The Friday Trade

“September was a great party—everyone was glad to be a part of it, no one really knew what happened but they were glad it was there,” Craddock told CNBC.(Scroll down to see his full picks.)

In the meantime, Wilsey said investors should sellgold and bonds because they are overpriced.

“If you missed the September rally, don’t miss the next quarter—you’ll be upset again,” he said.

“We’ve got earnings coming out and I think they’ll be pretty good, CEOs are cautiously optimistic, we’ve got the election in November, and I think we’ll have a jolly holiday season—and so the place to be is start buying these companies now.”
