TheStreet's Jim Cramer talked about his upcoming CNBC earnings interview with the CEO of Alcoa (AA) as corporate earnings reporting season kicks off today with Alcoa's results. Cramer said he'll watch to see if CEOs talk less about the strong dollar as they report their numbers. The strong dollar has been a headwind for many international companies, but with the currency weakening, Cramer believes there could be upside earnings surprises for some companies. Cramer said one of those companies could be Alphabet (GOOGL) , which is held in the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio that he manages. Cramer also commented on rising oil prices, saying they have helped stocks like Chevron (CVX) recover. Cramer likes Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and said Schlumberger (SLB) shares could climb to $90 in this environment.
