Cit group: Agree good time to dump that stock.

CBS Corp: This is a stock to hold long term and not look at it for a few years. It might make your stomach turn if you watch it daily.

W&T: This is a stock to buy or hold. There numbers have to report damage from hurricane Ike, but I think they are pretty much moving on and should show some $$ coming in the next year. They survived the 1980s, that says a lot about this company. They can plan :)

Embraerempresa Brasileira De Aeronutica: Don't have an opinion
