Bullish calls:

TECO Energy (NYSE:TE): ... '5% yield; a little hurricane season worry, but nothing to really put a damper on it. I say two thumbs up on TE; it's down a lot.'
Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS): 'that stock is going higher; it sells at 8x earnings; it's a cheap stock. It's growing at 15%. I bank with Lloyd Blankfiend ... He's one of my absolute favorite executives in America.'
Martek Biosciences (MATK): 'If you want to play supplements, the stock that we've been recommending here is MATK. It just got the big General Mills contract.'
Southern (NYSE:SO): ' ... two points from it's low; four points off its high. SO with a nice, fat 5% yield. That one is for me.'
Votorantim Celulose e Papel (VCP)
Diageo (NYSE:DEO):
' ... on a 2.4% yield, on an unbelievable, unrivaled set of brands, is still going up. I'm not backing away. DEO goes to $75!'
Tellabs (NASDAQ:TLAB): 'TLAB, which is going to earn a $1 a share I think, and should sell at 20x earnings...'
Scientific Games (NASDAQ:SGMS): 'I think that SGMS, ever since it was added to the S&P Mid-Cap, has been stalled here. I think it's ready to roll. A lot of big European contracts coming their way. I am sticking with it. Two thumbs up.'
Progressive (NYSE:PGR)
Pioneer Drilling (PDC):
' $1 off its 52-week low. That's a travesty! That stock should be bought!'
Grey Wolf (GW)
Halliburton (NYSE:HAL)
Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN)
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT):
'Lately it's been a dog. But ... It's got a gazillion dollars in cash; they eventually have got to get it right. Vista one day will ship, and you've got to be in it a couple of months before Vista. It's probably done going down.'

Bearish calls:,

Usana Health Sciences (NYSE:USNA)
Gaiam (NASDAQ:GAIA):
'I want you to ring the register. I don't trust that stock all the way up here.'
Sonus Networks (NASDAQ:SONS)
Geron (NASDAQ:GERN):
'GERN, which is one of those companies that issues as many press releases as TIVO, I think is not what I want. This is the anti-blue chip.'
Northern Trust (NASDAQ:NTRS)
Steven Madden (NASDAQ:SHOO):
'We recommended this stock when it was low. And then it took off, and now it's pulling back again, pretty much from where we recommended it. But fashion is no longer selling.'
