Nell from California

Nell writes, “After two rallies in a row do we transition to buying the drops or selling the pops?”

Continue to sell the pops, replies Jeff Macke. It’s hard to tell the value of companies in this environment.


Royal from North Carolina

Royal writes, "How much has the rally in financials been related to the SEC’s short sale proposals?"

They might have been responsible for some of the rally, replies Karen Finerman, but I think it’s mostly because the space was oversold.


A Viewer from Washington

A viewer writes, “What’s your position in natural gas now that oil is on the decline? Chesapeake is down $10.”

I own Chesapeake and I’m holding it, replies Pete Najarian.
