Steve Grasso, Pete Najarian Say These Stocks Too Cheap

The stock market soared Monday amid optimism that Europe's debt crisis may have turned a corner and, finally, the market's massive headache is about to lift.

If those frightening headlines that have whipsawed the market for weeks are finally in the rear view mirror, then fundamentals should come back into play.

So where are the Fast pros putting their money to work?

Pete Najarian

Fast Money's Pit Boss
has got a eye on the materials and he's itching to pull the trigger. "Joy Global and Caterpillar are just too cheap," he says, on the belief that even if China's growth is slowing, it remains substantial.

However if you're a short term trader, he thinks it's better to wait and watch. "I think there will be a day to get into these names but not now." If fact, if you have new profits, Najarian suggests taking some off the table.

Steve Grasso

If you have an appetite for risk Fast Money's Governor sees opportunity in energy after Superior Energy inked a deal to buy smaller rival Complete Production Services in a cash-and-stock deal for about $2.6 billion.

"Look at Key Energy or Basic Energy," Grasso says. "These names look like they still have room to the upside. They've been under-appreciated," he says.

And if you can't stomach risk and would rather play it safer in this market, Grasso suggests gaming the utility space with Southern , Dominion Resources or simply the XLU .

Stephen Weiss

The co-founder of Short Hills Capital added a little to his positions in Allscripts Healthcare Solutions and Qualcomm . “I don’t believe in chasing markets, particularly this market,” he said, “but there are still some compelling values out there.”

However, he's also making a currency bet - Shorteuro against the dollar.

“When a currency—particularly a troubled currency—moves over two percent, to me that’s a time when you want to get in,” he said. “It doesn’t scare me away. I think it’s still going to par.” (Read more about this trade. Click here to go to Did ‘Merkozy’ Alter Fundamentals or Just Squeeze Shorts?)

Zach Karabell

Fast Money's Acamdemic is bullish and thinks last Monday’s 20 percent drop in the market may well prove to be a turning point. He thinks earnings should confirm that the U.S. is not deteriorating drastically and that the global growth story is expanding.
