Web Extra Finerman’s Pitch: Long Polycom

As they say on TV, it’s the cold-calling segment that's sweeping the nation; one trader, one stock, and 30 seconds to make the case.

Karen Finerman is making the pitch for video conferencing in the wake of the Iceland volcano.

Will Polycom stock explode higher or blow up in her face?

Here are Finerman’s main points:

* Volcano Catalyst

* Possible Takeout Target

* Cheap Valuation, Good Earnings

With so many travelers stranded due to the volcano eruption some may revert to video conferencing, explains Finerman. And even if Polycom only gets a tiny piece of that business it's great for them.

But that's not all, she adds. They also released strong quarterly results and they could be a takeover target, she says.

You might say every cloud has its silver lining including the volcanic one, she chuckles.

What do you think? We want to know!
