No. 9 Transocean vs. No. 2 Honeywell

StockMonster's Guy Adami made it short and sweet.

"Honeywell's the best industrial company out there," he said. "Honeywell should win this one for sure."

Dan Nathan of RiskReversal.com was also succinct.

"For this round, I'm going RIG — Transocean," he said.

EmergingMoney.com's Tim Seymour saw a lot more potential in Transocean.

"RIG is a company that's underowned, is tomorrow's trade, and why wouldn't you rather be in that yesterday's trade?" he said.

Jon Najarian liked the arguments for Transocean, but he saw a big headwind.

"I don't think this president's a big fan of deep-water drilling. I think that's going to be very difficult," he said, acknowledging the company's large presence off the coast of Brazil. "I don't think that's going to be enough to have them outperform, so I'm going to go with Honeywell."

The 2-2 tie took the contest to the "Fast Money" Twitter crowd, which broke the 2-2 tie with a vote for Honeywell, which moves into the match-ups between the final four names.
