Trading AAPL, NFLX and MCD in 2016

After a year in which some of the most talked about stocks saw diverging fortunes, "Fast Money" traders debated where they would go in 2016.

Shares of Netflix soared 134 percent for the year, while McDonald's saw the second-best gains in the Dow, rising 26 percent. Apple, meanwhile, slipped to its first negative year since 2008.

Apple could see a rebound next year after a rough stretch, trader Brian Kelly contended.

"At these levels, Apple is a great risk-reward going into next year," he said.

Trader Tim Seymour — a McDonald's shareholder — said investors should not "run" from the stock despite its gains. He cited momentum in same-store sales in its last quarterly report.

Trader Guy Adami agreed that shareholders should stick with McDonald's.

He also stressed that he believes investors should "absolutely" hold on to Netflix shares.
