Boston Scientific


: "I want to buy BSX. I know it's out of favor, but we're still in recession and that means biotech."

Lockheed Martin


: "The move's been made, and I missed it. It'll probably go up a few more points, but then I'm a seller."



: "Missed the quarter bad and now they're in the sell block. They're a smoking company that didn't do the job."

Vertex Pharmaceuticals


: "I have so many great biotech companies; may I suggest you pick up some



. I'd rather see you own that one."



: "No, no. If they have a bad quarter tomorrow, you go buy some

Terra Nitrogen


, which is the only fertilizer stock I'm recommending."

Vimpel Communications


: "Russia is no longer investable, we are sellers of all things Russian right now."

GrafTech International


: "This is an industrial company without a good yield; so no, we're not going there."

Pan American Silver


: "I think that silver's pulled back. Buy it in stages."



: "I think this stock is too low. I want to be a buyer of Coach right here."

Cisco Systems


: "I understand the quarter is nothing to write home about, but I think this is the last bad quarter. Buy half a position at $17, half at $16 and you're in."

Duke Energy


: "I'm going to say no. I like

Dominion Resources


; I think they have a better portfolio of Obama-friendly properties."
