It is a different market out there than it was just one month ago, Cramer said. The game has changed; and it appears that fear and volatility are the new regime, at least for time being. So what's your best bet? Stay diversified. While it is no cure-all to capital preservation, it is the best hope in an uncertain time.

XTO is the best oil & gas driller in America, Cramer said, and that bull market is not over.

They’re both tech but one is hardware and one is software, so Cramer is willing to bless it."
