Fast Money Final Call
Trading the tech sector, with Fast Money's Carter Worth and Dylan Ratigan.

Intel : The “feeble rally” back to $21 from its lows at $17 doesn’t give Worth much hope. He thinks the stock is running out of steam and the next important move will be to the downside. (reports Tuesday)

IBM : Big Blue killed its earnings last quarter and Worth thinks it could pull off another beat this time. The stock consistently touches its top at $117 and is toying with a breakout. Momentum off a better-than-expected earnings report could make it happen. (reports Wednesday)

Google : After surging from $400 to $750 late last year, Google has managed to give almost all of those gains back. Worth said that kind of aggressive re-pricing signals to him that the stock is “dead money” for months to come. (reports Thursday)
