Bearish Calls:

Arcos Dorados (NYSE:ARCO): "I don't want to own them...I'd rather own McDonald's."

Teck Resources Limited (TCK): "...that (pain) is because of China. I prefer the Ah! (cry of pain) of Freeport McMoRan to the Ah! (cry of pain) of Teck Resources."

iShares Silver Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:SLV): "Every time that gets hot, people lose a lot of money. That thing will go under $30."
