Bullish calls:

Corning (NYSE:GLW): ' ... you want fiber... if you want voice, video... you have to go with Corning ... they're talking about the venerable fiber that Verizon is going to be using from GLW to snake in and out of apartments...'
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)
Oracle (NYSE:ORCL)
Campbell Soup (NYSE:CPB): 'If anybody is possible to get a takeover bid, then CPB could do it. On the fundamentals, it's okay.'
Invitrogen (IVGN): 'A very hot stock. Nucleic acids, enzymes. It does some pretty cool stuff...'
Nastech Pharmaceutical (NSTK): 'I took a lot of heat from the shorts, telling me that I was dead wrong... and they're wrong. NSTK is your speculative play. It has obesity. It has autism. It's got the special nasal way to get delivery for these things... It's got diabetes.'
Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB): ' ... when they put Schlumberger on sale... when they make SLB 17x earnings, I'm going to send you to best of breed. That's my predilection.'
Cameron International (NYSE:CAM): 'This stock was down 4. I like it.'
Expeditors International (NASDAQ:EXPD): 'It hit a 52-week high today. People always think about freight. They should be worried about logistics and freight. That's what EXPD does.'
Allegheny Tech (NYSE:ATI): 'I need you to be in ATI under $100.'
Progressive (NYSE:PGR): 'They're buying these high-quality pieces of paper that are yielding great. The earnings are going to explode for PGR!'
Prudential Financial (NYSE:PRU)
MetLife (NYSE:MET)
AllState (NYSE:ALL)

Bearish calls:

Synopsys (NASDAQ:SNPS): 'Look, it's tech, so my bias is to like it but, if I'm going to be in software, I want to go into the biggest possible names, with the best balance sheets.'
CommScope (CTV)
Southern Copper (PCU): '... $90 before I would buy it, and the reason why is the holders are so bad... But this one has a 6% dividend. When it gets down to my level ... that's your chance to pull the trigger.'
Coach (NYSE:COH):'COH has come down a lot, but I want to be careful. I'm not going to pull the trigger.'
Family Dollar (NYSE:FDO): 'The FDO numbers were so bad that I'm making a prediction right here, right now, that Dollar General will be the first private equity deal to go bust.'
Tribune (TRB)
Titanium Metals (TIE): 'I don't want you messing with TIE.'
