Your First Move For Wednesday, Aug. 18

Here’s our Fast Money Final Trade, where the traders give you the best plays for Wednesday.

Patty Edwards, principal at Storehouse Partners, thinks Syngenta is a good way to play the ag trade.

"A lot of M&A activity made me think about Apache ," said Joe Terranova, chief market strategist at Vitrus Investment Partners. "Great acquisitions it made from BP with those assets. Get long it on this pullback."

Guy Adami, managing director at Drakon Capital thinks Monsanto might have bottomed out and recommends taking a look at this stock.

In the M&A space, Karen Finerman, president and co-founder of Metropolitan Capital Advisors, said she likes Genzyme Oct. 70 calls.

Gary Kaminsky, a CNBC contributing editor and former Neuberger Berman money manager, is bullish on Expeditors International of Washington .
