(Updated with closing stock prices.)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 fared today.
Caterpillar ( CAT): Cramer said that Caterpillar's cost-cutting measures are ruthless and pointed to the stock's bit rise over the past several days. On Wednesday, Caterpillar closed down 80 cents, or 2%, at $38.66 Apple ( AAPL): Cramer said Apple's earnings results are a sign of strength and will further fuel the tech rally. On Wednesday, Apple added $5.23, or 3.5%, to close at $156.74. Las Vegas Sands ( LVS): Cramer preferred Wynn Resorts ( WYNN) to Las Vegas Sands because Wynn's Macau IPO will happen before LVS's. Also, financing concerns have forced LVS to halt five Macau projects. On Wednesday, Las Vegas Sands closed up 51 cents, or 5.2%, at $10.25, while Wynn added $2.49, or 6.3%, to $42.26.
Frontline ( FRO): Cramer said he'd get out of Frontline and into Nordic American Tanker ( NAT). On Wednesday, Frontline lost 42 cents, or 2%, to close at $21.02, while NAT slid 5 cents at $30.75. Verizon ( VZ): Cramer liked Verizon's dividend and recommended it at under $29 a share. On Wednesday, Verizion closed down 19 cents, or 0.6%, at $30.13.
