While CNBC's Jim Cramer continues to avoid fossil fuel stocks, there are a few oil names he likes.

The "Mad Money" host pointed to Pioneer Natural Resources and Chevron as two energy shares to buy.

"I had said that oil was uninvestable," Cramer said Wednesday on "Halftime Report." "These companies have heeded the call. They recognized that their old ways are no good, and they're becoming better corporate citizens."
