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 Tuesday's "Mad Money" show fared today.
Ford ( F): Cramer cautioned viewers not to always give in to the urge to find new stocks to invest in. For example, he said he's sticking with Ford, which saw a 43% jump in monthly sales. He also pointed to the company's innovation and cost-cutting measure. Nevertheless, he said, people keep asking him about Toyota ( TM), which he said he'd sell. No other automaker has the momentum that Ford has, he said. On Wednesday, Ford added 47 cents, or 3.9%, to close at $12.69. JDS Uniphase ( JDSU): Cramer's colleague Dan Fitzpatrick recommended waiting for a pullback before buying the stock, which is up 54% since Cramer's last recommendation in November 2009. Cramer said the company's fundamentals are strong, and he called JDS Uniphase a networking powerhouse. Quarterly sales rose 11%, Cramer said, and he recommended buying half a position now and waiting for weakness to buy the other half. On Wednesday, JDS Uniphase closed up 17 cents, or 1.5%, at $11.28. Anadarko Petroleum ( APC): Cramer spoke with Anadarko Chairman and CEO Jim Hackett, who pointed to how important it is for Anadarko to be a global player in the oil and gas market, which helps the company manage risk and increases its growth. Hackett said he was bullish long-term on natural gas, though he predicted weakness for the fuel in the short term. Cramer once again gave his support for Hackett and Anadarko.
