Friday, 5 Apr 2013 | 5:25 PM ET
The Fast Money traders have their eyes on next week's earnings parade, and the FOMC minutes. Also, the outcome of a match-up between Bank of America and Honeywell. And, the final trades of the week.

Finishing off the semifinal round to determine who goes to the championship match-up and face off against Google was a battle between top-seeded Bank of America and second-seeded industrial giant Honeywell.

No. 2 Honeywell vs. No. 1 Bank of America

"Either of them, I'm not that happy about buying," Brian Kelly of Shelter Harbor Capital said, picking Bank of America because he didn't want to be in the industrial space.

Karen Finerman of Metropolitan Capital Advisors made it 2-0 for Bank of America.

"I also like the U.S.-ness of it," she said. "And the valuation. I like it a lot"

Stuart Frankel's Steve Grasso was also a fan of BAC.

"It can only mean that Honeywell wins," he joked.

Tim Seymour of EmergingMoney.com made it unanimous among the "Fast Money" traders, siding with Bank of America.

"I think the money center banks are the ones that are going to do the best in the first quarter," he said.

Throwing their support behind industrial giant Honeywell, the "Fast Money" Twitter followers were outmatched.
