The Fast Money Misfires
Sometimes a stock is hot and other time it just burns. Following are the Fast Money misfires.
Last Thursday, The Lone Wolf had a change of heart on his handheld play. He said "I like Palm.. I'm getting long Yahoo! (YHOO) and Palm (PALM)."
Shares of Palm plummeted 5% since the call leaving Macke with little more than sweaty palms.
Despite the slide he tells the panel, Friday, that Palm is a long term play and he’s sticking with it.
On Tuesday October 2nd, Pete Najarian doubled-down on a gambling stock. He said, "I like Wynn Resorts (WYNN) better than I like Las Vegas Sands (LVS). I think they have more upside.
But the very next day, shares of WYNN crapped out and fell 8% over concerns about growth in Macau - the very catalyst Najarian was betting on.
Najarian doesn't like the loss, but he tells the panel to stick with this stock because he believes it has more upside.
On September 12th, the Chairwoman said to ditch a sneaker stock. “Skechers (SKX) was up a lot and then down… we’re out of Sketchers.”
But since Finerman's sell call, shares of Skechers (SKX)have been on a run, up 16%.
Finerman says at the time she felt retail was really getting hit and she doesn’t regret selling.
