Earnings reports were among the factors that drove major U.S. indexes lower on Tuesday. The Dow, for instance, plummeted nearly 300 points on the day.
But market reaction to earnings was not entirely bleak, as some companies reporting later in the day saw shares surge after their announcements. After a day when notable stocks reacted sharply to earnings, CNBC's "Fast Money" traders looked at how to play the big moves.
Apple- The tech giant handily beat Wall Street expectations for both quarterly earnings and revenue, bolstered by better-than-expected iPhone sales. Shares climbed nearly 6 percent in after-hours trading, up to around $115 per share.
Investors shouldn't sell on the jump, said trader Dan Nathan. However, the price may start to see resistance at $120 per share and above, where investors should start to be wary, traders said.
"Somewhere north of $120 you start to be careful," trader Tim Seymour said.
Yahoo- While the company reported mixed quarterly results, its stock moved more than 3 percent higher on news that it would spin off its $40 billion in Alibaba shares into an independent entity. At around $51 per share, investors could still get Yahoo's core business for "next to nothing," said trader Guy Adami.
Caterpillar- Shares dropped more than 7 percent on Tuesday after the company missed quarterly earnings expectations. The drop brought the stock to about $79 per share, where it "looks interesting," Seymour said.
Adami agreed, adding that it provides an opportunity to carve a long stake in Caterpillar.
AT&T- Subscriber growth propelled the telecom giant to quarterly earnings that slightly beat expectations. Shares rose nearly 2 percent in after-hours trading.
"I don't think you're going to get hurt on AT&T here," Seymour said.
U.S. Steel- Shares went about 9 percent higher in after-hours trading after the company beat quarterly earnings expectations. Sitting around $23 per share, the stock remains cheap and is "very interesting," Seymour said.
