Bullish calls:

Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU): ' ... that is my Chinese play.'

Ebay (NASDAQ:EBAY): 'I do like the Ebay Yahoo! combination.'
Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO)
LCA-Vision (NASDAQ:LCAV):
'Two thumbs up for LCAV - it's going to $60!'
PetroChina (NYSE:PTR)
Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT)
Wheeling-Pittsburgh (WPSC):
'they got that big investment, the stock was ramping, I recommended it in the low 20's - it went to the high 20's ... I'm not walking away though. It's much cheaper than letter X.'
Allegheny Technologies (NYSE:ATI): 'You've got to go best of breed in titanium ... Not that Cramer wants to play titanium anymore ... he does not want to give back that gain from the stock of the year!'
Martek Biosciences (MATK): ' ... if we didn't have the rotation out of the soft goods stuff, that stock would be higher. Let's pull the trigger and buy some more MATK!'
Panera Bread (NASDAQ:PNRA): 'PNRA's is going back when they report their same-store sales. I buy it at $66. I sell it at $72.'
Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX): 'When you pay $4.86 for a venti cappuccino, with an extra shot of espresso, that's a company that I want to do business with. I think SBUX on this pullback is a 'mon-back!'

Merck (NYSE:MRK):
'the lawsuits in this country are trying to take MRK down.'

Titanium Metals (TIE)
Joy Global (JOYG):
'I saw lots of option activity on the call side of JOYG ... if the stock goes down to 50, you have to schnitzel your way out of there.'
Cigna CP. (NYSE:CI): 'I saw an uplift in the AETNA and the CI, but the gains were quickly dissipated.'
Aetna (NYSE:AET)
Humana Inc. (NYSE:HUM)
United Health Group (NYSE:UNH):
...' I own the UNH for my charitable trust. I have to stay away from that group until we've figured out that options situation - it's very complicated.'
