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.
Sequenom ( SQNM): Cramer said that with the stock up double in recent weeks, he'd be listening to Sequenom's conference call today before deciding how he felt about the company's future prospects. On Monday, Sequenom slid 5 cents, or 0.6%, to close at $7.76. Sunstone Hotel Investors ( SHO): Sunstone was Cramer's Speculation Friday pick. He pointed out that the CFO of the hotel investment trust had just bought almost 6,000 shares of the stock in the open market. Only one of 12 analysts who cover the stock rates it a buy, but Cramer said the stock was worth considering if the CFO had that much confidence in it. On Monday, Sunstone lost 5 cents, or 0.5%, to close at $9.92. PetMed Express ( PETS): Cramer called PetMed the Amazon ( AMZN) of the pet world. Its method of making pet supplies and medications available for online purchase makes pet care easier and cheaper, said Cramer. He told viewers not to chase the stock higher but to wait for a pullback. On Monday, PetMed added $1.44, or 6.9%, to close at $22.36. Agnico-Eagle Mines ( AEM): In his "Lightning Round" segment, Cramer called Agnico-Eagle "terrific" but said that "seasonally this is not a good time to buy gold." On Monday, Agnico-Eagle closed off 35 cents, or 0.6%, at $57.99. Want more Cramer? Check out Jim's rules and commandments for investing from his latest book by clicking here.
