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.
I never shirk from admitting my mistakes; instead, I dwell on them to learn from them. I change my mind, I take losses, I own up to them
," Cramer has said.
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
Tuesday's "Mad Money" show
(INTC - Get Report)
: Cramer's colleague Dan Fitzpatrick said based on its chart, Intel is a buy under $20 a share. Cramer agreed and called himself an "Intel-aholic." He said Intel, which he owns for his
Action Alerts PLUS
charitable trust, is in the best shape it's ever been.
On Wednesday, Intel added 3 cents to close at $21.08.
: Cramer also recommended Cooper, another Action Alerts PLUS name, as a way to play the smart-grid market. He liked the company's balance sheet and that 88% of its revenue comes from electrical products.
On Wednesday, Cooper slid 7 cents to close at $43.70.
: Telvent was Cramer's recommendation for a speculative way to play smart-grid technology. He liked that in addition to its business making smart energy meters, Telvent deals in oil and gas delivery, transportation and agriculture systems. He felt more comfortable recommending the company since only 40% of the company is now owned by a Spanish conglomerate.
