As we move into the thick of earnings season, which stocks do the Fast Money traders think should be on your radar, next week?
Joining this conversation is Jim Iuorio of TJM Institutional Services. He's a Fast Money regular and also part of the new CNBC show “Options Action”
“I’m particularly interested in Microsoft and Johnson & Johnson . I think any bad news is already baked into these stocks and as a result both are a buy.”
“Microsoft tends not to pop so much after earnings because they usually report mediocre numbers.”
“Microsoft has been trading in a range between $19 - $22, but I do think it has some upside.”
“I think Microsoft is a cheap stock but I’ve been saying that for some time.”
“Next week Google comes out with earnings. I like this stock.”
