Stock picks: Bank of America , AT&T, Pfizer

The public has made a shift from spending to saving. The point is, Wall Street is a very good marketing organization. There's a whole lot of money that the public is no longer spending on houses and cars and Las Vegas, and Wall Street is going to get a piece of it, whether it's the brokers or the banks or the insurers.

So we own a bunch of Bank of America. Also, I recently bought AT&T for the first time probably ever. It has a 10% free cash flow yield [share price divided by free cash flow per share], and 6% of that's in the dividend. I bought Pfizer: 10% free cash flow, 3.5% dividend yield -- which means that they're not blowing all that cash.

NEXT: Steve Romick
