Burned by Yahoo!, Disney and More

They looked like hot stocks. So how are the traders playing Yahoo!, Disney and more now that they’ve been burned!

Guy Adami

On October 20th the Negotiator thought Yahoo! was something to shout about. “I think this is a stock you continue to need to own,” he said, “If it does pull back for whatever reason you need to buy it... Yahoo! should be $20 stock.”

As it turns out this trade was nothing to should about. Since Adami said to get long shares have moved substantially lower. So, what does he have to say about Yahoo! now?

I think Yahoo! is a play on CEO Carol Bartz and I still like it, he explains.

Joe Terranova

On November 4th the Liquidator suggested moving to the sidelines in Disney. “Look at the valuation of where Disney is right now.. it’s a little rich,” he said.

Ah, but never forget that Mickey usually has some kind of magic up his sleeve. Since Terranova said to avoid this stock it’s marched higher on strong earnings. So, what does he have to say about Disney, now?

Disney is defying logic, he admits. I was wrong and I'd be long.

Karen Finerman

On October 12th the Chairwoman thought the ratings arm of McGraw-Hill rated the stock a sell, largely due to a looming lawsuit against its S&P unit. "I am not a believer in the ratings agencies,” she said. And I don't think their textbook business is great. Don't get on board with MHP."

But as it turned out Finerman should have rated McGraw-Hill, the parent of S&P, with a buy. Shares turned higher since she turned bearish. So, what does she have to say about this trade now?

I was wrong but I'd stay away, she counsels.
