23:12 EDTWM, CMG, DNDN, AAPL, CVX, BRKBJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer told viewers of his "Mad Money" show Tuesday evening, "Get used to stocks trading on growth -- growth generates earnings and earnings makes stocks trade higher." He said, with strong fundamentals and a tailwind from the Chinese economy, the U.S. is strong enough to take on just about anything Europe can dish out. Add to that India, which surprised the world by cutting interest rates Tuesday. "it's no wonder U.S. stocks were off to the races once again," Cramer said. Cramer said whether it's retail, technology or aerospace, things are simply better in America and the markets are just reflecting that fact. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer once again sat down with Charif Souki, chairman and CEO of Cheniere Energy (LNG), who just received government approval to begin construction of a natural gas export terminal in Louisiana. Shares on Cheniere are up 115% since Cramer first spoke with Souki in June 2010. Cramer continued his support for Cheniere. Then, Cramer went on-location with David Steiner, president and CEO of Waste Management (WM), at one of the company's many natural gas filling stations. Waste Management is currently a leader in using natural gas for its trash trucks and almost 90% of its purchases this year will be natural gas vehicles. Cramer reiterated his recommendation. OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer went and colleague Mark Sebastian went head to head to determine whether the recent spate of market volatility is anything to worry about. Sebastian noted that the period of volatility ended months ago and the market's current spike in volatility is not a sign of another rocky period. Cramer said this is a sign that things are looking pretty good for the markets and investors shouldn't let the bears ruin their confidence. "We are not headed to another period of volatility," he concluded.Cramer took a few moments to comment on the news that billionaire investor Warren Buffett has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He said that while some investors worry about the fate of Berkshire Hathaway (BRKB), he is not among them. Cramer likened Buffett to Steve Jobs at Apple (AAPL), saying that Buffett has given much thought to his legacy and has three terrific candidates in the wings if, or when, the time arises. As for the company itself, after struggling with exposure to housing, Cramer said that Berkshire is now in terrific shape. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) CMG; CVX. (Beaish) DNDN. Reference Link

08:38 EDTCVXChevron reports Q4 net oil-equivalent production 2.67M boepd
Worldwide net oil-equivalent production was 2.67M barrels per day in fourth quarter 2015, up from 2.58M barrels per day in the 2014 fourth quarter. U.S. upstream operations incurred a loss of $1.95B in fourth quarter 2015 compared to earnings of $432M from a year earlier. The decrease was due to lower crude oil realizations, higher depreciation expenses, higher exploration expenses and lower gains on asset sales, partially offset by higher crude oil production. The increase in depreciation and exploration expenses was primarily due to impairments and project cancellations. The company's average sales price per barrel of crude oil and natural gas liquids was $35 in fourth quarter 2015, down from $66 a year ago. The average sales price of natural gas was $1.54 per thousand cubic feet, compared with $3.34 in last year's fourth quarter.
08:35 EDTCVXChevron added about 1.02B barrels of net oil-equivalent proved reserves in 2015
Chevron said that the company added approximately 1.02 billion barrels of net oil-equivalent proved reserves in 2015. These additions, which are subject to final reviews, equate to approximately 107 percent of net oil-equivalent production for the year. The largest additions were from production entitlement effects in several locations and drilling results for the Permian Basin in the United States and the Wheatstone Project in Australia. At year-end, balances of cash, cash equivalents, time deposits and marketable securities totaled $11.3B, a decrease of $1.9B from the end of 2014. Total debt at December 31, 2015 stood at $38.6B, an increase of $10.8B from a year earlier.
08:33 EDTCVXChevron Q4 earnings include impairments and other charges of $1.1B
"Our 2015 earnings were down significantly from the previous year, reflecting a nearly 50% year-on-year decline in crude oil prices. We're taking significant action to improve earnings and cash flow in this low price environment. Operating expenses and capital spending were reduced $9B in 2015 from 2014, and I expect similarly large reductions again in 2016. In addition, asset sales proceeds were $6B in 2015, with additional sales planned for 2016 and 2017," said Chairman and CEO John Watson.

08:28 EDTAAPLEnergous rises after Apple said to be at work on wireless charging
A Bloomberg report that said Apple (AAPL) is working with partners in the U.S. and Asia to develop new wireless charging technology did not mention Energous (WATT), which is a development-stage company exploring technology that can enable wire-free charging for electronic devices. In pre-market trading, Energous shares rose 10% to $5.25.
07:36 EDTCVXAnalysts still predicting mergers as oil slump drags on, WSJ reports
Bankers and analysts have been predicting a wave of merger activity will come almost since crude prices began to fall from over $100 a barrel, but the only big acquisition by an oil major so far has been Shell's (RDS.A) purchase of BG Group (BRGYY), said The Wall Street Journal, which added that analysts still believe deal-making is likely to return this year if prices continue to languish. With Chevron (CVX) set to report today and its big peers soon to follow, analysts are expecting the four biggest publicly traded Western oil companies to have their weakest combined profits since 1998, the Journal noted. The report noted that U.S. shale oil producers, such as Apache (APA) and Whiting Petroleum (WLL), were previously targeted though potential sellers were reluctant to accept offers as they hoped for a rebound in oil prices and potential buyers wondered if any deal struck would look expensive if crude prices fell further, but "both impediments are gone now," the Journal contends.
