Monday, June 14th

Johnson & Johnson: “JNJ is kind of a, it’s a Teflon stock. It just goes up no matter what, and that’s because it has a big drug pipeline, and that’s why you should own the stock.”

Lockheed Martin: “I think that Jim Taiclet, I think he’s money … I say go with him.”

Vulcan Materials: “It’s time to pick some up … That does well if there’s a housing boom. I know it’s got a bad chart, that’s what’s sending it down. Maybe you wait a week or two, but boy is that a good company.”

ViacomCBS: “I kind of like the media stocks. Ever since that Archegos, they’ve given up the ghost. Let’s go back to them. I think they’re going to have a pretty good fall and I like Viacom here. I think they did a good job, and I think it’s time to buy it.”

OraSure Tech: “There’s like so many guys doing this. Can’t do it. I’m sorry.”


Tuesday, June 15th

Vertex Pharma: “I think it’s a good opportunity to actually pick some Vertex up.”

Turtle Beach: “Turtle Beach happens to be in a crowded beach. I like Logitech.”

Eli Lilly: “Time to sell Eli Lilly.”

Commercial Vehicle: “You’ve got horse sense. That is one good stock. I am with you. Call me a buyer, particularly if the Federal Reserve stays the course.”

Goldman Sachs: ”$350 is the level that I want to get back in ... and I would do it slowly.”

Snap: “I was quick to judge [CEO] Evan Spiegel, thought that maybe he was too Hollywood, but it turns out no. He was on the right side of the tracks. He’s gotten it together. I welcome him on the show anytime, and I think Snap’s a winner.”


Wednesday, Jun 16th

Martin Marietta Materials: “Well-run company. Doesn’t need the stimulus, doesn’t need the infrastructure package. Just needs for this country to stay on course. Might be a little rocky here, but I like it.”

Bank of America: “We’re saying that over the next four or five days, there could be some weakness in the market, but I agree that Bank of America is an excellent institution and if you think that rates ultimately will have to go up — which the Fed certainly said — Bank of America is going to go higher, so I am in favor of holding and then buying a couple days from now.”

CRISPR Therapeutics: “Here’s the problem with CRISPR, if they called it anything else other than CRISPR, people wouldn’t be drawn to it, but people are so into CRISPR stuff they’re like, ‘Oh, let me buy this one.’ I’ve got to tell you: I honestly would prefer to see you in Vertex, which has just got hammered, or Regeneron, where the news is very good.”

Advanced Micro Devices: “May of last year it was at $52, now it’s $80. Lisa Su is doing an amazing job. Here’s what I think happens ultimately: I think when that Xilinx deal closes, that stock just soars. I’m urging you to buy it right here, right now.”

AT&T: Not recommended


Thursday, June 17th

Senseonics Holdings: “That competes against Dexcom and competes against Abbott, which are big competitors, so it’s just a speculative one.”

Celsius Holdings: “My guys downtown on my morning show, they love it, too, and I love it. I think it’s a sensation.”

Contextlogic: “Oh man, that’s a [meme stock]. ... I was actually doing a piece on [Contextlogic]. Can we save it?”


Friday, June 18th

SoFi: “I am a buyer of [CEO] Anthony Noto. I think he does a great job. But candidly, he’s also been my friend since 1995.”

GoodRx: “I like GoodRx, the coupon business. But I’ve got to tell you, I just have this bad feeling. They’re up against Amazon in some way, shape or form — or, at least, that’s what the market thinks. That’s more important because they really aren’t, but people always fear Amazon. I’m going to say you have to stay away for now. ... It’s got an Amazon issue.”

Williams-Sonoma: “It is amazing that that stock is going down. You are completely right. I don’t think it should be going down. The problem is it’s up 48%, and everybody is trying to nail down profits. But [CEO] Laura Alber is going a great job. I am a buyer, not a seller, of Williams-Sonoma.”

Vizio: “People have given up on this company. I think it’s wrong to give up on it. I still it expect it to come down a little bit more as people are in panic mode. Vizio, I say let it go to $18, maybe $17, and then I would [buy].”

C3 AI: “People don’t even understand what the company does. ... Other people are bailing, so let’s wait until they’re done bailing and we can buy it lower.”
