Is Apple’s Rotten Run Over?

Apple stock gained on Tuesday, but does that mean it's time to get back into the trade?

StockMonster's Guy Adami didn't think so. "Maybe above $485," he said, adding that the stock was "still in no-man's land."

Apple closed at $457.84 per share, up 3.5 percent.

On "Fast Money," Adami reiterated his preference for another tech play.

"I've said all along Qualcomm was a better play," he said.'s Tim Seymour saw shares of Apple in a positive light.

"I would rather be long Apple against the S&P here," he said.

Seymour also liked Apple over one of its leading competitors in the smartphone space.

"I'd also rather be long against Samsung, which I think is a better company, because on a risk-reward basis, again, look at where the S&P is, look at where Apple is on a valuation basis," he said. "This is, to me, totally a reversion-to-the-mean trade, and this is nothing more than a nine-month look."

"If Apple is not working, Samsung is not going to work either, and I would also look at that side of the trade," he added.
