Exelon (NYSE:EXC)
Consolidated Edison (NYSE:ED)
Level 3 Communications (NASDAQ:LVLT): 'If I want a wholesale carrier, you know I'm going to give you Level 3 Communications which just won a gigantic piece of a contract from the federal government.'
Briggs & Stratton (NYSE:BGG): 'I think that you have a winner here. I would not sell it. Nice yield too. Very well-run company. BGG is a keeper! '
AAR (NYSE:AIR): 'Oh, you know I like AIR. I've recommended this one many times on this show. This is an exceedingly well-run aircraft play ... You've got a winner too.'
BE Aerospace (BEAV)
Dow Jones (DJ): ' DJ will succumb to the Murdoch bid [to buy the Wall Street Journal]
Dollar Tree Stores (NASDAQ:DLTR): 'It's a winner. Particularly after Dollar General got taken out. DLTR is terrific.'
Bankrate (NYSE:RATE): Stick with it! This is a really good company ... RATE is a real company and provides a real service ... I think this company is worth pulling the trigger on up here.'
Nucor (NYSE:NUE): 'Best of breed steel company! Probably not a takeover candidate ... I like that stock very much. That's a buy!'

Bearish calls:

Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE:ADM): 'I'm embarrassed! I'm embarrassed! Sell, sell, sell! More number cuts today. Anything ethanol is just so bad.'
IDT (NYSE:IDT): 'I have not been a fan of the prepaid call business ... I want you to swap out of yours and go into LVLT.'
FactSet Research (NYSE:FDS): 'This stock has had such a move, that I have to tell you, valuation has finally been stretched... It's a great company, but it's got about 18% growth, and it's selling frankly at twice that. That's the upper limit. Don't buy, don't buy.'
Applebee's (APPB): ' ... stinks!'
