6. Force Protection ( FRPT): This maker of mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicles for the military saves lives as it builds transport vehicles specially designed to protect against roadside bombs. This stock is off huge (down over 75% since early October) as analysts forecast lower demand levels in coming years. I disagree with the bearish view, as I think MRAP demand will be sustainable. The vehicles are a military necessity in the asymmetric warfare being engaged globally. I find tremendous value at this level. -- BUY

7. Cisco Systems ( CSCO): I think this is a great opportunity to buy one of the true global blue chips at a fire-sale price. In my opinion, the market clearly overreacted to Cisco's recent earnings. This company is levered to everything that is good in technology. The growth of the Internet is speeding up, not slowing down. -- BUY

8. Countrywide Financial ( CFC): As your mother once told you, don't play with fire. I am applying that very basic and simple rule to CFC. -- SELL

9. AT&T ( T): It was a great week for the telecom goliath. It announced a large new stock buyback program of 400 million shares, increased its annual dividend to $1.60 (yield of 3.9%), and set an availability target of 30 million homes for its U-verse IPTV service by 2010. What's not to like? -- BUY

10. Banc of America ( BAC): The financial sector is just ugly, seeming to hit new lows every day. In fact, BAC just hit another low as I was writing this Monday. Down and down it goes, where does it stop? Nobody knows. -- SELL
