Timberland (NYSE:TBL): ' .... I'm sticking by my projections that TBL will be sold in the next month - for a higher price than it's selling for - or you'll be bailed out by that buyback. I say stay long TBL!'
Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ): ' ... gave a pretty good account of itself at the analyst meeting.'
Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO): ' They're best in show.'
Praxair (NYSE:PX): ' My position on it is that PX is a monster good stock. I think it's one of the best.'

BHP Billiton (NYSE:BHP): '.... between RTP and BHP... two thumbs up.'
Research In Motion (RIMM): ' I like RIMM, even though the chart 'looks bad.'
Encysive Pharmaceuticals (ENCY): 'You know, I like this company ... People are concerned about it, because it's losing money hand over fist. But I saw an uptick in revenue last quarter. Let me just give it one thumb up.'

Symbol Technologies (SBL): 'That merger's going to happen [with MOT] ... You've got to ring the register.'
