Bullish calls:

Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL): ' You know, that is a truly great American company. It was a fabulous number ... CL is on a tear, plus their big in Latin America. They have a big business overseas ... Holy cow. It's time to back up the truck. Cleanest quarter in the whole group, with the exception perhaps with CLX.'
Clorox (NYSE:CLX)
NYSE Group (NYSE:NYX): 'Goldman Sachs reiterated today, saying they like the quarter. I think the merger with EuroNext is going to produce gigantic numbers. A lot of people are impatient. It's been a great recommendation since the mid-60s and I am sticking by it ... This is a big stock for 2007.'
Respironics (RESP): 'I believe very strongly that RESP's sleep apnea franchise is a strong one. It's down 2 bucks from its high. And I say, bring me some RESP - buy, buy, buy! Bring it to me!'
Wyeth (WYE): ' ... that's become one of my favorite ones.'
Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA): 'I have heard many different worries about CMCSA ... I am banking with Brian Roberts, the CEO. I think that they're spending more money to get a lot more revenues... I feel that they are doing all the right things. There are very few capitalization companies that have growth - that they can even put money behind. CMCSA is one of them ... That stock should be bought, and it should be bought nine ways to Sunday. Buy, buy, buy!'
CA (NASDAQ:CA): 'They just reported an upside surprise.'
World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE:WWE): 'Here's the thing: WWE has done absolutely nothing since I recommended it, but you got a 6% yield. And you know what? ... I am sticking by WWE, because of international business.'
Washington Mutual (NYSE:WM): 'Oh man, too cheap with a good dividend.'
MRV Communications (NASDAQ:MRVC)

Bearish calls:

Sirius Satellite Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI): 'I've given up. I recommended this stock on the basis of takeover, which you should never do. I violated all my own rules ... the fundamentals don't support it.'
Rackable Systems (RACK): 'I believe that, if you hold this stock until August/September, you'll get some lift, but I cannot tell you anything good about RACK. That may have been the worst quarter in 2007. don't buy, don't buy. And, with any lift, sell, sell, sell!'
Par Pharmaceutical (NYSE:PRX): 'Now, you know, one of my problems is I have not liked the generic stocks ... The companies that make generic drugs are commodity companies. They have nothing proprietary... Sell, sell, sell! I don't want that stock in your portfolio.'
Informatica (NASDAQ:INFA):
Ciena (NASDAQ:CIEN): 'No. I'd rather see you in MRVC. Use a limit please.'
Tellabs (NASDAQ:TLAB): 'Oh c'mon, CSCO's killing them. You don't need that TLAB.'
