Bullish calls:

Texas Instruments (NYSE:TXN)
National Semiconductor (NSM)
Intel (NASDAQ:INTC):'.... trades to $27.'
Halliburton (NYSE:HAL):'It's cheaper. It's better. It's up 6 quick ones, but I like it!'
Gerdau AmeriSteel (GNA): 'But GNA?... which is a companion of a Brazilian steel company... way up! '
US Steel (NYSE:X)
Allegheny Technologies (NYSE:ATI)
Sears holdings (NASDAQ:SHLD): 'It's up 12% on the year total. It's been a remarkable win. I think that SHLD, more than any other company domestically, could be the next Berkshire Hathaway ... I am urging patience. I don't want people to quit SHLD.'
Brookfield Asset Management (NYSE:BAM)
PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP): 'the case of Pepsi - I'd rather be in PEP than Pepsi Bottling Group. It just happens to be my predilection, because I just like to own the parent.'
Smith & Wesson (NASDAQ:SWHC): 'I wish I hadn't left the table. SWHC is cheap on growth prospects. Who knows? They get a government contract, and it could be 'to the moon, Alice!' I stand corrected.'
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): 'The stock has a sudden spike up, and then you've got to let some go again. Let it come back. Three months from now, AAPL will be still higher, because that company knows the industries, and knows how to dominate..'
Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT)

Bearish calls:

Integrated Device Technology (NASDAQ:IDTI): ' that's a 'don't buy'.
Grey Wolf (GW): ' ... at $8 and a half - I would ring the register.'
Pepsi Bottling Group (PBG): ' ... the case of Pepsi, rather be in PEP than PBG. It just happens to be my predilection, because I just like to own the parent.'
Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX): ' ... it has plummeted all the way down to $26... It's down 9 points. And you know what? It's still not right.'
Whole Foods Market (WFMI)
