Bullish calls:

Capital One Financial (NYSE:COF): ' ... by far the cheapest credit card company. I want you in Capital One. You ain't seen nothing yet with COF.'
Phelps Dodge (PD): 'So many ways to win. Housing demand coming back.'
Infosys Technologies (NASDAQ:INFY): 'We nailed that thing ... in our game plan last week ... It reported a beautiful quarter, and I think it goes higher. I'm not getting off the bull yet.'
Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT): 'Even though it's not my favorite, because I like the fundamentals of tech right here, and seasonality, it's buy, buy, buy!'
RadVision (NASDAQ:RVSN): 'I like it even now; it's up big.'
Marriott (NYSE:MAR)
Hilton (HLT-OLD)
Target (NYSE:TGT):

Morgan's Hotel Group (NASDAQ:MHGC): ' ... that company came public, and it's been a total bow-wow. They don't even really own the hotels.'
Acorda Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ACOR): 'You bought a stock at 9 and it's at 18. Bulls make money, bears make money, pigs get slaughtered. You need to ring the register, my friend.'
Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK):
'You better hope for an ice age. Without a tsunami of ice, you are going to lose money on that. SellSellSell.'
