5 Loved Stocks That Missed the Rally
Monday, 11 Mar 2013 | 5:00 PM ET
Some of Wall Street's favorite stocks have underperformed the market. The "Fast Money" traders weigh in on whether they'd jump in.

Some of Wall Street's favorite stocks have underperformed the recent rally, but is it too late to get in?

The CNBC "Fast Money" traders weighed in Monday on five of the most-loved stocks that have lagged year to date. The stocks include:

Broadcom, with 36 "buy" ratings, gained 1.5 percent year to date.

EMC, with 31 "buy" ratings, declined 3 percent.

UnitedHealth, with 17 "buy" ratings, was flat.

Simon Property, with 16 "buy" ratings, gained 1 percent.

Agilent, with 14 "buy" ratings, gained 4 percent.

Tim Seymour of EmergingMoney.com liked UnitedHealth on their Brazil outlook, something he said would add significantly to its bottom line.

"They're going to be the dominant player," he said. "They will get significant growth out of Latin America. This is undemanding valuation. This is a chart that looks interesting. I would take a bite."

Stuart Frankel's Steve Grasso liked the technicals in Broadcom, which he said seemed "to be making higher lows" and was "worth a shot."

"There's still room here to ratchet back up," he added. "I think you can buy it still on a 50 percent retracement, and there's a lot of upside."

OptionMonster's Pete Najarian said that although EMC didn't "sound all that exciting," it could likely catch up to peers such as Cisco and Oracle.

"I think it's going higher," he added.
