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
Tuesday's "Mad Money" show fared today.
Walter Energy(WLT): Cramer again recommended Walter Energy as a play on demand for coal in China to produce more steel.
On Wednesday, Walter Energy added $1.03, or 1.1%, to close at $92.33.
Oracle(ORCL - Get Report): Cramer said he liked Oracle ahead of its earnings report. He also reiterated his buy on
Apple(AAPL), which he owns for his
Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust.
On Wednesday, Oracle closed off 23 cents, or 0.9%, at $25.76, while Apple gained $1.01, or 0.4%, to $229.37.
Google(GOOG - Get Report): Cramer said that while he likes Google's search and advertising businesses and it has sustained limited revenue loss from China so far, it stands to lose a lot more, since China might have represented as much as $6 billion in revenue by 2014. He said Google was a buy, but only on weakness.
On Wednesday, Google closed up $8.33, or 1.5%, at $557.33.
Baidu(BIDU - Get Report): Baidu, on the other hand, stands to benefit from Google's departure from China, Cramer said. Baidu could see an earnings boost of 35%, and even though the stock's already up on the news, he still called it a buy.
On Wednesday, Baidu added $13.62, or 2.3%, to close at $608.50.
Chevron(CVX - Get Report): In his
"Lightning Round" segment, Cramer told viewers that he had to sell Chevron for Action Alerts PLUS. "Oil is not acting that well, and we need more yield," he said. He recommended Action Alerts PLUS name
BP(BP - Get Report) instead.
On Wednesday, Chevron shed 84 cents, or 1.1%, to $73.93, while BP closed down 72 cents, or 1.2%, at $57.23.
