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.


Amazon.com ( AMZN - Get Report): Even though the bears hate Amazon, said Cramer, the stock is up nearly 250% for the year, and Cramer said it still has room to grow by 74 points. He reminded viewers of the stock's 1,449% move in the late '90s.

On Thursday, Amazon lost $1.08, or 0.8%, to close at $141.17.

Inergy ( NRGY): Cramer identified a strong but quiet bull market in propane and urged viewers not to ignore it. He said propane stocks had gained 19% since the beginning of July, and he also liked their average 8.4% yield. His favorite propane stock was Inergy, followed by AmeriGas ( APU).

On Thursday, Inergy added 93 cents, or 2.8%, to $34.17, while AmeriGas gained 58 cents, or 1.5%, to $38.50.

Best Buy ( BBY - Get Report) : Cramer recommended Best Buy ahead of its Dec. 15 earnings report. He said Best Buy is gearing up to report a blowout quarter, partly due to positive news from companies such as Nokia ( NOK - Get Report), Apple ( AAPL - Get Report), Corning ( GLW - Get Report) and Microsoft ( MSFT - Get Report). "It's a gadget Christmas, and Best Buy has the goods," he said. He said the stock is still cheap.

On Thursday, Best Buy closed up 41 cents, or 1%, at $43.54. Nokia lost 19 cents, or 1.5%, to close at $12.75; Apple added 25 cents, or 0.3%, to $196.48; Corning closed off 23 cents, or 1.3%, at $17.59; and Microsoft added 5 cents, or 0.2%, to $29.83.

JPMorgan ( JPM - Get Report): In his "Lightning Round" segment, Cramer called JPMorgan the "best-run, best-capitalized company" and said he'd just bought more of the stock for his Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust.

On Thursday, JPMorgan lost 53 cents, or 1.3%, to close at $41.40.
