Default level of stress

Hi, here's a phrase: "You can call me Peter." I think that "call" and "Peter" are the stressed words in the phrase. Am I right? If I'm correct the last content word gets the most stress. But if "Peter" gets primary stress, is the secondary stress on "call"? or "call" also gets primary stress as "Peter"? I would be grateful for any suggestion.
