Bullish calls:

Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT): 'You cannot stop defense stocks! ... and the cheapest and the best, right here, right now, is LMT!'
L-3 Communications (NYSE:LLL)
Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC)
Boeing (NYSE:BA):
'First of all, after the close, a 17% dividend boost. Is there anything this company doesn't do? ... I think that BA is going to $100. Big orders ... That is one of my favorite companies in the DOW.'
NYSE (NYSE:NYX): ' No one is championing this stock except for me! I'm all alone, and that makes me like it even more! Could this stock go to $200? Mark my words, I think it will!'
DivX (DIVX): 'I think that DIVX goes higher. I like the stock. I'm not dissuaded by the fact that it's near its 52-week high. I think it goes back to $31 before year end.'
Disney (NYSE:DIS): ' I recommened that stock at $32. It should not have gone down, after it reported that quarter. It is inching its way up to $38.'
Coldwater Creek (NASDAQ:CWTR): 'Look, I know that people are saying, 'hold it, Cramer.' He blew that CWTR. All I can say is, sometimes stocks get put on sale, when they go from regional-to-national. And, here's what I'm doing (backing up the truck) CWTR.'
Arris Group (NASDAQ:ARRS): 'Don't, don't give up ... I just wish they hadn't done that convertible deal - they hurt me.'
BEA Systems (BEAS): 'We are going to wake up one day, and BEAS is going to be appreciably higher. It has obviously been hurt by the options ugly stick (backdating)... But BEAS should not be punished ... if they don't get the stock up, will be purchased by Oracle.'
VeriSign (NASDAQ:VRSN): 'You wait until it goes back to $22 or $23, and then you buy a little more. It's an up stock that's doing really well, that's got a lot of momentum with good earnings power. I say stick with it.'
Phelps Dodge (PD): 'Steve Cohen - one of the best investment managers - has said that that bid that it's gotten is too low. I'm with Steve. This stock should be bought ...There's another 20 points,'
Verizon (NYSE:VZ): ' VZ is a good, cheap stock with a good dividend.'
Yamana Gold (NYSE:AUY): 'It remains my favorite gold stock. Two thumbs up, way up.'

Bearish calls:

Brocade Communications (NASDAQ:BRCD): I'm worred about BRCD ... I like the long-term story, but ... Don't buy, don't buy. I am not clear about BRCD and cannot recommend it on this very show.'
Panacos Pharmaceuticals (OTC:PANC): 'Oh man, now you're talking about dicey ... I cannot bless a company that has no revenues to speak of in the last two quarters and no earnings ... Don't buy, don't buy.'
Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE:AMD): ' I keep thinking that's opportunity knocking, but everytime I do it, I feel like (whipping sound). Here's the problem: they are in a price war - and a price war nobody wins!'
Intel (NASDAQ:INTC): 'INTC and AMD have thin margins and I don't want to buy them! Don't buy, don't buy.'
Sun Microsystems (NASDAQ:SUNW): 'I think that this is just one of those stocks that was way too high, went down a lot, and is now just trying to find itself - $5-6, $5-6. In other words, stay away.'
Hansen Natural (HANS)
New York Community Bancorp (NYB)
Toro (NYSE:TTC):
'You missed it. It had a big run. I'd rather ring the register. Nice dividend boost though.'
