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.


Best Buy ( BBY): Cramer said Best Buy is the key stock to watch on Thursday this week. He told viewers that while he made a mistake when he recommended Best Buy following disappointing guidance from the company, he know feels it should be firing on all cylinders.

On Monday, Best Buy added 21 cents, or 0.5%, to close at $41.20.

Oracle ( ORCL) : Cramer said he'd also be watching Oracle on Thursday this week and that it's the only stock he'd buy ahead of its earnings report.

On Monday, Oracle closed up 37 cents, or 1.5%, at $25.56.

Sonus Networks ( SONS): Sonus was Cramer's Speculation Friday pick. He said the telco-equipment company has seen three restructurings since its days at $8 a share in 2007, and the stock is finally looking attractive, with limited downside. Cramer noted that the company beat expectations in its last quarter, and it boasts a diverse customer base.

On Monday, Sonus added 5 cents, or 2%, to close at $2.61.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters ( GMCR): In his "Lightning Round" segment, Cramer said GMCR was a "good" stock and predicted it would go "much higher in the future." "It's a fabulous business model," he said.

On Monday, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters gained $1.89, or 2%, to close at $95.79.

Wendy's/Arby's ( WEN): Cramer said that while he liked Wendy's, McDonald's ( MCD) was best of breed.
