Web Extra: Burned By DryShips

A long position in DryShips looked like a hot trade to Pete Najarian but all it did was burn him. So how does he suggest playing this stock now?

The Pit Boss made the fateful call on December 15th largely as a momentum play.

“In 2011, the shippers will have plenty of upside,” he said with conviction. “I think they'll gain some momentum. I'm not saying they're going to go back to where they were, but I think they've got some upside definitely in 2011.”

Unfortunately, they had as much upside as a lead balloon. Since he said to go long shares of DryShips have collapsed about 20%.

So what does Najarian think of this stock now? Find out in this web extra. Watch the video now!
