Your Questions About…. Railroads & Research in Motion


The Fast Money traders always enjoy hearing from you.

On Wednesday’s our pros tackled your questions about railroads and Research in Motion. Here’s what they had to say:


Q: Is there any explanation for the sizeable downward move in railroad stocks today $UNP  $CSX,  $NSC and $KSU on huge volume.

A: Trader Brian Kelly thinks it’s due to concerns about falling demand for coal. “A good portion of the activity in CSX is related to coal,” he says. And with nat gas prices so low  – more power plants are choosing that form of energy.



Q: I’ve got some RIMM.  What should I do outside of looking for a high bridge?

A: Karen Finerman says playing Research in Motion has everything to do with your trading thesis. “If you’re in it for a takeover, that’s probably a bad reason,” she says. "However if you’re in it because you think it’s a value, then hold on.”

But either way, she adds, how much you paid for RIM or any other stock shouldn’t matter. “Every day evaluate your thesis and then chose to either continue owning or not.”
