Crazy As 100 Squirrels In A Bag


What are the best trades when a volatile market acts like 100 squirrels in a bag?

Pete Najarian: Big Pharma works. Merck (MRK) feels insulated, Genentech (DNA) will do well because of its pipeline. Biogen (BIIB) has limited downside.

Karen Finerman: Play defense with stocks like Altria (MO) and Kraft (KFT).

Guy Adami:Altria (MO), Unilever (UL) and Procter & Gamble (PG) are the best defensive plays.
