Joby Aviation: “No, no. Let it go. I think it can go down to like $7, $8 and then you can pick some up. I just don’t see a lot going there. I just don’t.”

Meta Materials: “It’s a small Canadian company. ... One of these things, when you have one of these little metal companies, this is not like a little cancer company where I’ll say buy it like Trillium. This is one where I really question the long-term approach of them. I don’t want to own it.”

Ares Commercial Real Estate Corp.: “That’s a middle market lender. First of all, junk bond funds have been falling like stones. I think that these, historically, when I’ve recommended them have been a mistake. I’m not going to deviate. I’m not going to recommend that stock.”

Willis Towers Watson: “That’s a very good brokerage company. I like it very much. It’s not going to hurt you. I don’t think it’s going to excite you, but it is profitable and it’s doing well. How about that? Let’s leave it at that.”

Ingevity Corp.: “I think it’s a really interesting company. This is the kind of particular chemical company I like. Good growth, makes money, [doesn’t] sell for an expensive price. That’s the kind of stock I think that when you do homework, you come up with and you make money.”

Albemarle Corp.: “Albemarle is a great company with a very expensive stock and terrific growth. It is more speculative than I like at this point, but it is a very good company and I think it’s worth buying.”

Applied Materials: “I love the quarter. Don’t be confused. It’s buyable, especially with Micron rallying today. I have to tell you, I think that quarter was excellent, and people who were selling the stock actually did not know what they were doing.”

Coinbase Global: “I think Coinbase is inexpensive. I don’t really care for management because I think they let out a lot of stock when they started. I was against that. They should’ve been buyers, not sellers. I think the listing went very, very poorly. I think the company is the .. natural repository of crypto. I will also say this, though, I own Ethereum directly. I think you should have up to 5% of your portfolio in crypto. I am a believer in crypto.”

Match Group: “I didn’t think the quarter was nearly as bad as the sellers said, and I think the company is really worthwhile. Maybe what we have to do is just revisit it, but I think that everything we’ve said about it — and we’ve liked it for some time — I reiterate. I like it very much, but don’t forget I also like Bumble.”

Royalty Pharma: “What is that stock doing under $40? I was thinking about doing a segment on that stock, because that is so cheap versus what I’m seeing in the actual field. They own a lot of stocks, and you should buy it.”

Mitek Systems: “The volume is very low. The fact that the company is doing incredibly well matters to me. I think it’s a buy. I don’t understand why someone hasn’t taken a run at that company already.”
