Fast Fire – Friday Mar. 14th

Sometimes a stock is hot and other time it just burns. Following are the Fast Money misfires.

Guy Adami

Just last Tuesday the Negotiator looked at $100 oil and said, “Your instinct would be to buy ExxonMobil . Don't do it, it's the wrong trade."

Maybe you should trust your instincts. Since that call shares of Exxon are up some 3%.

Adami isn't convinced. I still wouldn’t race into integrated oil, he counsels.

Karen Finerman

On March 5th the Chairwoman went shopping for a high end retailer. At the time she said, "Saks , I'm long the stock."

Finerman didn’t get the bargain she’d hoped for. Shares of Saks are off some 20% since her buy recommendation.

I was wrong, says Finerman. When a stock is down 20% it’s time to cut your losses and get out.

Pete Najarian

On March 4th the Pit Boss dialed up a cell phone play. At the time he said, "I like Nokia at this level."

Unfortunately for Najarian he didn’t have a good connection. Shares of Nokia are down since his call.

Najarian remains optimistic. I think Nokia is a buy for the long-term, he says.

Joe Terranova

On February 7th, the Liquidator was bullish on a lumber company. At the time he said, "Weyerhauser is a buy; a good way to play it is on the long side."

Looks like money doesn’t grow on trees. Since the call WY is down 2%.

Terranova isn't afraid to admit his mistakes. It was a bad call on my part, he says.
