Cramer's 'Mad Money' Follow-Up: Feb. 12

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 Thursday's "Mad Money" show fared today.


Apple ( AAPL): Cramer used Apple as an example of how company fundamentals matter less to the market right now than China, Greece and oil prices. That's why Apple rallied on Thursday, coinciding with a copper rally and positive news from Greece, rather than earlier in the week on news that Apple has 25% of the smartphone market and other company-specific news.

Since Apple doesn't depend on global growth, Cramer said, so Apple would have been a buy on the down days this week because of its fundamentals.

On Friday, Apple closed up $1.71, or 0.9%, at $200.38.

Garmin ( GRMN): Cramer put Garmin in his Sell Block on Thursday, explaining that built-in smartphone navigation systems are threatening Garmin's standalone navigation system business. He said that without personal navigation, Garmin is worth about $26 a share. He told viewers to sell the stock.

On Friday, Garmin lost 47 cents, or 1.5%, to close at $31.95.

Rollins ( ROL): Rollins was Cramer's Thursday addition to his list of dividend-boosting stocks. Rollins increased its shareholder payout by 28% last week to 9 cents a share for a yield of 1.8%.

Cramer had more positive things to say about Rollins, including that it has 14 overseas franchises, but he told viewers to wait for a pullback before buying because Rollins is near its 52-week high.

On Friday, Rollins added 56 cents, or 2.9%, to close at $20.12.

L-1 Identity Solutions ( ID): Cramer took L-1 out of the penalty box, where he'd put it in January. He liked that the company was exploring strategic alternatives.

On Friday, L-1 closed up 22 cents, or 2.7%, at $8.41.

Flir Systems ( FLIR): Cramer said that the dip in Flir's stock presented a buying opportunity.

On Friday, Flir slid 80 cents, or 2.9%, to close at $26.92.
