Now, Look for Bulletproof Stocks: Pro

There's one name that showed resiliency despite a Fed-induced dip in stocks, Stuart Frankel's Steve Grasso said Wednesday.

"I've been waiting to buy Google, and Google has been bulletproof," he said on CNBC's "Fast Money."

While the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 206 points and the S&P 500 stumbled 22.88 points to close at 1,628.93, shares of Google closed up 6 cents at $900.68.

Josh Brown of Fusion Analytics noted that consumer staples had gotten "crushed."

"What you want to focus on is the names that act the best because that could be the leadership," he said.

Brown added that the market should welcome volatility following the Federal Open Market Committee meeting.

"The VIX was flat on the day, telling us this was a non-event," he said.

Dan Nathan of RiskReversal.com said that the Fed's comments suggested U.S. stocks were showing relative strength via UUP, while EEM was down 3 percent.

"I think as our rates are going higher, whether you like it or not," he added.

OptionMonster's Jon Najarian said that the Fed was looking to certain thresholds to cut back on its $85 billion-per-month asset purchases, even though there was no immediate signal it would happen anytime soon.

"I think people are trying to get ahead of the Fed," he said.
