Bullish calls:

Bucyrus (NASDAQ:BUCY): ‘I remember when it first went bankrupt and they came out of bankruptcy. It's all been good since then.’
Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT): ‘ … as much as I like BUCY, I prefer Caterpillar … is a little down more from its high than BUCY, because it has more housing exposure.’
Vasco Data Security (NASDAQ:VDSI): ‘ … even though it hit a 52-week high today, I like it but, remember, for actual big software now, I've been recommending Oracle.’
Oracle (NYSE:ORCL): ‘ I’ve been recommending Oracle, because they had a truly blowout quarter... buy, buy, buy!’
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG): ‘I believe the stock can go to $700. Remember, it's a $600 billion advertising market. I think that they could take $10 billion of it, and still not be done.’
Norsk Hydro (NHY): ‘You know, this company does have it all, and I've been trying to find a reason to recommend it... Memo to staff, let's do a little NHY work..’
BHP Billiton (NYSE:BHP)
Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile (NYSE:SQM)
National Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV): ‘Even up here, they have a hammerlock on building rigs... Even up here, I would buy NOV...’
Nastech (NSTK): ‘NSTK is more speculative than yours, but more ways to win... Obesity. We've got diabetes in there. We've got autism in there. We've got RNAI.’
Agrium (NYSE:AGU)
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): ‘I think the numbers are too low... It's been one of my favorites.’
Research In Motion (RIMM): ‘I wish I could get a pullback. I don't know if I can.’

Cytyc (CYTC): ‘It is now up literally 8 points from where I recommended it last week … I am not done recommending it. I know normally I would be. But the merger's so powerful, I see $70.’

Bearish calls:

ViroPharma (VPHM): ‘Holy cow... I almost did myself in on that one... that was one of my worst picks ever... sell, sell, sell! No. That company is just a choke artist!’
Xinhua Finance Media (XFML): ‘ I was having an interview today... asking me about why I don't recommend more Chinese stocks … and the answer is, I don't know how to interpret the financials.’
Terra Nitrogen (NYSE:TNH): ‘I can't get a handle on it, because it's too crazed... it be crazy!’
Sirius (NASDAQ:SIRI) ‘That stock has to pull back, because I still don't trust congress to do the right thing... they've held more hearings on this than they have on Iraq!’
Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB): ‘I would sell some Schlumberger (SLB) here and buy some RIG!’
Wynn (NASDAQ:WYNN): ‘I still like it, but it is so hot that I've got to be careful… don’t buy, don’t buy!’
‘No, I think it just ran a little. I'm not a big buyer of that one - sell, sell, sell!’
