Investors fled to the safety of Uncle Sam, Monday. According to Bloomberg, 3-month Treasury bill yields (which move inversely to prices) tumbled the most since October 1987 when the stock market crashed. If investors are this frightened, how can stocks mount a sustainable rally?
Stacy Briere Gilbert suggests The Fed’s move last week, didn’t do what it was intended to do. Short-term lending issues are not going away, she says.
Jeff Macke thinks the financials would be down double digits without The Fed.
Pete Najarian agrees that there’s nervousness. He feels dividend yielding stocks, as well as pharma and biotech are starting to become more attractive. He also likes select tech names such as Cisco, (CSCO) and Intel (INTC).
Guy Adami thinks this environment gives investors a great opportunity to own select quality names. He likes GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Fluor (FLR), Juniper (JNPR) and Network Appliance (NTAP).
