The Big Guys Live: Exxon (NYSE:XOM)

With oil prices at their lowest level in five years, one would think all oil stocks are plummeting. It just isn't happening with the big players like Exxon (XOM) that can afford to cut production growth and has its production hedged. Exxon could afford to buy some of these distressed producers at bargain basement prices. Exxon will continue to perform well, no matter the commodity price.

Denny's (NASDAQ:DENN) Is on a Comeback Rage

Denny's (DENN) is combating the onslaught against traditional dining plays with making smart business decisions. In addition to benefiting from falling oil prices, the company has undergone a major turnaround. Denny's is moving toward a franchise model, and as a result, has been able to deal with its huge debt load. It is also expanding into healthier menu options. DENN is also undertaking a massive remodeling campaign. Cramer feels Denny's is in the early stages of a comeback.
