Best Buy, Valero and Other Big Movers

Find out what’s going up, what’s going down and whether our traders would double down, fade or run in the other direction!

Best Buy dropped

The catalyst: Best Buy said that despite offering bigger discounts, they experienced weak demand for gadgets during the holiday selling season.

The trade: Before you make a move, ask yourself, can they compete with Amazon, counsels Zach Karabell. The market is highly skeptical.


Valero dropped
The catalyst:Credit Sussie cut 1Q EPS citing weak retail margins, VLO specific refinery maintenance and weak ethanol margins.

The trade: If you’ve been in this stock for the run up, I’d think about taking some off the table, says Patty Edwards.


Cabot Oil And Gas popped

The catalyst: Although there was no clear catalyst for the gains, investors may be betting Cabot was oversold – on Friday March 30th shares were down about 18% ytd.

The trade: If you want gas exposure, it’s a top name, but I don’t think it’s out of the woods yet, says Steve Grasso.


Corn popped
The catalyst: The USDA said corn stockpiles were lower than the Street expected, increasing concerns about tight supplies in the near-term.

The trade:
That’s bullish for the short-term but a government report also showed U.S. farmers will expand their corn plantings by 4 percent this spring to the largest in 75 years, explains Dennis Gartman.
