Bullish calls:

Siemens (SI): 'SI CEO seems to be having a problem. I'm not going to take that away from the company.'
Arch Coal (NYSE:ACI): 'So, those of you who doubted me on coal, let me reiterate that, at $36, ACI is not done going up.'
Peabody Energy (NYSE:BTU): 'BTU is my favorite.'
Avnet (NYSE:AVT): 'I would much, much, much rather buy AVT, which has got the Cramer seal of approval, from when that CEO was on the show.'
Allegheny Technologies (NYSE:ATI): 'I think ATI is going to be good but, right now, the steel numbers aren't good enough ... ATI probably comes in a little. I hope not. It could be like Amazon. Surprise to the upside.'
Superior Offshore (DEEP): 'I think you want to be in DEEP for the duration of the next cycle in oil and gas.'
BASF (BF): 'I like the German market very much. It's been rocking. I think BF goes higher on its own.'
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG): ' I think GOOG had a very big move. It's rested, and ready to run again. I like GOOG!'
L-3 Communications (NYSE:LLL): ' There were a couple of downgrades to LLL. I thought they were a mistake.'
Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT)
Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC)
Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE): 'I think it's going to do well enough on its own ... This stock is just too cheap ... I think you buy this company because it's cheap, because it's got a great, great hammerlock Acrobat business, but I don't bet on a buyout here. I just don't think that's possible.'

Neutral calls:

Titanium Metals (TIE): 'I think it's going to be hostage to what ATI does tomorrow ... let's be careful, and let's wait, before we get too bullish on TIE, which is not best of breed, unlike ATI.'

Bearish calls:

Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM): 'I believe... XOM's had a very big run. I understand the desire to take it off the list.'
Applied Materials (NASDAQ:AMAT): 'Problematic. After the close, Cymer - which is in that same business - announced an awful, awful number ... I said AMAT is going to come in ... I don't want to buy AMAT.'
BJ Services (BJS)
Travelzoo (NASDAQ:TZOO)
II-VI (NASDAQ:IIVI): 'This is a laser company, but it's very highly valued... I feel that this stock, down $7, is going to be dead money for some time. Don't buy, don't buy.'
Focus Media Holding (NASDAQ:FMCN): 'My friend, Patrick Shultz, insists that this is the best China play, ahead of the olympics. I don't care for China! Don't buy, don't buy.'
