Fast Message - We Answer Your Questions

Thursday, 24 Jan 2008 | 6:56 PM ET

Time to sort through the Fast Money in-box and answer more of your questions.

"Ask Pedro about the solar stocks if you will. Would he be long these names?"

I love the names but hate them right now, replies Pete Najarian. I think investors need to wait before getting back in.


"Lately I have seen my Altria stock go up in smoke. Are people becoming more healthy and giving up their vices?"

I like MO here, replies Karen Finerman and I’d stick with it.


"What’s the trade on Caterpillar going into earnings Friday?"

I think it’s cheap, replies Guy Adami. But it’s been a widow maker around earnings. In the low 60’s it’s probably a buy, he adds.


"What happens to the economy when the credit card debt hits the fan? Will banks go under?"

I think if the economy shows weakness it will hurt more, says Tim Seymour. However, I think a lot of the financial stocks have priced this in, already.
