Major U.S. and European indexes struggled on Monday as Wall Street slogs through an earnings seasons that has largely disappointed.
CNBC "Fast Money" trader Brian Kelly said that looking for growth in the current market is "dangerous." Opportunities can still be found, however, and CNBC's "Fast Money" traders discussed the sectors they believe hold the best growth prospects.
Economic trends point to strong growth for companies in the housing sector, trader Pete Najarian said. Some home builders have "plenty of room to the upside still," he argued.
"I look at the way the economy is improving, I look at the lower rates and I look at the cash positions of some of these," Najarian said.
He eyed home construction materials producer Masco in particular. It traded to about $26 per share on Monday.
Trader Karen Finerman looked to a newer investment—drones.
She has yet to take on any exposure to the sector. However, she says "we are just on the cusp of the proliferation of drones in a very big way. "
Drone maker AeroVironment, which ended just below $27 per share on Monday, could provide a good entry point in the space, Finerman said.
Trader Dan Nathan believes China, the world's most populous country, holds growth opportunities. Chinese Internet usage is "going off the charts," Nathan said.
Kelly liked the potential for growth in aerospace and defense. Despite pressures on government defense spending, some companies in the sector have room to run, he argued.
