Buys Amid The Slaughter?

Thursday, 1 Nov 2007 | 6:35 PM ET

As the market trades lower, which stocks were unfairly beaten down and which should you stay away from?

Jonathan Merriman, Chairman & CEO of Merriman Curhan Ford & Co joins the panel for this conversation. Following are excerpts.

Smith & Wesson (SWHC) is a high growth company and the beating that it took this week was unjustified, says Merriman. At $10, buy that stock with both hands, he adds.

Discussing whether or not there are buys to be made amid the slaughter, with the Fast Money team.

Jeff Macke says he still likes videogame makers including Electronic Arts (ERTS) and Activision (ATVI), because the fundamentals are strong. Don’t worry about day to day sell-offs he counsels.

Guy Adami prefers Aministaff (ASF) as a stock that was unfairly beaten down.

Karen Finerman likes NYMEX (NMX) as well as Crocs (CROX).

Pete Najarian thinks Manitowoc (MTW) and Zimmer (ZMH) were both unjustly punished.
