The Fast Misfires


The best thing you can do from a mistake is learn from it – and this crazy week provided lots of opportunities to do just that. Following are the trades we'd like to have back.

Jeff Macke wishes he sold EMC Corp. (EMC) on the VMware IPO.

Pete Najarian feels he should have bought VMware when it pulled back.

Guy Adami regrets not waiting longer before buying Morgan Stanley (MS). It went down about 9% after he bought. Although he adds that he's in the black now.

Karen regrets not selling puts that went from $22 to $122.
