Your Questions About Energy Stocks, Retail and more

Question #1: Stephanie from Ohio wants to know, with specialty retailers set to report this week, which names do the guys like heading into earnings?

Jeff Macke likes Zumiez (ZUMZ) and Gymboree (GYMB) as trades on potentially strong earnings (both report this week). He also recommends getting long Home Depot (HD) as an investment.

Question #2: Susan from Washington has a question about energy stocks. She asks: Because of the recent interest in nuclear energy, my investments in Cameco (CCJ) and BHP Billiton (BHP) have risen quite nicely. Do you think these stocks will continue to rise or will the increased costs of uranium and power production put a halt to the rally soon? Should I sell some and buy back on dips on future earnings growth?



The nuclear game is for real, Eric Bolling says. It’s the only way to go, he says, and Susan is in two great uranium names. Eric would recommend taking off half – that way you can’t go wrong no matter if the stock dips or peaks. And with Cameco up 45% in the last two months, this might not be a bad place to take a little off the table, Eric says.

Question #3: Energy is a hot topic tonight. Christi from New York asks if the guys think energy stocks are the new tech stocks. Can anyone recommend the best way for an individual investor to start investing in energy stocks?

Let’s hope they aren’t the new tech stocks, Guy Adami says. He likes Chevron (CVX), which could be in a position to buy stock back after it sells its 12% stake in Dynegy (DYN). And Valero (VLO) is a buy on a valuation basis (and the fact that it’s cheaper than Tesoro (TSO)), he says. Last but not least, Guy likes Flour (FLR), which is an engineering company with 80 years of experience in refining.
