The Word On NYSE, AMAT Earnings...


The headline: A Viewer Asks For The Traders' Thoughts On NYSE-Euronext (NYX)

Steve from PA writes “I have been watching the exchange sector get some love lately, with NYSE Euronext (NYX) being left behind. A few weeks ago, the consensus was that this was one of the Fast Money Five’s favorites. What gives?”

Eric Bolling says he prefers the derivative exchanges not the NYX. Tim Strazzini likes the International Securities Exchange (ISE). Guy Adami tells investors as long as John Thain runs the NYSE, stay with the stock.
