Fast Money Misfires


Sometimes a stock is hot and other time it just burns. Following are the Fast Money misfires.

Guy Adami

Gary from Utah writes, “Guy, what’s up with your takeover call on NYSE Euronext (NYX)?” (Guy Adami had said it would be sold by Labor Day.)

“I still think it gets sold, says the Negotiator, but I wasn’t right about the timing.

Pete Najarian

On November 1st the Pit Boss recommended Manitowoc (MTW), a US crane company.

But shares of the stock fell like an old building on a construction site, down as much as 10% since the call.

The global growth story isn’t over, says Pete Najarian. Hold onto this stock.

Karen Finerman

The Chairwoman has some explaining to do. On November 8th she recommended a biotech —and back in September she said FiberTower (FTWR) was a buy, because it should benefit from a “back haul build.”

But since the call Bigoen (BIIB) dropped about 7% and FiberTower slipped a whopping 32%.

I’ve been a little disappointed with Biogen. However, I was clear about FiberTower, says Finerman. It’s risky. I think it will either go to zero or it will skyrocket. And, no matter what, it’s a long term play.

Jeff Macke

He's off the hook, this week.
