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.


J. Crew ( JCG): Cramer told viewer on Friday to buy J. Crew, which he called "the finest retailer in the country," ahead of its earnings. Cramer complimented J. Crew's management. He also said to consider buying Men's Wearhouse ( MW), pointing out the company's strong same-store sales growth.

On Monday, J. Crew closed up $1.79, or 3.9%, at $47.40, while Men's Wearhouse lost 33 cents, or 1.3%, to close at $24.84.

Carrizo Oil & Gas ( CRZO): Cramer recommended waiting to buy Carrizo as long as natural gas futures are trending lower.

On Monday, Carrizo lost 58 cents, or 2.2%, to close at $25.26.

Gentex ( GNTX): Cramer's Speculation Friday pick was Gentex, whose high-tech mirrors he said made it more like a tech company than an auto parts company. He called Gentex a solid performer with a pristine balance sheet. With the stock just off its 52-week high, Cramer told viewers not to chase it higher.

On Monday, Gentex added 3 cents, or 0.2%, to close at $20.36.

DreamWorks ( DWA): Cramer also liked DreamWorks, which he said was a great play on 3D films. Cramer pointed out that he recommended another 3D play, Cinemark ( CNK), on Feb. 5, and it's up 20% since. Cramer liked Dreamwork's earnings beat and double-digit quarterly growth, but he told viewers to wait for a pullback to buy.

On Monday, DreamWorks gave up a penny to close at $41.75.

Citigroup ( C): Cramer called Citigroup the last great Wall Street bargain and said CEO Vikram Pandit's performance last week in front of Congress was fantastic. Cramer reiterated his $12-in-2012 price target for the stock.

On Monday, Citigroup closed up 6 cents, or 1.7%, at $3.56.

Electronic Arts ( ERTS): Cramer said he'd still recommend Electronic Arts, although the stock has gone down a bit since he last gave it the thumbs up.

On Monday, Electronic Arts added 16 cents, or 0.9%, to close at $17.28.
