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 Friday's "Mad Money" show fared today.
JPMorgan ( JPM): According to Cramer, the fundamentals always win, and he pointed to stocks such as Action Alerts PLUS name JPMorgan and WellPoint ( WLP), which he said even attacks from Washington couldn't keep down. On Monday, JPMorgan slid 14 cents, or 0.3%, to close at $41.83, while WellPoint added 19 cents, or 0.3%, to close at $62.06. Apple ( AAPL): Cramer said Apple is way too cheap, despite the bears' hatred of the stock. On Monday, Apple closed up $4.37, or 2.1%, at $209.99. CSX ( CSX): Cramer spoke with CSX Chairman, President and CEO Michael Ward, who highlighted the company's appetite for steel, which he said has turned the country into a coal importer. China has bought more than 5 million tons of coal recently, said Ward. Ward also pointed to apparent rebounds in autos, metals steel and fertilizers, but not in lumber. He said Washington's new railroad safety regulations are affecting CSX's growth, but the company is complying with them. Cramer reiterated his support for CSX and called the stock a buy. On Monday, CSX gained 86 cents, or 1.8%, to close at $48.32. Want more Cramer? Check out Jim's rules and commandments for investing from his latest book by clicking here.
