The Fast & the Furious
An outlook on key financial news, with the Fast Money traders, with Brian Gesuale, Raymond James.

NO PLACE LIKE HOME:Home Depot reports on Tuesday, a profit of 28 cents is expected, a decline of 31%.

The stock's had a nice run from $19 to $27, explains Guy Adami. If they miss and pull back it's a buy.


GETTING DEFENSIVE: As the market turns negative should you get defensive, literally?

My favorite name in the space is FLIR Systems , says Raymond James aerospace analyst Brian Gesuale. I would buy it here.


TARGET ON TARGET? Retail titan Target is set to report earnings next Wednesday; a profit of 59 cents is expected, a decline of 20% year over year.

I'm in bed with Wal-Mart, says Karen Finerman.


DEERE IN LIGHTS: Deere reports earnings next week, a profits of 1.08 is expected, a decline of 38% year over year.

I think it's a buy on a pullback, says Pete Najarian.


KING DIMON? JPMorgan holds its annual shareholder meeting on Wednesday.

I think this stock is range bound, counsels Tim Seymour. A lot of good news is already baked in.


MIND THE GAP: Gap reports earnings next Thursday; a profit of 30 cents is expected, a decline of 12% year over year.

The stock is probably ahead of itself, says Guy Adami, but they're running the company better. In the long-run that's very bullish for the stock.


TAKING ITS TOLL? Toll Brothers reports next week; a loss of 33 cents is expected.

I do think the space is bottoming out, speculates Karen Finerman.


I'M A PC? Hewlett Packard reports next Tuesday, a profit of 86 cents is expected, a 2% decline year over year.

I believe Hewlett Packard may have found its base in the mid-30's, muses Pete Najarian.
