'Invest More, Trade Less' in This Sector: Pros
A couple of financial stocks appear strong through 2013, the "Fast Money" pros say.

Two financial stocks should be on investors' radar screens, Stuart Frankel's Steve Grasso said Tuesday on CNBC.

While JPMorgan was the best bank to own, Goldman Sachs was one to watch; if it holds its $118-per-share level, looking to hit $130.

"Technically the setup here, either JPMorgan or Goldman Sachs," he said on "Fast Money."

Bank of America, however, appeared over-owned, Grasso added.

"Goldman looks like if it can peek its head above the near-term trend line, it goes a lot higher," said Mike Murphy of Rosecliff Capital.

Bank of America, he added, was "way, way, way overbought."

Joe Terranova of Virtus Investment Partners said financials – the second-best performing S&P 500 sector in 2012 – also looked good for the longer term.

"I think financials are one of the leading sectors in 2013," he said. "You don't move away from it, whether it's Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley or JPMorgan. You actually invest more in it and trade less."

Stephen Weiss of Short Hills Capital said that the sector's fundamentals looked strong and he wasn't taking any off the table.

"I think it continues to go higher," he said.
