Clash of the tech titans: Traders pick big cap tech stocks

The "Fast Money" traders weighed the tech titans after Apple shares gained 3 percent on Wednesday.

Trader Pete Najarian said he believes Facebook has more momentum than Apple under CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The social media giant also has more products in its pipeline, Najarian said.

Trader Tim Seymour said that in an environment where investors pay more attention to valuation, Alphabet is a better stock to own than Apple. He said the parent company of Google has a "phenomenal balance sheet" like Apple, but may be better priced relative to its valuation.

Trader Dan Nathan agreed and said that Alphabet has more potential to break out. He said investors would get "more bang for their buck" than they would with Apple.
