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.
Dell ( DELL): Cramer criticized Dell's acquisition of Perot Systems ( PER) and contrasted it with Hewlett-Packard's ( HPQ) acquisition last year of EDS, which Cramer said was a much better move. (Cramer owns Hewlett-Packared for his Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust.) On Tuesday, Dell lost 28 cents, or 1.8%, to close at $15.73, while Hewlett-Packard added 66 cents, or 1.4%, to $47.01. PPG Industries ( PPG): Cramer spoke with PPG Chairman and CEO Charles Bunch, who said things have certainly improved at PPG over the past few months. Cramer praised Bunch and recommended PPG, which he owns for Action Alerts PLUS, as a buy. On Tuesday, PPG gained 43 cents, or 0.7%, to $60.12. Wynn Resorts ( WYNN): Cramer said the hottest IPO of the season is Wynn's spinoff of 25% of its Macau properties, but he said the best way to play it is with Wynn itself, up 70% since he recommended it on July 21. He said profit-taking ahead of the IPO will be the sign to buy Wynn and that the stock has "room to go higher." He gave the stock a $90 price target after a pullback to $64 or $65.
