Why Cramer Likes MarkWest Energy

In a tumultuous market like this, Cramer likes to circle the wagons around his favorite long-term themes that have been working. Take the oil and gas drilling boom in this country, the “Mad Money” host said.

“All the new production here in America [has] created a tremendous amount of demand for new pipelines," he said, “as well as gathering and processing infrastructure that’s needed to remove contaminants from natural gas, in addition to separating nat gas from nat gas liquids like ethane and propane.”

That’s why he likes MarkWest Energy Partners , a master limited partnership that gathers, processes and transports natural gas from many of the key U.S. shale plays. It also pays a 5.95 percent yield.

To get a better idea about the company’s prospects, Cramer spoke with Chairman and CEO Frank Semple. Watch the video to see the full interview.
