Typically, this stock gets hit almost every time it reports. And Cramer is hoping it happens again.
"That's because the stock always seems to work its way higher," Cramer said. "I don't know if you'll get a post-quarter sell-off this time, but if people find something to dislike, I'd buy."
The stock Cramer's talking about is Core Labs, the maker of proprietary technology that helps oil companies figure out where to drill.
It's one of many companies that stand to benefit from the vast reserves of oil and gas discovered across the nation. (That's one of Cramer's top themes for 2013.)
