J. Crew (JCG): 'Is run by the unbelievable Mickey Drexler, who also has a MadeWell division that's right.'
Molson Coors Brewing (NYSE:TAP)
Thompson Creek (TC): 'You've got to buy more... Molybdenum is in short supply. This stock ran. It's come back down … Yes! I would commit the ultimate sin of averaging down … because the company's worth a lot of money.'
Intel (NASDAQ:INTC): 'Is annihilating them bad! I'd rather see you in INTC. Take the loss and move into INTC.'
Schering-Plough (SGP): 'You've got to buy the stock, so I like SGP here... I think $2 down, and $5 up. That's the... I really do believe that this thing won't go below $24, and I believe in Fred Hassen... he has never failed.'
Magna (NYSE:MGA): 'This is a very low-cost producer of auto parts... and, while it's come down a great deal - as has everybody in the industry - I don't think selling it down here makes a lot of sense.'
Johnson Controls (NYSE:JCI)
MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR): 'WFR is making so much money, and is so product-constrained, that they can just bang all the solar companies…WFR is a total win here. Be careful... it's also at its 52-week high... It had a span of profit taking...'
First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR)
Copart (NASDAQ:CPRT): 'CPRT has just been a monster stock, since we recommended it at $35-36. And, at $40, not only am I not backing away, but I want to buy more. Buy, buy, buy! The fundamentals are strong here!'

Oshkosh Truck (NYSE:OSK)
Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS): 'I want you to buy, buy, buy. I think that this company is head and shoulders better than the other guys and, yet, the price-to-earnings multiple is no higher. What an opportunity! Go take down (buy) some GS!'.
