Bullish calls:

Honeywell (NYSE:HON): “They got this Umbraer contract today... It's like a multiple... $20 billion... and the stock was barely up. That's wrong. I think HON has more things going for it... more positives.”
CSX Corp (NYSE:CSX): “Just pulled back. Why not pull the trigger on CSX?”
Weyerhaeuser (NYSE:WY): “…all the lumber stocks fell today. You got a great dividend …I think WY is just a terrific buy here.”
Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM): “XOM is what we call on Wall Street, a core holding. They buy back a lot of stock. They have tremendously undervalued reserves …XOM is a great American company, and I'm never going to tell anyone not to buy it.”
Petrohawk Energy (NYSE:HK): “HK is real good, and any of the natural gas stocks, on any discount, I'd buy.”
Verizon (NYSE:VZ): “ …my feelings were hurt... Apparently, Ivan Siedenburg [CEO] sat down with Wachovia Corp. and not with Cramer... I mean, that's crazy …I'm starting to feel very unloved …VZ, come to Cramer...”
Mastercard (NYSE:MA): “I like Mastercard first... I still like it on any weakness. Remember, it is not a play on retail, it's a play on transactions...”
Visa (NYSE:V)
Atlas Energy Resources (ATN): “It's a hand over fist buy... pull the trigger. That is one of my absolute favorite plays, and you know I love the Marcellus Shale...”
Millicom International (MICC): “It's got momentum... it's got good earnings... It's just expensive, and a lot of expensive stocks are coming in. I want you to buy some...”

Bearish calls:

Cameco (NYSE:CCJ): “I don't want uranium... It's too, too speculative for this guy. Everytime we've tried it, we've failed.”
YRC Worldwide (NASDAQ:YRCW): “I don't want to be there... As a matter of fact, that's like my least favorite.”
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG): “I am concerned that, if Steve Ballmer (CEO Microsoft) gets Yahoo! he is going to break price and affect pricing, and he can afford to do it. Also, the Google people have to start showing some discipline. They spend like drunken sailors..”
Trinity Industries (NYSE:TRN): “TRN is a no-go. Why? … I realized that they're just not reordering those kinds of cars. It's just not a good play.”
Citigroup (NYSE:C): “They're getting their arms around the problem. I'm going to say don't buy, but I'm starting to see signs of life, and... they're no longer on life support.”
Discover Financial Services (NYSE:DFS)
American Express (NYSE:AXP)
