Bullish calls:

Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK): 'The company is mostly levered to natural gas... is CHK! Don't you dare sell CHK. That stock is going higher!'
Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB): 'You want to play summer box office?... You buy Viacom which, although the news reports weren't that positive, that's wrong! That was a great quarter... VIA-B is your play my friend.'
Texas Instruments (NYSE:TXN)
Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM)
Protective Life (NYSE:PL): 'PL is solid too... I like that! ...Why couldn't PL get a bid?!... Let's see, the book value here is $34 bucks.... These can go out at two times book. That would put this stock at almost $70. It's at $50. I want to buy that!'
MetLife (NYSE:MET)
Prudential Financial (NYSE:PRU)

Neutral calls:

Scientific Games (NASDAQ:SGMS): 'I believe it's a decent stock. It's just not as great as I thought... It needs more momentum to break out from this level.'

Bearish calls:

Regal Entertainment (NYSE:RGC): 'I would have said that the chance has already come and gone ... It's run too much.'
LSI Logic (NASDAQ:LSI-OLD): 'LSI, man. That was an awful quarter.'
Republic Airways (RJET): 'Cheap. Cheap stock, but I am no longer recommending any of the airlines. They have had a really big run.'
Yahoo! (YHOO): ' ... as long as Terry Semel's there - he's the CEO - you and I are not going to make any money... As a matter of fact, it's a dog. The board ought to get electroshock therapy.'
Given Imaging (GIVN)
Sysco (NYSE:SYY): 'I went through that conference call. I have got to tell you, they did not deliver. Sell, sell, sell!... Let's let it pull back to under $30, and then we'll pull the trigger.'
Coach (COH): 'I think you buy the handbags. The stock, I don't want to touch here. That quarter was not that great ... when it gets below $43, we can pull the trigger again.'
