To help investors get their portfolios ready for next week, CNBC asked the market pros for their best stock picks now.
Stocks Under $10
“I think Motorola’s a buy here. You look at the handset division, and it’s so easy to tear it apart. So many analysts really think it’s going to go a lot lower, they’re losing market share, but they do have other aspects of their business that are worth an excess of $9 a share.”

Father's Day Stock Plays
On Harley Davidson : “Here’s a stock that back in November, 2006, was trading at $74 a share. We’re now down 47 percent on this stock, but yet their sales are up 2.7 percent year-over-year…It’s time to buy the bike and the stock.”

The Friday Trade
“The dollar’s probably been beaten to levels that make it very stable at these levels. I don’t think it’s going to run back up, and I think that is probably in the best interest of most Americans, and most American-based companies. You look at companies like Procter & Gamble , 180 products that help people all over the world flush, wash and brush—they’re going to continue to do great, and as long as the dollar doesn’t make a sharp rally, I think that kind of story continues.”
