"Anadarko was the first big oil deal this year, but I bet it won't be the last," CNBC's Jim Cramer says. "We've simply got too many publicly traded companies, something that's only going to get worse as more and more privately held unicorns, like Pinterest tonight, keep coming public," he says. CNBC's Jim Cramer on Wednesday said investors could expect to see more mergers and acquisitions in the energy and oil space in 2019.
