas emits up to 60 percent less carbon dioxide than other major sources when used for power generation, our abundant and reliable supplies have been instrumental in reducing our nation’s carbon dioxide emissions to levels not seen since the early 1990s,” Tillerson said. He noted that industry has a responsibility to meet the two-pronged challenge of providing for the world's energy needs while protecting the environment. “The global economy will need sound economic reasoning and more sensible policies to fully leverage this moment to meet the energy and environmental challenges of the future,” said Tillerson.

12:05 EDTXOMExxon Mobil resumes drilling at Point Thomson
ExxonMobil announced that it has resumed drilling at Point Thomson on Alaska’s North Slope as construction continues toward bringing the initial production system online. The initial production system is designed to produce up to 10,000 barrels per day of natural gas condensate and is scheduled for startup in 2016. Two injection wells will work in tandem with a production well, cycling up to 200M cubic feet of natural gas per day through an onsite central processing facility. The condensate will then be transported by a 22-mile pipeline to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System. The Point Thomson reservoir holds an estimated 8T cubic feet of natural gas and associated condensate, a high quality hydrocarbon similar to kerosene or diesel. The gas represents 25% of known gas resources on the North Slope and could be used to partially underpin the proposed Alaska LNG project. Potential future development will depend on a range of factors such as business considerations, investment climate and the fiscal and regulatory environment. As of year-end 2014, ExxonMobil and working interest owners have invested more than $2.6B in the development of Point Thomson. About 70% of that amount has been spent in Alaska. More than 70 Alaska companies have contributed to the success of the project, with more than 800 people working on-site and an additional several hundred around the state. Winter construction continues with the opening of a 50-mile ice road from Deadhorse to central pad. Point Thomson is located on state acreage along the Beaufort Sea, 60 miles east of Prudhoe Bay and 60 miles west of the village of Kaktovik.
