Matthew from Florida

Matthew writes, “Is a cable company such as Comcast (CMCSA) a good place to stay in a volatile market?”

Guy Adami says, “CMCSA does nothing for me.” He recommends Matthew buy Time Warner (TWX), instead.

Doug From New York

Doug writes “The great American companies Starbucks (SBUX) and Whole Foods (WFMI) have been acting strong. What do you think about them in this environment?”

Jeff Macke says if you have to buy one of these buy WFMI. However Jeff doesn’t really like either of these stocks.

Moni from Maryland

Moni writes, “I'm holding Research in Motion (RIMM) into its stock split (3:1) on August 20th. Should I continue to hold it after the split?

Eric Bolling says he’s nervous about RIMM on the downside. He recommends owning the stock but selling the covered call.
