Bullish calls:

Hologic (HOLX): 'This is an absolutely great deal. Hologic at 55 is the way to go.'
MasterCard (MA): 'Goes to 200. Do not dare leave MasterCard yet. We are now up 100 points in this stock, and we are not done ... If you are still playing with lots of money in this and not the house's money, then that's a mistake. Take some off the table tomorrow.'
Yamana Gold (AUY): 'I have liked, as a gold company, Yamana Gold.'
Golden Star Resources (GSS): 'I've hurt a lot of people in it. But it's a spec game ... so I'm not backin' down.'
Apollo Investment (AINV): 'This one makes a lot of money. 8% yield. It's a keeper. I think you've got a good one. I like this stock very much. '
Bucyrus International (BUCY): 'BUCY is part of the amazing resurgence of American manufacturing. This and Joy Global are fantastic mineral plays. ... Do not sell that stock. ... Could indeed trade up 15 more points.'
Joy Global (JOYG)
Elan (ELN): 'I've been too negative on Elan. ... That stock is going higher.'
Texas Instruments (TXN)
Nvidia (NVDA)
National Semiconductor (NSM)
Caterpillar (CAT): 'I like Caterpillar more (than Terex). Caterpillar is up much less.'
OptionsXpress Holdings (OXPS): 'Does not need a takeover to send it higher. This is a well-run company that should be trading higher as is.'
J.C. Penney (JCP): 'The last couple of months have been bad. They all want to dump on Mike Ullman. ... Far be it for me to stand in front of a freight train, but I will...I'm not backing away, I'm backing up the truck.'
Fannie Mae (FNM)
Downey Financial (DSL)

Bearish calls:

CYTYC (CYTC)
Trident Microsystems (TRID): 'It's related to video graphics, but I like Nvidia.'
Echelon (ELON): ' ... 52-week high. Nah, not for me. I'm not going to give you that one.'
Melco PBL Entertainment (MPEL): 'I screwed up. I cut my losses at 18, because I realized these guys were pathetic. ... These guys are not for me. ... No, don't stay with MPEL.'
Sterling Bancorp (STL): 'No... Expensive bank, my friend.'
Jones Soda (OTC:JSDA): 'No, no, no. They missed the quarter. We had enough of JSDA. We're not pressing our bet there...'
