The catalyst:Facebook began testing a new advertising model, intended to boost the growth of its digital ad sales.

The trade: It’s positive news and it looks like the stock may have finally bottomed, says Mike Murphy. I think it could go higher.


Alpha Natural

The catalyst:Alpha Natural announced plans to further scale back production, with lower supply potentially putting a floor under prices.

The trade: A note from Tudor Pickering said coal names are undervalued, adds trader Steve Grasso. I’m cautious, the note has put a bid in the entire space.



The catalyst: Published reports suggested that Supervalu would make a good takeout candidate for private equity.

The trade: Supervalu has a lot of debt and traffic has been weak, says trader Stephanie Link. If you’re looking for a retail trade, I’d look at Target.


Regions Financial

The catalyst: Goldman Sachs upgraded Regions to Buy from Neutral saying it still has further upside as real estate values recover in the U.S. southeast.

The trade: I agree, says Simon Baker, I think it could have more room to run.
