From Zeroes To Heroes

Investors appear to be fleeing the once white hot commodities space in favor of tech and financials. How should you trade the rotation?

I think this trend has legs for at least the next several months, says Guy Adami. Investors have been in commodity stocks for a while and I expect them to get out. Financials appear undervalued to me, and I expect that's where they'll go. Look at Goldman Sachsand Wachovia, he counsels.

I agree, adds Karen Finerman. I bought Citigroupon Wednesday as a proxy for this space.

But take your time, adds Jeff Macke, Accumulate positions in both tech and financials but buy the dip.
