Bullish calls:

Google (NASDAQ:GOOG): '... it's not done going up. And you know I think this stock's now headed to $560, my new price target.'
Ford (NYSE:F): 'Below $7.50, that's going to be the gift of a lifetime. In the interim, let Al Mulally [CEO] do his magic. That stock is definitely a bull.'
Senomyx (NASDAQ:SNMX): 'We're up three smackers. Do I say pull the trigger? No. I say take a little schnitzel - a quarter position off - then let it run for this company that seems to have developed some taste things that don't add salt or sugar but are just as good.'
TD Ameritrade (NASDAQ:AMTD): ' ... after being negative, I am now going positive.'
E*Trade (NYSE:ET): 'AMTD and ET....they're down too much.'
Flir Systems (NASDAQ:FLIR): 'FLIR remains the favored area, no matter whether Democrats or Republicans win Congress, because it's domestic security.'
NICE Systems (NASDAQ:NICE): 'I'm staying bullish. They go higher into the election.'
Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG): 'We side with best of breed on Cramer's Mad Money, so I say swap Unilever into PG.'
MasterCard (NYSE:MA): 'This one was at $72. I said it might pull back to $68. It's had that pullback. Next stocp is $80.'
Trump Entertainment (TRMP): '...this is a stock that I've liked since $16. I'm not backing away, although the casinos could use a little refurbishment. It does have good management. Let's stay long TRMP.'
GameStop (NYSE:GME): 'Sometimes I think that paying 30x earnings for 20% growth is a little dicey, but not when I see Playstation, Nintendo Wie, and Microsoft 360 shipping, with lots of software. The answer is no - don't back away from GME. And, if it goes back to $47, I'm doing a 'mon-back.'
United Technologies (NYSE:UTX): 'UTX has been ... absolutely pummelled - since reporting a magnificient quarter. And it's not fair. George David rocks. That's a great quarter. I wish he weren't retiring as CEO. At $64, we're doing a 'mon-back for that one too.'
EuroZinc Mining (NYSEARCA:EZM): 'They've got a mine in Southern Portugal. This is a spec. I don't mind it; I like it, but be careful.'
Pharmaceutical Product Development (NASDAQ:PPDI): 'It's been stalled lately. It had a critical trial that people didn't like. I am sticking by it. I think it's an inexpensive stock.'
Tempur Pedic (NYSE:TPX): 'I was surprised at how good those numbers were. I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. I am actually going to say that TPX is okay.'
AU Optronics (NYSE:AUO): '... it's like GLW. I think big screen TVs are going to be big for Christmas. That means that AUO is going to move. That means two thumbs up AUO.'

Bearish calls:

Unilever (NYSE:UL): UL's got a higher yield than PG, but PG's a better company.
