Web Extra: Trader Musings On Round 1 Results

Monday, 22 Mar 2010 | 6:03 PM ET

The first round of Fast Money Madness has ended and the results may surprise you. Find out who’s got game in this year’s competition!

As you may know, we’ve ranked stocks in the S&P 500 by four major industries. In the first round of play we eliminated half of the competitors.

And some of the rivalries may be telling. For example:

McDonalds (14) beat Merck (3) in a blowout with 76% of the vote favoring Mickey D.

The Fast Money crew offers special CNBC.com-only advice on your investments.

However Alcoa (16) triumphed over United Tech (1) in a buzzer beater with Alcoa only scoring 50.1% of the vote!

Going forward we’ve got some pretty interesting match-ups. For example:

Google (1) vs Microsoft (8) ; Does Google’s potential pullout of China weaken its chances later in tourney?

Goldman Sachs (2) vs Bank of America (10) ; BofA already defeated Goldman’s broker-rival Morgan Stanley in Round 1.

How will it play out? You decide. Text the word MADNESS to 26221 to start playing (message and data rates may apply).
