Our traders are good - but you knew that! Check out their latest picks that paid.

Pete Najarian

On January 17th the Pit Boss had a hunch about where to find oil. At the time he said, “The only thing right now that looks attractive are the refiners. I would keep Tesero and Valero very high on your list. Both those names should go up.”

The Pit Boss picked the bottom. Since his call, shares of these refiners have climbed more than 9% each.

Tim Seymour

On January 22nd the Ambassador recommended investors not buy American. At the time he said, "Look at the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Indx. Suddenly, it’s not a bad time to get excited about the overall pick to play emerging markets. Also I would be very excited to own the iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index right now certainly on a 6 – 12 month basis."

Seymour sensed this week’s the sell-off overseas was a buying opportunity. The ETFs representing China, Brazil and a basket of emerging market plays are all up nearly 8% in just a few days.

Karen Finerman

On January 18th the Chairwoman anticipated an improvement in home improvement. At the time she said, “Look at Home Depot . It’s oversold.”

If you watch the show regularly, you know that we grilled Finerman over her Home Depot call in 2007, but she stuck to her guns, and in 2008, HD finally came to roost. Shares are up 9% since the year began.

Guy Adami

On January 22nd the Negotiator suggested a play that left investors smiling all the way to the bank. At the time he said, Wachovia. They reported a terrible fourth quarter, but then CEO came out and said he had no plans to cut the dividend. Well two things are going to happen. Either the stock’s going to go up significantly because it yields 7.9% or he’s lying.”

The Negotiator found a play amid the panic. Shares of Wachovia are up nearly 20% in just three days.

Now that’s Fast Money.
