Is Range Resources Worth Its Premium Price?

Cramer may have his reasons for liking natural gas – mainly it’s cleaner and more plentiful in the US than crude or coal – but in the end what we care about most is the money, he said on Wednesday. Over the past decade or two, these stocks have delivered spectacular returns, and that’s why the Mad Money host keeps returning to them.

Range Resources has been mentioned on the show more than a few times. Cramer today called RRC among the best in the industry and talked up the stock’s over 200 percent jump during the past five years and about 2,500 percent in the last 10. Those results are better even than tough competitors like Chesapeake Energy , Devon Energy , Apache , Anadarko Petroleum and EQT .

Attribute those stellar numbers to RRC's growing reserves, significant production growth and low-cost operations. There’s also the company’s shale exposure, too, with wells in the Barnett and Marcellus. In fact, Range Resources was the first to drill in the Marcellus back in 2004.

It’s no wonder then that RRC trades at a premium to its peers. But Cramer wanted to look forward, not back, and find out if the company would continue to outperform. So invited he Chairman and CEO John Pinkerton onto the show for an interview. Watch the video.
