Sell the Rips

Tuesday, 11 Mar 2008 | 6:27 PM ET

A huge rally in a precarious market could open up a window to unload dead-weight stocks at good prices. Fast Money’s Jon Najarian offered up his “trash” picks – stocks he would sell if the rally holds on Wednesday.

Tomorrow's Trades #1
Discussing which stocks to sell following the Fed-induced pop, with with Jon Najarian, Optionsmonster.com and the Fast Money traders.

USO : This oil fund has rallied so dramatically that it’s due for a pullback, Jon said. He also noted that he saw increasingly heavy put buying in the stock, solidifying his belief that a sell off is imminent. After all, the USO moved $18 in the last month alone. Few things stay that hot forever. Check out the DUG ETF , he added, which is a leveraged short bet against oil.

Washington Mutual and Fannie Mae : Both these financials are becoming hotbeds of put activity, Jon said. On the flip side, student loan provider Sallie Mae is benefiting from heavy call buying. Why the disparity? As Jon put it, people can default on their home loans but not on their student loan payments.

Williams-Sonoma : After seeing a huge move higher on very little volume, Guy Adami predicted bad news could be coming in this retailer that would move its stock substantially lower.
