Cramer's 'Mad Money' Follow-Up: March 17

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 Wednesday's "Mad Money" show fared today.


J. Crew ( JCG): Cramer told viewers that it can be just as important to learn about the "stories behind the products" as it is to study a company's balance sheet and earnings estimates. In J. Crew's case, he said, the company's products have a loyal fan base, and the company is growing in areas such as wedding and men's apparel. Cramer called the stock, which has risen 386% since its 2009 lows, a buy.

On Thursday, J. Crew lost 3 cents to close at $45.02.

Nstar ( NST): Cramer gave shares of Nstar, Massachusetts' largest utility, his blessing. He particularly liked its dividend, and he said the company should not suffer due to proposed carbon legislation.

On Thursday, Nstar closed up 2 cents at $35.60.

AT&T ( T): In his "Lightning Round" segment, Cramer called AT&T a "great stock" and told viewers to stick with it.

On Thursday, AT&T added 16 cents, or 0.6%, to close at $26.06.

Tupperware ( TUP): Cramer said Tupperware is a "winner," and he told viewers the stock is headed higher.

On Thursday, Tupperware gave up 95 cents, or 2%, to close at $47.46.

Sprint ( S): Cramer could not recommend Sprint. "I'm going to have to say no to that one," he said. "I just don't think it's good."

On Thursday, Sprint closed up 19 cents, or 5.3%, at $3.80.
