Cramer's 'Mad Money' Follow-Up: July 30

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 Wednesday's "Mad Money" show fared today.


Potash ( POT): Cramer emphasized China's influence, particularly when it comes to the fertilizer industry. He said China is now in control of commodities such as steel, copper and fertilizer, which explains why commodity stocks have gone lower recently along with the Shanghai composite index.

Cramer liked Potash and said only 12% of its sales come from China. He predicted a recovery for the stock and a healthy long-term future, but he warned that the stock will probably go lower first before it turns. On Thursday, Potash added $2.79, or 3%, to close at $94.87.

Agnico-Eagle Mines ( AEM): Cramer likes Agnico-Eagle for its low production costs and plans for expansion. He said that gold keeps improving and that this stock is his favorite in the group. On Thursday, Agnico-Eagle closed up $3.61, or 6.9%, at $55.95.

ConAgra Foods ( CAG): Cramer spoke with ConAgra President and CEO Gary Rodkin, who said the company has improved over the past year and has shed some of its products, giving it better brand focus. He also said that ConAgra's dividend is safe. Cramer said he liked the stock. On Thursday, ConAgra added 2 cents to $19.71.

Chipotle Mexican Grill ( CMG): On his "Lightning Round" segment, Cramer said that Chipotle is "on fire" but advised waiting for a pullback before buying. On Thursday, Chipotle slipped 27 cents, or 0.3%, to close at $94.02.

XTO Energy ( XTO): Cramer called XTO is the "single-best natural gas stock out here." On Thursday, it gained $1.30, or 3.4%, to $39.92.

RadioShack ( RSH): Cramer called RadioShack a "second-tier player" and recommended Best Buy ( BBY) instead. On Thursday, RadioShack closed up 4 cents at $15.43, while Best Buy fell 24 cents to $36.73.

Pantry ( PTRY): Cramer said he wasn't a fan. Instead, he liked Cracker Barrel Old Country Store ( CBRL) and Buffalo Wild Wings ( BWLD). On Thursday, Pantry added 69 cents, or 4.2%, to $17.19; Cracker Barrel closed up 54 cents, or 1.9%, at $29.52; and BWW added 85 cents, or 2.2%, to $39.51.
