The Latest Picks That Paid – Friday August 14th

Our traders are good... but you knew that! Check out their latest picks that paid in a regular feature we call "Quicker Than The Ticker."

Tim Seymour

On August 3rd, the Ambassador made an upside call on Alcoa, saying "I'm worried about commodity prices going up and I'm worried mostly about aluminum going up, and I think this is a great looking chart. I'd own Alcoa here, and I do."

Turned out that Seymour was right on target, as the price of Aluminum jumped and shares of Alcoa followed, with the stock up 16%.




Karen Finerman

On August 4th, the Chairwoman called a bottom in real estate, looking at homebuilder Centex, saying "I think that Centex full-team merger was really a watershed event. That you had two guys with strong balance sheets coming together... I am long Centex. I actually think the bottom."

A good call from Finerman, since she made the call, shares of the home builder are up Up 10% after a competitor saw net contracts for new homes climb for the first time in four years.

Joe Terranova

On July 22nd, the Liquidator made a "buy" call on US Bancorp , saying "this is one of the names that I think you have to own. It is not a crowded trade, which you want to avoid in this environment where you talk about non-performing asset growth"

Since, the bank has picked up steam and Joe's trade has rallied 22%.

Leaving us with two words to sum it up: Fast Money.
