Bullish Calls:

BP (NYSE:BP): "I am a master… a Dr. Kevorkian to BP I actually did pull the trigger on BP…I have got to tell you something, let me tell you something… this one is not for the squeamish… stick with BP."

Exelon (NYSE:EXC): "Here is the word… that is a 5% yield and it has a lot of nuclear power… it fell apart like many other stocks this week… that is a well run utility and I would be very impressed buying that over 5%… that is a growth utility… that is a steal here."

Ford Preferred (F-PS): "I want to refer to that Matt Kranz article in USA Today, which talked about the Ford Preferred that I prefer… and it is an excellent article for those of you who do not understand why I like the preferred… a better piece of paper."

Bearish Calls:

Monsanto (NYSE:MON): "I do not care if you bought this for a crypt, or dug underground with it, whatever… this is just one bad stock… it is going down… we have got the Justice Department taking shots at it… we have got DuPont taking shots at it… I have got to tell you, this is a Stephen King nightmare stock…it really is… it is like, IT… like Dreamcatcher… you know what I mean… it is like…it is just a real bad…I am trying to think about that one… Cujo, it is Cujo… yeah, Monsanto is Cujo."
