Trading In Fed's Wake


The Federal Reserve cut two key interest rates by a quarter point, disappointing financial markets, which were hoping for a half-point cut. Can you profit from it?

Traders have to put Tuesday's Fed decision behind them says Guy Adami on CNBC’s Closing Bell. Secular growth stories remain in tact despite the Fed, he adds, and they remain in play.

Here's what the traders recommend:

Jeff Macke – Activision (ATVI)
Pete Najarian - Apple (AAPL)
Karen Finerman - Floweserve (FLS)
Guy Adami - Intel (INTC)

And if you want to play financials, Adami adds, only go best in breed, I recommend US Banccorp (USB) which Warren Buffett doubled his position in.
