Burned By JPMorgan, IBM & More

Share

They looked like hot stocks. So how are the traders playing JPMorgan, IBM and more now that they’ve been burned?

Guy Adami

On July 14th the Negotiator suggested taking a shot at a Wall Street heavyweight. “Short JP Morgan,” he said. “I think it still sinks. And if it closes above $35 and a quarter you're out.”

Unfortunately, Adami made the wrong move and found himself down for the count. After posting a 36% rise in quarterly profits, the stock jumped over 10%. So what does he have to say for himself?

I was wrong, says Adami, but that's why a tight stop is critical.

Joe Terranova

On July 7th the Liquidator jumped out of a trade a tad too early. “You can't hang in there with IBM,” he said. “The way that it's performed over the last 3, 4 days, you've got to move to the sidelines.”

Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing. After making his exit, the stock soared another 17%. So what does he have to say for himself?

I still expect the stock to pull back, says Terranova.

Tim Seymour

On July 14th the Ambassador suggested keeping your distance from GE, the parent of CNBC. “Technically and tactically, I would not jump into this stock in the short-term.”

But since he said to pass, GE has been in play climbing 9% after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock to “Buy.”

I'm still concerned that stock is challenged at $13.50, Seymour says.
