The Word On Gas Prices Soaring 4%...

Thursday, 17 May 2007 | 8:41 PM ET

UNLEADED IRREGULAR:
The headline: Gasoline Surges More Than 4% To Highest Closing Price This Month


The word: Eric Bolling says there’s only one thing to do; own Chevron (CVX) because they own 2 of the 3 biggest refineries on the West Coast.

AIRLINE SURGE:
The headline: Airline Stocks Jump 3% - 4% On Thursday Trading

The word: Guy Adami explains Morgan Stanley and Lehman upgraded the sector to overweight, but Guy doesn’t think this is the bottom. Tim Strazzini adds JetBlue (JBLU), American Airlines (AMR) and Continental (CAL) are up 5%; they’re back on their feet strictly as a better valuation. Eric Bolling says investors who own airline stocks are out of their minds.
