Herbalife(HLF) - Get Report : "They report next week, be careful."

Rite Aid(RAD) - Get Report : "I would be careful. We still don't know if they're getting approval for the merger."

Potash (POT) : "I prefer AGCO(AGCO) - Get Report , then I like Mosaic(MOS) - Get Report and then Potash."

Micron Technology(MU) - Get Report : "Micron is too cheap. I'm pounding the table. "
