Joe Terranova's Top 3 Trades

Thursday, 3 Nov 2011 | 6:03 PM ET

Now is the time to put some trades on and be in the marketplace, trader Joe Terranova said Thursday. Following are his top trades:

Caterpillar : During the company's earnings conference call last week, CEO Douglas Olberhelman said its global story remains intact. Its mining equipment business, in particular, is doing well. Terranova is bullish on the farming and mining equipment maker, as well as the mining business in general.

Joy Global : On word Caterpillar's mining segment is flourishing, Terranova is looking at mining equipment maker Joy Global. Being as it's a $9 billion company, he thinks it's a possible takeover target.

McDermott International : Terranova is bullish on this Houston, Texas-based oil and gas company. The company pre-announced "lousy" earnings results last week, but its stock has absorbed the bad news. Investors should go long against the $10.48 level, but Terranova thinks it could go to $14 a share.
