From a Britney Spears comeback to advice on shorting the Dow, the Fast Money traders have a solution to viewers’ questions.




Please tell me, who has a better chance of a comeback: Britney Spears or Chico's (CHS)? –Roger, FL

Britney has a better chance because “specialty retail never, ever comes back,” Jeff Macke said.

Why is Sun Microsystems (JAVA) not growing? This is a major American technology company that has great products and is trading way below its competitors. Why is that? It is time for the market to reward good American companies. – Franklyn, NY

“This is not a good American company,” Pete Najarian said. It’s a “failure,” a “debacle” and a “heartbreak” and now it can’t get out of its own way. Stick with the best: Cisco (CSCO).

I'm being called foul names as my friends question my sanity in shorting oil. I think when the Fed stalls on lowering rates it will be the market killer. My question is: with all these job cuts and a stalled Fed is it time I short the Dow with (DOG)? Arf! Arf! –Joe, OH

Karen Finerman wouldn’t get on board with those assumptions about job cuts or the Fed stalling. She would rather be short oil than long, though.
