Bullish calls:

Airgas (ARG): 'They keep beating the numbers. It's had a couple of points pullback. You know what that means. C'mon. ('mon-back sound)... ARG is a winner here.'
Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ:AKAM): ' ... when we start doing digital video, I am going to gravitate, if not migrate, to AKAM. A very solid report out just today about how good they're doing. The stock closed up a little bit. Let's hope it comes down so we can buy some.'
DivX (DIVX): ' ... if you're going to do digital video, you know we're going to do DIVX.'
Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:VRTX): 'I am always shocked that VRTX is still independent, given their strength in the hepatitis area. I've got to believe that someone takes them out eventually. In the meantime, it's doing really well. I want to stick with VRTX. I think that that is a buy, buy, buy. '
HealthExtras (HLEX): 'It's another network pharmacy cost-saving play.... That whole quotient ... Every one of those is going to do well, if you get the slowdown that I'm expecting...'
MedcoHealth (NYSE:MHS)
Express Scripts (NASDAQ:ESRX)
Terra Nitrogen (NYSE:TNH): 'You should keep thinking, and you should pull the trigger.' Mosaic (NYSE:MOS): 'Hey, how about MOS - which was the one that we chose - upgraded again today, which is just on fire.'
Sociedad Quimica (NYSE:SQM): 'Don't forget the SQM - at a 52-week high. We have owned this fertilizer trade with the SQM.'
M&F Worldwide (NYSE:MFW)
American Ecology (NASDAQ:ECOL): 'It's got a 3% yield. It's kind of stalled here. You know I do like the waste business. This is toxic waste. I'm not backing away.'
Harris (NYSE:HRS): 'You know we're a big buyer of HRS. HRS is the ultimate high-def play .. It's up a little bit. I say stay long it. It's good. It's a low-multiple tech stock.'
NYSE Euronext (NYSE:NYX): ' I feel that this stock - which is all the way back down to where I recommended it - is ready to be re-charged... I think NYX, the numbers are understated. I'm going back to NYX, and I am telling you to not be perturbed. I am telling you to buy. Buy, buy, buy!'
Wheeling-Pittsburgh (WPSC): 'I recommended this stock literally right here, about two years ago. It's still sitting here. Every other steel company is going up.'
Reliance Steel (NYSE:RS): 'I'm going to recommend RS for the takeover basis.'
Nucor (NYSE:NUE): 'I'm going to give you NUE on the earnings basis.'

Bearish calls:

Sonic Solutions (SNIC): 'No... No, no.'
CMGI (CMGI): 'I think we're in a shakeout market here, after this selloff... I think there's another day for it. Can we please wait, to let that stock go under $2, before we pull the trigger? Sell, sell, sell!'
