: "The biotechs are well funded, the drug companies can't afford to do this anymore. That's why I like Covance. That's why it's at a 52-week high. I also like

: "No ... I'm negative on that. ... I don't want you in that. That's way too speculative."
: "No, no, no, no. This is like clean energy. I don't want to be in that right now. You missed it, you missed it. But you'll catch another one."

is hanging in there. So I can't tell you to back it up."
: "I have had one policy on this show since the get-go. I do not like generic-drug companies. ... I don't like that stock. I would sell it."
( PALM): "I do not like Palm. I think it can go lower. You know I'm a
Research In Motion
( RIMM) fan. But if you bought RIMM on my recommendation, you must, must, must ring the register."
