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.
Bemis ( BMS): Cramer recommended Bemis because it knows "how to take advantage of weaker competitors." A secondary offering of 7.5 million shares will enable the packaging company to buy a unit of Rio Tinto ( RTP) that, due to Rio's debt, will go cheap. On Tuesday, Bemis added 4 cents to close at $27.13. hhgregg ( HGG): Cramer said hhgregg's a bargain and called it a buy at or below its secondary offering price. He likes the electronics retailer's business model and said it is benefiting from Circuit City's folding. On Tuesday, hhgregg closed up $1.35, or 7.9%, at $18.41. Ford ( F): In his "Lightning Round" segment, Cramer recommended Ford at under $6 a share. On Tuesday, Ford closed up a penny at $6.20.
