Editor's note: The following are questions received from viewers of "Mad Money," seen every weekday at 6 p.m. EST on CNBC.

I'm a teenager, trying to make some mad money! I've held Microsoft (MSFT) - Get Free Report for a couple of years and was wondering if I should just cut my losses now?-- Ryan from California

Jim Cramer

: I also hold Microsoft shares in my

ActionAlertsPLUS charitable trust and have been similarly disappointed with the stock's recent action.

Mr. Softee is essentially flat since it paid the big $3-a-share special dividend, though I don't believe the market is giving the company much credit yet for a strong Xbox 360 launch.

Can shares of JDSU (JDSU) move higher this year?-- Heather from Connecticut

last Thursday's show.
