Capital One Financial


: "Capital One is a dicey stock and is too speculative for me. There are other banks I regard as less expensive."

Becton Dickinson


: "This has been a one-way fare lower. It's a quality company that's just getting throw away. I don't expect it to do anything, but I want you to wait for higher prices before you sell."

Huntington Bancshares


: "I simply don't like it. They've made too many mistakes and they might not pass the stress test. They don't pass my stress test."

Cisco Systems


: "This is part of the altar of momentum people are worshipping here. Wait for a pullback before you get in. I think they're still buys."

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters


: "This is clearly a short squeeze. Let's not be greedy and take a little off the table."

Aracruz Celulose S.A


: "If that dividend can be maintained, I'd be a buyer, but I can't get my arms around it right now. "
