This week, Cramer stated that the new presidential administration makes 2017 an ideal time for deal making, so some anticipated mergers and acquisitions will likely come to fruition. Cramer and his research team suggest Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which makes chips in the gaming area of semiconductors, is likely to be bought by Micron Technology Inc. (MU). Micron's stock price has been stuck in the teens, but can see huge growth if they acquire the double-digit AMD, as well as expand their reach beyond the markets of cell phones and tablets.
In the oil and gas sector, Cramer believes Apache Corp. is to be acquired by Occidental Petroleum Corp. In the housing sector, Cramer thinks PulteGroup should acquire homebuilder KB Home to solve its lack of growth. And in the fragmented auto industry, Cramer thinks Advance Auto Parts Inc. is a "natural fit" for its competitor, O'Reilly Automotive.
