Strategy Session with CNBC’s Fast Money traders
Trader Joe Terranova, chief market strategist for Virtus suggests a long position in McDonald’s. He feels the stock was recently oversold, and that a weak economy benefits the franchise as people trade down. “I think it runs to $94,” he says.
Trader Guy Adami, managing Director of stockMONSTER.com, is bullish on Freeport McMoran. Although the stock has suffered sharp declines recently, Adami believes the stock made a meaningful reversal on Thursday. “I’d trade it long with a tight stop around $31.50.”
Tim Seymour, founder of EmergingMoney.com, thinks resource companies such as BHP are worth a look. “This stock has ground through horrendous global growth data,” he says. Any kind of upside surprise should send shares much higher.
