Bullish calls:

Sadia (NYSE:sda-old): “It's a Latin America food company … That is absolutely a great company...”
Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM)
Research In Motion (RIMM): “RIMM is still a bull-market play. I like it a little less, because it's got some consumer tinge...”
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): “…you've got to maybe take 10 points of pain, and get 70 points of gain. I think AAPL is going to break out by the end of the year.”
United Technologies (NYSE:UTX): “They've delivered year after year of earnings... UTX is a solid, screaming buy here!”
Chicago Mercantile Exchange (NASDAQ:CME): “I want to see CME conclude this deal with the NYMEX (NMX)... Maybe they have to pay up... this is a really fabulous company … I'm not backing away from it.”

Sunoco (NYSE:SUN), Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO)

Bearish calls:

Under Armour (NYSE:UA): “Sell, sell, sell... When they said it was good to have a huge gain in inventory, I realized that they thought that I went to college to get stupid.”
Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD): “GILD is so good... GILD's too high. Wait for a 10% pullback.”
Systemax (NYSE:SYX): “We've got enough problems in tech. We don't need to be in software like that.”
Western Refining (NYSE:WNR): “That has got to be the worst-acting stock I have seen in ages.”
