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

Jeff Macke

On July 15th the Lone Wolf plunged head first into a “best of breed” financial. At the time he said, “The market opened very low, that was my shot to get long Goldman Sachs. I'm long Goldman in the low 150's."

Macke’s trade was certainly by the numbers. Shares of Goldman Sachs exploded 12 percent in the last three days as buyers rushed back into banks.

Pete Najarian

On July 10th the Pitt Boss called Huntsman Chemical the formula for fast money. At the time he said, “Keep an eye on Huntsman. It’s been beaten up and taken to the woodshed. A little bit of buying out there today some of the calls across the board, that’s the name everyone is speculating on..”

Najarian’s trade had all the ingredients for profits. Shares of the company surged 14 percent after mergers in the sector led to a chemical reaction in the stock.

Joe Terranova

On June 30th the Liquidator made a bullish bet on a bank. At the time he said, “I think JP Morgan is a steal in the lower $30s.”

Terranova must be laughing all the way to…. well, the teller window. Shares of JPMorgan climbed 16 percent after it beat profit estimates.

Karen Finerman

On June 23rd the Chairwoman began riding the Big Lots losing streak to profits. At the time she said, “We are short Big Lots so I am happy to see this one going lower. Insiders are relentlessly selling so you've got to ask yourself what do they know.”

We say it often but Finerman knows a thing or two about shopping. Shares of the discount retailer dropped 10 percent since Finerman's call and since she was short, she ended this trade with more cash in her register.

Now that’s “Fast Money.”
