Bullish calls:

Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX): ' You have to hold SBUX for the next 12 months ... before they make the big move in China ... I think the stock's trading 32-42, 32-42. You're at $35. That's a nice part of the range. Stick with SBUX.'
Schering-Plough (SGP): ' I like SGP. It's not stopping here at $22. It's got the best cholesterol drug on the market. I say it goes to $25. Pull the trigger now! May I add that Fred Hassen may be the #1 drug executive in the world!'
Merck (NYSE:MRK): 'MRK's the winner!'
New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:NYX): ' Things cannot go right to $250 ... they have detours, apparently. Anything can happen on the way to $250. And what I am telling you, at $96, you must not get off that highway. That highway will get you there. I say stick with it!'
EMC (EMC): ' My friend from GS says that EMC is going higher ... EMC - I think she's going to be right! That's it! I'm changing my call right here. I am going from negative to positive right here - EMC! Buy, buy, buy!'
Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS): 'I would actually swap out of that [TRAD] - and go into GS. They're both brokers. One's pretty cheap.'
DirecTV (DTV): 'I think it's happening [Liberty media acquisition of DTV]. This stock will not quit. I believe it's cheap on the fundamentals and cheap on a takeover basis.'
Genentech (Private:DNA): 'I like DNA very much, but....'
Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN): ' ... Amgen's pulling back more [than DNA].'
Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG): 'CELG seems like a candidate to be bought by PFE.'

Bearish calls:

Coach (NYSE:COH): 'You know I said take profits. I cannot justify a new purchase at $43. In fact, if you bought it because of me - don't buy, don't buy - take something off please. I expect a good quarter. Big anniversary thing. We're being too greedy.'
Pfizer (NYSE:PFE): 'PFE blew it!'
CDC (NASDAQ:CHINA): ' ... 52-week high. You know I don't necessarily trust the Chinese because of their long history of communism... '
Baidu.com (NASDAQ:BIDU): 'BIDU... enough! Enough BIDU!'
Tractor Supply (NASDAQ:TSCO): 'Here's the problem... This company is way, way too, somehow linked to housing ... I am going to have to issue a 'don't buy' on this one.'
Tradestation Group (NASDAQ:TRAD): 'I think that it's a mistake to sell that stock ... At $1.50 higher, ring the register. I would actually swap out of that - and go into GS.'
Eastman Kodak (EK): 'SellSellSellSellSellSell.'
