It's time for more Fast Money Madness! As the NCAA tournament marches on, we're pairing off the most-talked about 64 companies on the street. The guys will determine the winners through debate, and end up with a national champion -- Fast Money's favorite stock.
Tonight we bring you the best names in the commodity and industrial space.
The first big match up of the night: #16-seed Nucor (NUE) versus #4-seed BHP Billiton (BHP).
Jeff Macke chooses BHP – because they’re expanding iron ore operations in Australia.
Tim Straazini likes BHP for it’s diversification – it’s not just a steel play.
Guy Adami goes with Nucor because steel demand is on the rise and inventory is going down.
Eric Bolling can’t decide – so he picks Nucor, creating a tie and forcing The Commissioner to make the call.
Dylan Ratigan says BHP advances.
Onto the next big match up of the night: #6 seed Valero (VLO) versus #7 seed Deere & Co (DE).
Jeff Macke says refiners are on fire – but Deere has more infront of it. He picks DE.
Tim Strazzini says VLO has another 10% in it – and he likes Valero.
Guy Adami picks DE because they just made an acquisition that’s going to increase their footprint.
Eric Bolling does it again – he can’t decide so he picks Valero – crating a tie and forcing The Commissioner to decide again.
Dylan Ratigan says he loves a green tractor and Deere advances.
