Bullish calls:

Accenture (NYSE:ACN): 'I think ACN is a better buy - that's best of breed.'
Smithfield Foods (NYSE:SFD): 'SFD has finally turned the corner. We once had a butterball turkey on the show. They bought that business and the meat business is good. Two thumbs up, way up!'
AU Optronics (NYSE:AUO): 'AUO is a big-screen TV company. I would double down right here, right now. That's how I feel so good about that one.'
Guitar Center (GTRC): '... this is a great company. The company's growing at 18%; it sells at 15x earnings.'
Corning (NYSE:GLW): 'I am continuing to say that GLW is a $24 that will eventually get to $28; it's taking its time.'
Walter Industries (NYSE:WLT): 'WLT is valued at $1.8 billion. You don't want to be in MWA - Swap out of MWA and go into WLT!'
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT): 'I think that the growth is actually understated here; it's growing at 12%. I think that we could have accelerated revenue growth. That stock's seeing $30!'
THQ (THQI)
Electronic Arts (ERTS)

Google (NASDAQ:GOOG): 'GOOG's breaking out here, my friend! I reiterate that a stock that grows at 33% should not sell at 40x earnings. I think this is a weight station - a quick stop - let's go to $500 GOOG. Google - $500!'
Waste Management (WMI): 'I say WMI is probably the best of breed; I want to be there.'
Darden Restaurants (NYSE:DRI)
Wendy's (NASDAQ:WEN)
McDonald's (NYSE:MCD)

Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT): 'I think anytime below $5 I want to be a buyer.'
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): 'Unbelivable opportunity to buy AAPL. Somebody downgraded it today; doesn't know what he's doing.'

Bearish calls:

BearingPoint (BE): 'I don't want you in BE.'
Mueller Water Products (NYSE:MWA): 'You don't want to be in MWA - Swap out of MWA and go into WLT!'
Alon USA Energy (NYSE:ALJ): 'That trade is over. The refiners are falling off a cliff.'
Take-Two Interactive Software (NASDAQ:TTWO): 'TTWO? Hey man, Grand Theft - not for me!'
Linear Technology (NASDAQ:LLTC) : 'I'm worried about LLTC.'
Deere (NYSE:DE):$83 for DE... I want to be a seller of DE. I don't like the cyclical stocks here.
Ciber (NYSE:CBR): 'I'm sending you to ACN.'
Axcelis Technologies (NASDAQ:ACLS): 'I think that tech is a little overvalued here. I don't want to be in that particular stock. There are other, cheaper stocks.'
Applebee's (APPB): 'I think APPB is okay; I like the other ones better. I would stick with them.'
Valero energy: 'VLO, pre-announced a really awful quarter. Now, remember, I didn't have the good horse sense to get out of VLO at $68 but, at $60, I said I'm dropping the boom on VLO.'
Cameco Corp (NYSE:CCJ): 'You know what? You can't own the uranium complex with oil going down like this; I think it's too dangerous.'
