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

Monday's "Mad Money" show

fared today.

Citigroup

(C) - Get Citigroup Inc. Report

TheStreet Recommends

: Cramer said that speculators were responsible for Citigroup's 25-cent jump at Monday's open and that it was too quick an increase. He still liked the stock long-term but advised viewers to wait for a pullback before buying.

On Tuesday, Citigroup closed down 7 cents, or 1.5%, at $4.75.

Fannie Mae

( FNM) ,

Freddie Mac

( FRE): Cramer said there's a lot of speculation surrounding Fannie and Freddie, as well, with people hoping the stocks will make them money fast, even though it's not clear yet how much the companies owe the government.

On Tuesday, Fannie added 16 cents, or 9.4%, to $1.86, while Freddie picked up a penny to close at $2.06.

Anadarko Petroleum

(APC) - Get Anadarko Petroleum Corporation Report

: Cramer spoke with CEO Jim Hackett, who predicted a major role for natural gas in the nation's economy. Cramer also likes natural gas, and he recommended Anadarko.

On Tuesday, Anadarko slid 39 cents, or 0.7%, to close at $54.01.

TJX

(TJX) - Get TJX Companies Inc Report

: Cramer considered TJX in his search for a best-of-breed retailer. He praised the company's business model of selling other retailers' excess inventory at a discount. It appeared to have a stellar quarter, with a 4% jump in same-store sales and a 4% decrease in inventories. But with shares up 64% and most analysts already rating TJX a buy, he questioned how much upside it could have, and he said its conference call was one of the quarter's least-hopeful for the second half of the year.

On Tuesday, TJX added $1.26, or 3.6%, to $36.64.

Hudson City Bancorp

(HCBK)

: In his

"Lightning Round" segment

, Cramer said that Hudson City is "playing it safe and is not being aggressive enough."

On Tuesday, Hudson City lost 36 cents, or 2.7%, to close at $12.82.

Sony

(SNE) - Get Sony Corp. Report

: Cramer said he'd sell Sony and preferred

Taiwan Semiconductor

(TSM) - Get Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. Report

or

Corning

(GLW) - Get Corning Inc Report

.

On Tuesday, Sony closed up 26 cents, or 1%, at $26.84, while Taiwan Semiconductor was off 2 cents, or 0.2%, at $10.76, and Corning closed added 25 cents, or 1.6%, to $16.17.
