Give Your Portfolio Some Energy

When it comes to picking stocks, Cramer prefers names that boast both high growth and a high yield.

Linn Energy , for example, sports a 6.8 percent dividend yield. The natural gas producer is a limited liability company, too, meaning roughly 90 percent of its dividend payment is tax deferred. It also continues to show signs of growth, going from a handful of wells in 2003 to become a top-20 independent oil and gas producer today. In 2010, Linn increased production by more than 20 percent. At present, 36 percent of Linn's production is in oil, 48 percent is in natural gas and 16 percent is in nat gas liquids.

Despite challenges facing both the oil and natural gas markets, Cramer thinks this company has a bright future. But to learn more, he invited CEO Mark Ellis to appear on "Mad Money." Check out the video to see the full interview.
