NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Every night on "Mad Money," Jim Cramer offers market commentary and general investment advice, and he makes calls on specific stocks, both of his own choosing and in response to viewer requests. He relies on his many years of experience and strong track record, and he takes full responsibility for his calls.
Here we track some of his calls from the previous episode of "Mad Money" and find out, at least in the very short term, how the stocks are performing. Keep in mind that Cramer might not have been recommending that viewers take immediate action on a stock. And, of course, it's up to the individual investor to do his or her own homework.
That said, here's how some of the stocks that Cramer talked about on Thursday's "Mad Money" show fared today.
Citigroup (C - Get Report): Cramer offered several reasons to buy Citigroup. For one, it's cheap, he said, and it's getting rid of its bad loans. He also gave his support to the company's management, which he said is capable of turning Citigroup around. On Friday, Citigroup added 5 cents, or 1.3%, to close at $3.85. Embotelladora Andina (AKO.B): Cramer added Embotelladora Andina, a Chilean bottler, to his "Foreign Legion" portfolio. The company has 67% of the market share in Chile, 51% in Argentina and 57% in Brazil. He said the company has growth potential. On Friday, Emobtelladora Andina closed up 65 cents, or 3.8%, at $17.90. Linn Energy (LINE - Get Report): After talking with Chairman and CEO Michael Linn, Cramer called Linn Energy a "moneymaker" and a Buy.
