Bullish calls:


Jakks Pacific (NASDAQ:JAKK)
Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT):“ I want you in MAT, at $20, because of that good dividend,.”
Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK): “ I am recommending this stock, whenever it comes in... I think this is the year for natural gas... You know I think natural gas is going to $16 bucks... This is the best play on natural gas right now. It's the cheapest natural gas company in the country... CHK... and the management is fabulous.”
Westar Energy (NYSE:WR): “ I've got to tell you, Sparky... A 5% dividend is something that I want to own...”
Petrobras (NYSE:PBR): “ It's got three things going for it... We've got a shortage in oil, it's the best-run national oil company, and it's in Brazil!..”
Costco (NASDAQ:COST): “I'd rather buy, including Costco if I wanted to make a bet on the consumer.”
Oracle (NASDAQ:ORCL): “I think [CEO, Larry] Ellison's money in the bank. I like all the combinations he's put together.’
Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM): “ [CEO] Marc Benioff is my kind of guy. You want to take some risk and you want to own software? Then I think you buy Salesforce.com. Is it for me? No. But for risk takers it is...’

Bearish calls:

Wachovia (NASDAQ:WB): “We are now enduring another huge bounce in WB, and what I want you to do is, as it goes higher... Sell, sell, sell!..”
LeapFrog (NYSE:LF): “I think you should sell LF.”
Onyx Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ONXX): “I was right for the first 20 points, and then wrong... So, I don't know... I think this is a 'don't buy'.”
BB&T Corp (NYSE:BBT): “What I'd like to do is scale out of them over time. Maybe we can revisit them at a lower level …I'm trying to be really polite about this one.”
Yingli Green Energy (NYSE:YGE): “I know that this YGE has a lot of adherence, but it just went up a lot... I've got to say, 'Don't buy, don't buy...' until it comes in.”
AutoNation (NYSE:AN): “I don't like that business right here. I think the economy is not strong enough... “
Dana Holding Corp (NYSE:DAN): ‘The recapitalized Dana?... No... c'mon... Don't buy, don't buy... Too many recaps out of bankruptcy have hurt too many people.”
