4 stocks to watch amid market swings

After another wild session for stocks Wednesday, "Fast Money" traders picked plays that they felt would limit damage ahead.

Major U.S. averages bounced off their Wednesday lows and mounted a reversal before closing the session lower. All three are in correction territory, more than 10 percent lower than their 52-week intraday highs.


Amid the swings, trader Guy Adami looked to the bond market. The price of the U.S. 10-year Treasury note rose Wednesday, sending its yield below 2 percent.

He called the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF the "easiest" way to play the bond market. It has climbed 5 percent this year.

Trader Pete Najarian sees upside in Microsoft ahead of its quarterly results next week. He highlighted growth in the company's cloud computing business and touted its dividend yield.


Selling in retail has looked "overdone" relative to company fundamentals, said trader Karen Finerman. The Spdr S&P Retail ETF has fallen more than 9 percent this year, and she believes it has room to rise after the weakness.

Philip Morris

Trader Brian Kelly looked to tobacco company Philip Morris, which has beaten broader markets by falling about 2 percent this year. He outlined possible benefits like its dividend yield.
