Bullish calls:

ITT Educational Services (NYSE:ESI)
Yamana Gold (NYSE:AUY): ' … for those who want the growth gold.'
Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX): 'There are two gold stocks we recommend on this show... ABX, for those who want the conservative gold…'
EMC (NYSE:EMC): 'EMC is grossly undervalued. It ran to $25. It came back to $19 in the selloff... I am urging you to pull the trigger right now, and buy some EMC* for a year-end rally. I think it's great and inexpensive.'

Schering-Plough (SGP)
McDonald's (NYSE:MCD)
Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS)

Bearish calls:

Noah Education Holdings (NYSE:NED)
NovaGold Resources (NYSEMKT:NG): 'Unbelievable. This company was neck and neck, doing a good deal with Barrick (ABX) and then, suddenly... Let's just say it didn't have the muscle.'
Pfizer (NYSE:PFE): 'It's dead money! It will not, not make you a lot of money in the next three to four years.'
Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX): 'I think SBUX is headed below the $20s... costs are not good... I think the growth prospects are not good, and it has become a very inconsistent company.'
Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD): 'Look, I put him [CEO, Hector Ruiz] on the Wall of Shame… Isn't anyone else enraged about how much money these guys make, and how little money they make for you, or how much they lose?... Shame on them! Shame on them! They are ridiculous!'
D.R. Horton (NYSE:DHI): 'I'm going to pay them the highest compliment I can possibly pay a homebuilder right now... They will make it. They will not have to file bankruptcy. Do you stick with them? Nah...'
Cynosure (NASDAQ:CYNO): 'Best of breed … but people aren't wealthy enough to afford this kind of enhancement … when you ain't enhancing, that's an economy that's clearly [crashing sound]... '
