Global equities popped on Thursday following news of the European Central Bank's expanded stimulus program. The and both turned positive for the year amid choppy stock trading.
With earnings season continuing Friday and potential for even more volatility, CNBC's "Fast Money" traders looked at how to play prominent technology names.
Google- Reports surfaced on Thursday that Google would begin selling mobile plans in deals with Sprint and T-Mobile. At the least, the venture could help Google out in the mobile advertising space, said trader Dan Nathan.
The Class C stock ended on Thursday at about $534 per share, and even if the company is a "one-trick pony" in the search space, it's still a great play at this price, said trader Karen Finerman.
Apple- Apple has proved a good play for the "buy and hold folks," said trader Guy Adami. Apple closed about 2.5 percent higher on Thursday around $112 per share.
Investors who think a downward move will follow Thursday's boost to U.S. equities could look to unload Apple shares at this level, said trader Steve Grasso.
"If you think the market is going to trail back, I think you sell some Apple," he said.
BlackBerry -The embattled smartphone company rose about 6 percent on Thursday. Investors should track the company's moves to gauge if an entry point will come this year, Nathan said.
"At some point this year something happens that creates some value here," he said.
Amazon- Amazon has been "popping" recently, Grasso said. Shares rose more than 4 percent on Friday.
Looking at companies in the enterprise computing space, Grasso would choose Amazon over Box, which starts publicly trading on Friday.
Sunedison- Finerman plans to stay in the solar energy company, which has moved with oil recently.
"I think they have great growth ahead of them," she said.
Facebook- The social media giant remains a "buy" at about $77 per share, where it ended on Thursday, Grasso said.
"I think it's got room to climb," he said.
T-Mobile- The mobile company "sets up technically the best" in the telecommunications sector, Grasso said.
