Salesforce.com is primed for a continued rise amid speculation that larger rivals could bid to acquire it, CNBC "Fast Money" trader Steve Grasso said Tuesday.
Shares of the cloud computing company closed more than 1 percent higher amid a Bloomberg report that Microsoft was considering a bid for Salesforce. A takeout by Microsoft or another large software company "looks like it's got some more legs to it," Grasso said.
Traders also discussed how to navigate some of Tuesday's other big movers, beyond Salesforce.
Shares of media and entertainment giant Walt Disney closed slightly lower Tuesday despite the company posting quarterly earnings and revenue that topped Wall Street's expectations.Some market watchers have criticized Disney's valuation, as it currently trades at a price-to-earnings ratio of about 25, trader Guy Adami said.
He noted that "there aren't a lot of Disneys out there." Trader Tim Seymour contended that Disney will fare well as more cable companies continue to offer custom packages, because its ESPN network is a valuable asset.
The stock closed just below $111 per share Tuesday.
Video game maker Electronic Arts posted quarterly profit and sales that beat analysts' expectations Tuesday. The company behind the "Madden" NFL franchise and other popular titles also announced a $1 billion stock buyback.
The stock was up nearly 4 percent in extended trading, at about $61 per share.
EA is "absolutely on fire," said trader Brian Kelly. He contended that investors who already own the stock should hold it until at least November, when EA is slated to release a new "Star Wars" game.
Social media giant Facebook's shares fell more than 1 percent Tuesday. In the last 10 sessions, the stock has dropped nearly 8 percent.
