Stick with financial names that have performed well recently as Federal Reserve stress test results surface, advised CNBC "Fast Money" trader Steve Grasso.
The annual tests—results of which will start to be released Thursday—assess how well banks can resist a market shock. Investors eyeing financials should look at Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs, all of which have jumped more than 8 percent in the last month, Grasso said.
"These are the names that obviously the market has placed the bets on," he said.
Trader Dan Nathan, on the other hand, picked a weakness play. Bank of America closed Wednesday just below $16 per share.
If anything causes it to slip below $15 per share, the level could make a good entry point, he said.
Deutsche Bank is a "solid name," said trader Pete Najarian. It climbed about a half a percent on Wednesday, and Najarian believes it has room for upside.
